Want a kitchen straight out a French farmhouse, but live in a modern American home? A kitchen wall remodel like this one could be the answer.
A current favorite of ours and one of the coziest looking interior projects we’ve seen was this one – the work of an enterprising homeowner who turned their outdated, American-style kitchen into a cute and rustic retreat straight out of the old world.
The secret was using Carlton Ledgestone panels, intricately detailed in Harvest shades. Cut to size with a regular wood saw, and attached directly to the wall with regular construction adhesive and screws, they made the boring come alive with texture, color and character.
Made from durable polyurethane foam, the panels are molded from real stone; every nook, cranny, crevice and imperfection is exactly copied and recreated.
The result? From looks alone, these panels are practically impossible to tell from the real thing.
Our design-minded homeowner finished his masterpiece by offsetting each row of panels – cutting each subsequent row of panels in half to ensure that none of the beautifully detailed patterns looked repetitive.
The panels are designed to slot together like a jigsaw puzzle, so the result was a stunning, seamless stone wall pattern that wouldn’t look out of place in the kitchen of an old French farmhouse.
