Have you ever walked into a house and asked yourself: “What’s missing”? Sometimes a room just needs that extra little touch to make it stand out more, and for these instances we definitely recommend a wall surface clad in stone or brick. 

Of course a multitude of options await you should you want to go this route, from raw brick and granite to slate and sandstone – and many many more! They can be used to style up anything from hallways and niches to front façades and dining room focal walls. And just think of the possibilities once different colours come into play!

Let’s look at some visual stimulation for further inspiration…
