The most popular way faux stone panels are used on a wall is to create an accent wall. Accent walls are wonderful because they are great at showcasing a specific feature. For example, many people choose to use an accent wall on the same wall they hang a valued piece of art or family portrait. Generally, the furniture will be arranged to face the wall as it becomes the point of focus in the room. How much better to have stone panels on a wall rather than plain paint? Check out the example below:
Another faux stone wall idea is to use the panels going up the staircase. This is a great way to add texture and dimension and also a unique look inside of your home. You will also be able to hang photography and artwork right on top of the panels going up the stairs, if you please.
Adding faux stone to a kitchen backsplash is also a huge hit. Backsplashes are great at filling in the gap between the wall and the countertop, and they also provide a moisture barrier.

Faux stone panels are impervious to moisture, and are resistant to mold, mildew, and rot. They are also easy to clean! Not to mention gorgeous:
A final idea on how faux stone panels can be used on a wall is in the bathroom. Add faux stone inside the shower or behind the bathtub to create a spa like feel right in the walls of your own home. Again, because the panels are impervious to moisture, you won’t have to worry about any water damage. And, there won’t be any hard to clean grout like there would be with authentic stone! Simply grab a damp rag and wipe them clean! Look how beautiful this bathroom is with the faux stone wall addition:
