Limestone in Design

In recent years, warm, neutral colors have gained popularity in interior and exterior design, with limestone becoming a favored material over marble for its warmth and superior durability. Natural stone like limestone creates a warmer space with more durability than marble. Our Austin Rustic Ashlar has a matte appearance which adds soft texture, creating a calming environment perfect for any home, spa, or office space.

Installing Austin Rustic Ashlar

The installation of Austin Rustic Ashlar follows the same steps as our recommended thin stone veneer installation process. Prior to installation, you must decide the overall pattern or style you wish to apply the stone. Austin Rustic Ashlar is typically applied with mortared joints between each stone. Some may apply the stone utilizing the dry-stacked method. This would require additional cutting and trimming to get each stone flush with one another.

This stone veneer’s overall appearance is quite customizable due to its neutral coloring. When paired with a gray mortar, more of the creamy gray tones of the stone appear. Alternatively, a white mortar will bring out the warmer beige tones of the stone. If you are a homeowner, make sure to discuss with your installer so that they can choose the correct style to achieve your desired look.
