Feature walls made a big splash in the design world in recent years as decorators finally reached the conclusion that there’s no reason for all the walls in a room to be the same colour. A feature wall in a different hue can turn a bland vertical space into a design statement that commands attention. If not done artfully, however, the abrupt change in colour can have a jarring effect. Today, savvy interior designers are realising that a wall with a different texture like natural stone cladding has a more pleasing impact on the viewer than one with a sharply contrasting colour.

Real stone that has been cut into thin slices, stone cladding makes it easy and affordable for anyone to enjoy wall cladding that has the three-dimensional appearance of authentic stacked stone.

Homes have been built and decorated with stone for thousands of years, but home-owners have never added more options for achieving the look of stone construction, than they do today. From kitchen back splashes to garden walls, elegant fireplaces to rustic fire pits, stone cladding makes it possible to decorate just about any surface with natural stone, indoors and out.
Not only does stone cladding provide your home with a beautiful and distinctive style, it also has major benefits around insulating
and heating your home. Good stone cladding provides effective insulation keeping the internal temperature constant, and avoiding an over reliance on appliances such as heaters and air conditioning systems. Read more
