Accent walls are a cool décor feature and in trend now, many designers and home owners make brick, painted, fabric and other accent walls. Stone accent walls bring a unique rustic feel to any space making it cozier, welcoming and more inviting.

Unlike real stone, a faux stone wall can be cut to size using basic woodworking tools. All you need to finish the installation is some exterior quality adhesives and some screws and you’ll have the project finished in a couple of hours.
