Stone and brick walls are an increasingly common resource, that just by occupying a few meters can completely change the image of a room.

In general, when we speak of stone walls, we distinguish two fundamental types: those of natural stone (usually slate or quartz) that provide some rustic air to spaces Natural stone involves a greater investment compared to reconstituted stone, depending on how much cement mixture is imitating the natural stone. 

Another option is the brick wall, which is the most economical solution and fits equally well in kitchen and bathroom designs.
