Norstone Rock Panels are a great choice for any interior stone veneer project where a unique and fresh look is desired. We work on projects ranging from entryways to alcoves, stairwells, accent and feature walls, powder rooms, fireplaces and many more. Essentially where any interior stacked stone wall is desired, Norstone is a natural fit. It actually never ceases to amaze the team at Norstone the different ways our customers dream up to use our real stone products for just about any indoor stone veneer projects. And as building products continue to get more and more advanced, we are seeing a rise in DIY construction using our stone wall panels because of how easy they are to install, especially as compared to traditional individual stone products.
Stacked stone veneer panels like our Standard Series Rock Panels, XL Series Rock Panels, or AKSENT 3D Rock Panels, are made from 100% real stone and are a perfect product for an entire wall or just a small accent in a room. A stone fireplace is a timeless look in any residential setting and a great way to dramatically change the way a space looks and feels as part of a renovation. Long linear products like Norstone Planc can complement a stone fireplace with a long and thin insert, while more traditional stacked stone panels can turn that stone fireplace into something right out of a ski chalet. With so many options to choose from, make your stone wall idea a reality with one of Norstone's many real stone products.
The most important consideration for an interior stone veneer project is making sure the wall itself is suitable for installation. Norstone's Stacked Stone Rock Panels weigh about 12.5 lbs / sq ft, which is pretty light when you think about the end product, but still most drywall or sheetrock wall substrates just aren't unsuitable for an interior rock wall installation. This isn't because they aren't strong enough, it's because drywall is essnetially gypsum and paper - and when you think about it that way, it's not something on which you'd naturally want to apply natural stone. That said, this is easily remedied by installing cement board over the existing wallboard and then you can begin installing the interior stone veneer over the freshly prepared substrate. Stone veneer interior walls have never been this easy. In the past, a stone fireplace installation using individual stones would require all sorts of special treatments and about a month on a mason's calendar. That same stone fireplace can be completed in a weekend using a real stone panel system product like Norstone.

When it comes to interior design and incorporating stone accent walls, as a designer, builder, architect, or project owner you should be striving to incorporate natural products over faux stone products for several reasons. Firstly, natural stone products do not emit VOCs, making them safe for interior environments. Secondly, interiors by their very nature mean that inhabitants will interact moree closely and more often with their surroundings - a natural stone product on a feature wall or fireplace, for example, is no different than a beautiful granite or quartz countertop - you will simply enjoy interacting with a nature-made product more regularly than a manufactured stone product. Finally, using natural materials inside the home will always add more value than using manufactured products. At Norstone, our goal is not only for your project to be beautiful, but for it to be a financially sound investment.
Once you have that amazing stone fireplace wall or real stone accent wall installed, a number of options are available for adding extra design elements to an interior stone veneer wall panels. One of the most popular is lighting, which can be projected either upward, downward, or designed to back light the stone, and controlled for brightness and color. Art pieces can also be incorporated into an interior stacked stone project, using a diamond-tipped masonry drill bit to drill through the stone to set the anchor points.
