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, they would require all sorts of special treatments and about a month on a mason's calendar.

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.
