The stone market has been largely taken over by veneers both in the interior and landscaping market, mostly due to advancements that mean consumers can get the look of real stone at a fraction of the cost.
Both manufactured “faux” stone panels and real stone panels are available on the market, but there are some serious pros to choosing faux stone and brick over real rocks.
Faux stone is a great option for both interior and exterior decorating, adding texture and color to pretty much any space in your home. Whether it’s an accent wall or a backsplash for a kitchen or bathroom, faux stone is a style statement you’ll love.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can use faux brick and rock panels in home design!

Pros to Faux Brick and Rock Panels
Working with real stone often means that existing structures, like columns and fireplace surrounds will have to be reinforced to bear the additional weight. This isn’t the case with faux stone panels.
The lighter weight means they can be applied to walls and other structures without reinforcing the structure, they can be transported to the site cheaply, and you won’t need any masonry between each brick or rock.
In addition, you can easily find just the right shade of brick or stone for your paneling, something that can be tricky with real stone.
Between a lower installation cost, no masonry costs, better color options, and no need to reinforce existing structures, faux brick and stone is a great option for any homeowner, regardless of budget.
Faux Stone Pricing Options
Stone and rock panels tend to cost around $9-12 per square foot.
River rock panels will tend to cost around $11-$13, with some stores pricing falling as low as $7-$8 per square foot.
Faux brick panels will cost between $9-$12 per square foot.
Coral Stone panels may cost between $7-$10 per square foot.
Obviously it will be more pricey to do wall-to-wall faux stone in larger rooms.
It’s important to note that while faux stone and real stone veneers are typically around the same price for the panels, the amount of money saved on installation and other costs (like masonry) will shift the total cost in faux stone’s favor.
Faux Stone Panel Bathroom Ideas
1. Faux Layered Rock Walk-In Shower Enclosure
The interior of this shower is tiled in faux stone, which gives it a remarkable texture, much like entering into a cave. This is a perfect addition to a bathroom with a natural atmosphere, or in a rustic home.
2. Faux River Stone Soaking Tub Enclosure with Iron Detail
A simple enclosed bathtub can be dressed up with faux river rock paneling and decorative ironwork. The stonework takes this bathroom from plain to rustic, yet classic.
3. Faux Flagstone Walls in a Bathroom
The thick grout lines and stones in different shapes and sizes make the faux stone look as real as can be. The stone gives this bathroom a decidedly castle-like atmosphere.
Faux Stone Panel Kitchen Ideas
4. Faux Layered Stone Kitchen Backsplash
A dark layered stone backsplash adds texture and contemporary style to this light wood and granite kitchen layout. The stone goes up in panels, meaning it’s simpler to apply than the standard tilework usually found on kitchen backsplashes.
5. Faux Brick Kitchen
Brick is a popular choice for farmhouse and industrial style homes, but unless the brick was already existing, it can get expensive to tear down a kitchen just to build up brick walls. Faux brick paneling is the perfect solution to get the look with none of the hassle.
6. Faux Layered Stone Home Bar Backsplash
The use of several distinct colors in the faux stone backsplash ensures contrast while also picking up subtle tones out of the warm, light wood cabinetry and wine racks.
7. Faux Brick Kitchen Walls
This is another great example of faux brick in a kitchen area. It’s paired with other rustic elements, including weathered, colored wooden floors and ceilings.
Faux Stone Fireplace Ideas
8. Faux Layered Stone Fireplace Surround
The faux stone paneling on this fireplace surround transforms an otherwise plain drywall surround for a gas fireplace into something much more impressive and costly looking.
9. Black Faux Stone Fireplace Surround with Embedded Television
This is a gorgeous example of a dark stone facade on a fireplace surrounded fitted with a large television and cabinetry on either side.
10. Faux Layered Stone Gas Fireplace Surround and Stairs
This is a clever idea that makes use of a space that typically goes ignored. The stairwell has been fitted with a gas fireplace and made over with faux layered stone, evoking the sense of a more traditional fireplace.
11. Faux Layered Stone Fireplace Surround with Rustic Wooden Mantel
This is another great example of how faux stone can really dress up an otherwise builder’s grade or plain fireplace. The addition of a rustic wooden mantel is a great touch.
12. Faux Stone Outdoor Fireplace
The sturdy faux stone paneling is even suitable for outdoor fireplaces. This large structure is perfect for an evening outdoors with family and friends.
Faux Stone Accent Wall Ideas
13. Faux Layered Stone Accent Wall with Passthrough
This is a clean look for layered faux stone, making the accent wall look more contemporary than rustic, but still providing an eye-catching alternative to the cream walls.
14. Faux Layered Stone Accent Wall in Primary Bedroom
Layered stone as an accent wall in a bedroom is an attractive way to make the bed a focal point. Headboard or no headboard, visitors are going to notice the primary bedroom.
15. Faux Layered Stone Half Wall
Here, the faux stone is used to create an accent wall leading from the dining room into the kitchen area. It provides contrast and visual interest in an area that would otherwise be fairly plain.
16. Faux Dark Brick Accent Wall Behind Bed
While typically we think of brick, we think of bright red, but dusky brown bricks are an attractive option for the texture you love about brick, but not the bright coloration. Here, it allows the white iron bed frame and colorful pillows to stand out.
Faux Stone Panel Home Bar Ideas
17. Faux Stone Bar, Walls, and Support Pillars
There is a wealth of faux stone in this basement home bar. The walls, the base of the island, and the support columns throughout. Blue backlighting on the shelving gives the area a polished, nightclub-like feel.
18. Faux Stacked Stone Home Bar
Alternatively, for a more rustic look this stacked stone facade is a perfect solution. Paired with wooden cabinetry, a butcher-block island, and plenty of wine bottle storage, the stone stands out beautifully.
19. Spacious Home Bar with Faux Layered Stone Backsplash
While the stone in this spacious home bar has been greatly toned down, it provides a comfortable contrast from the rich, dark wood cabinetry and the yellow walls.
20. Faux Layered Stone Home Bar with Blue Backlighting
Again, blue light is used to highlight stonework and glass in a contemporary home bar area. Faux stone is used both on the walls and on the base of the bar.
Faux Stone Wine Cellar Ideas
21. Faux Rustic Stone Wall Wine Cellar
This narrow wine cellar is covered in faux stone paneling, giving the cellar the same atmosphere as underground, expensive wine cellars in Italy.
22. Heavily Textured Faux Stone Wine Cellar
Here’s another example of a wine cellar, this time with the faux stone paneling on one wall. It provides contrast to textured walls on either side.
23. Faux Brick Wine Cellar
Here, we see a wine cellar with a brick interior. The classic red is dotted with some darker “bricks.”
Faux Stone Panel Man Cave Ideas
24. Color-Contrasting Faux Layered Stone Wall
The color contrast between each “stone” has been upped for this accent wall, which sits behind a large entertainment center and television.
25. Decorative Faux Stone Wall in a Man Cave
The faux panels even look great behind built-in bookcases! This is an easy way to class up plain walls at the back of the shelving units.
26. Faux Stone Panels Behind Man Cave Bar
The entire back wall of this man cave’s bar area is paneled with faux stones. The difference in coloration and texture draws the eye right to the bar area.
27. Faux Stone Wall in Game Room and Man Cave
For those looking for a rustic aesthetic in a man cave, look no further. Faux stone has the delightful effect of rustic masculinity and is still so classic.

This patio’s privacy wall is covered in faux stone paneling, adding visual interest to the patio’s seating area, while also extending another foot or so above the wooden privacy fence.
29. Faux Brick Garden Wall Behind Iron Fence
This is an interesting example of faux brick being using in a garden setting. In areas where the fence is wrought iron and open to prying eyes, the privacy fence beyond is paneled in faux brick.

This outdoor kitchen area is wrapped in faux stacked stone, lending a decidedly elegant air to the patio entertainment area.
