Looking to make a statement in your home? A feature wall is the perfect way to do it. Feature walls, also known as accent walls, are one of the best ways to liven up your space, adding colour, pattern or texture to one wall in any room. They draw in the eye, becoming the centrepiece of the room, and can either be bold or subtle, depending on the look you want to achieve. One of the most gorgeous options is a stone feature wall, and you can get the look by using one of Gentek’s most loved specialty products: Versetta Stone.
All About Versetta Stone
Versetta Stone is manufactured stone veneer that offers the authentic look of traditional stone masonry. You get the beauty of real stone without the high cost and installation time. Versetta Stone is mortarless and cement-based and its panelized design is installed with mechanical fasteners so your contractor can simply recreate the craftsmanship of stone masonry using nails or screws.
While it’s often used on the exterior of homes to create a beautiful stone look, you can also use Versetta Stone inside to create a stunning feature wall. Inspired by countries around the world, it’s available in an array of colours and textures unique to each place. Versetta stone precisely replicates natural stone through its patterns and stone shapes. It’s cast in molds and hand coloured with iron oxidized pigments to create the subtleties found in nature. The rugged texture and purposeful irregularities offer a well-worn look that gives it even more authenticity.
