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.
Lehigh Cobblestone Featured in a Cozy Kitchen Remodel
The finished product! A stunning old world-style kitchen is recreated
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the coziest looking interior projects we've seen was this one - the work of an enterprising homeowner who turned their outdated, American-style kitchen into a cute and rustic retreat straight out of the old world.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 Lehigh Cobblestone 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.
Before and After: From drab to fab
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.
