I’m not a fan of the vertical layout, sorry! I like the horizontal because it kind of ties together the two rooms– consistency! 🙂 That stone you’ve chosen is beautiful!

Horizontal for sure!

I really like the vertical. Especially since it’s the basement and I’m assuming the ceiling is a little low, so the vertical will sort of lengthen the wall. Since it’s the basement I don’t think it matters if it’s cohesive with the kitchen backsplash (plus I don’t know that I’d want a whole wall that looks like backsplash). But disclaimer, I’m in the south and have never even been in a basement! So I don’t totally know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, I don’t think it matters. It’ll look good either way!

I like the vertical stone in your inspiration pic but for some reason i think the horizontal looks better in your home. I don’t think you should add stone into your kitchen, I think it’s going to feel very texturally busy and maybe make the space look dated.

The inspiration pic is of a much more modern fireplace, so while it may work there I think it would look a little off with your traditional stove. I would go horizontal. I would not add stone to your island. I think stone on the island would be overwhelming with your granite and floor tiles. I like the island as is.

I’d leave the kitchen as it is and go with the horizontal on the wall!

MrsWitty :  I vote to set it vertically. I think it will heighten the wall by pulling your eyes upward. I also think it’s a more updated look in general. I do not think you have to worry about creating a uniform flow between your kitchen and basement, as they’re on different floors. Incorporating the same stone will be enough to bring everything together.
