Rock On

Think of stone tile and panels as your secret weapon for adding depth and warmth to any space—bath, kitchen, foyer, living room. For maximum effect, look for interesting veining, multiple heights of stone (premounted on hard backing for easy installation), and coarse-textured finishes

Stonewood quartzitic limestone in Ebony, Ravello honed marble, Idyllwild vein-cut honed marble, V10 Bianco Rockface chiseled stone mesh-mounted, Ledger stone by Jeffrey Court, Vestige Collection brushed stone in Zebrano, and V8 Split Plus Classico stone

1) The pattern of this flat stone mimics wood grain—use it to create a rustic yet easy-to-clean kitchen floor.  Stonewood quartzitic limestone in Ebony, $12 per square foot, at Granite & Marble Resources (maestromosaics.com)

2) Great on walls for a moody shower stall. Ravello honed marble, from $14.27 per square foot, at Ann Sacks (annsacks.com)

3) Turn up the chic on your fireplace surround. Idyllwild vein-cut honed marble, from $24.43 per square foot, at Ann Sacks

4) The ideal neutral backsplash for an all-white kitchen that needs some depth. V10 Bianco Rockface chiseled stone mesh-mounted on 12-by-24-inch sheets, $21.40 per square foot, at The Tile Gallery (tilegallerychicago.com)

5) Dress up an exterior or interior wall with some serious texture. Ledger stone by Jeffrey Court (stone slats of varying heights mounted on 6-by-24-inch panels), $17.51 per square foot, at Mid-America Tile (midamericatile.com)

6) Create a dramatic accent wall in your foyer or dining room. Vestige Collection brushed stone in Zebrano, $18.50 per square foot, at Artistic Tile (artistictile.com)

7) Skinny travertine slats with multiple finishes—honed, polished, and split face—are great in a bathroom that’s looking too flat and beige.  V8 Split Plus Classico stone mounted on 6-by-24-inch sheets, $25 per square foot, at The Tile Gallery
