Nothing beats using stacked stone ledger and brick to create a natural texture that adds character throughout your home. You can find stacked stone and brick in easy-to-use panels, and with so many design options, it’s no surprise it remains a builder’s favorite. Let’s dive in and discover how to add stone ledger and brick to your home.

1. Spice Up Your Patio

Add [stacked stone ledger](https://www.flooranddecor.com/ledgers-stone) to your patio to bring natural tones to your space and blend your design with the outdoors. When you combine stone ledger with [brick ](https://www.flooranddecor.com/brick)or [stone flooring](https://www.flooranddecor.com/stone-floor-and-wall-tile), you create the ideal extension of your home that ties the entire space together.

Use stone or brick around an outdoor fireplace or kitchen or use it for a privacy wall for a unique outdoor area. Stacked stone ledger will draw even more attention to the natural elements of your space.

3. Warm Up Your Fireplace

One of the most popular ways to use stacked stone ledger or brick is around the fireplace. Stone ledger and brick withstand high temperatures, making either the perfect fireplace construction material. Additionally, stacked stone ledger or brick surrounding your fireplace brings visual interest and texture to your indoor space.

While stacked stone and brick come in many different styles and colors, the most popular fireplaces use either warm beige, brown, or black in their designs. These colors allow the fireplace to become a focal point, and they complement most color schemes. While white is always a popular choice in finishes, it’s not recommended for fireplaces. You’ll find yourself cleaning soot more than you wish to keep your white stone sparkling.

4. Make the Perfect Accent Wall

While it’s no secret that stacked stone ledger and brick bring a lot of texture to walls, too much can quickly overwhelm your space. Using a stone ledger or brick on an accent wall gives your room dimension without overdoing it. Alternatively, stone ledgers and brick look great in smaller areas, making it an ideal texture for entryways and spa-like bathrooms.

5. Bring Industrial Elements Into Your Bathroom

Brick is a staple material when creating an industrial design. Balance your design with polished materials, like smooth marble, to create a perfect harmony between the materials, or pair your brick with a shiplap wall to create a softer feel. Another tip for using brick in your design is to use neutral colors. By using light colors throughout the rest of your space, you can keep the room feeling fresh.
