What Is Stacked Stone?

February 4, 2020

We love the look of stacked stone on vertical spaces—it’s a great way to add texture and visual interest to your home’s indoor and outdoor areas. Whether you’re adding a touch of rustic flair to your sleek contemporary kitchen or texture to your patio walls, using stacked stone is a cost-effective and easy way to elevate the look of your room.

How it’s installed

What is stacked stone? It comes in a variety of different shapes and textures in Brooklyn, NY, ranging from “we just cut this out of the quarry” to sleek and smooth layered rock. While it’s meant to look like a solid stone wall, it actually isn’t—thin pieces of stone are applied to a backing, then the entire sheet is applied to your wall. This allows you to get a contemporary and polished look for a fraction of the price a complete stacked stone wall would cost, since there is significantly less labor and stone involved.

Stacked stone is designed for non-load-bearing walls, given that it is an outer feature rather than a building material itself, but it can go nearly anywhere: kitchen backsplashes, bathroom walls, fireplaces and mantels and even outdoor deck and patio walls.

The stone doesn’t have grout, which is intentional, as it would ruin the “stacked” look. The cost will depend on which kind of stone you choose as well as the finish—the more polished your stone, the more expensive it will be.

Choosing the right stacked stone

Stacked stone is, of course, made of natural stone, so whichever type you pick will dictate the colors and overall look of your wall. For more natural looks, you’ll want to pick a softer stone like limestone or travertine, whereas polished looks are better suited for granite or quartz stones.

When you’re choosing the right kind of stacked stone for your project, you should consider where the wall will be located and the general look you’re going for. Then consider the natural palette that each type of stone can offer. Often, they will come in soft grays, browns, golds and creams, but you may also find dramatic black, white and charcoal stone available. Depending on what is currently in stock (some suppliers offer seasonal or limited-time offerings), there may be an even larger range of stone colors, types and textures available.

No matter what look you’re trying to achieve, you’re sure to find a stacked stone wall that’s right for you.
