Advantages: Ledgestone has great texture, and works well in a variety of styles. Most bathrooms with ledgestone use it on a single feature wall, although occasionally it's installed throughout the space. Many homeowners choose to add downlighting and wash these walls with light to highlight the texture and shadows that the ledgestone creates.
5. Use a second tile choice to make a feature wall. Adding a second tile choice as a feature is a great look I see more and more these days.Be careful about using small ledgestone tile, unless you know your water does not leave staining on your tile. Ledgestone achieves the stacked-rock look — like on this shower wall — with the rough face of the stone facing out. The rough surface means that it’s slow to drain, and water with a heavy mineral content will build up quickly. Here in Vancouver, British Columbia, the mineral content in our water would stain the rough surface of ledgestone in a few months’ time.Shop: Revamp your bathroom with a new vanity
Smaller vanities and powder baths can also look fantastic with an open vanity! Imagine this space with a floor-to-countertop doors and drawers. It would appear incredibly closed in and lack style. By giving this vanity furniture-like legs and open shelving, you immediately get the feel of more space.
This large format 12"x24" tile has a linear, fabric-like design. It's used here to cover the walls and floor, providing soothing visual texture in a minimalist bath. Coordinating mosaic tiles wrap the curb and shower floor. Matchstick stone mosaic on the feature wall adds lightness and tactual texture to the room.
