Creative ways to use stone veneers
What are stone veneers? Stone veneers are a manufactured material to resemble the look of natural stone without the weight. The combination of cement, light aggregates, and pigment creates various textures, size, shape to suit any style. The characteristics make stone veneers a perfect decorative element for many exterior and interior home designs. Creating interior accent walls, exterior siding, and outdoor living spaces are just a few creative ways to incorporate stone veneers. Stone veneers can be placed anywhere you choose. Naturally, there are more suitable placements. However, that is one of the benefits. Stone veneers do not interfere with the foundation or structural or components. Therefore, if you are looking to make some easy décor changes, stone veneers are the perfect solution.
One creative way to incorporate stone veneers would be creating an accent wall. Incorporating stone veneers as part of interior décor is an affordable and popular renovation trend that will add charm to plain walls and elevate the home’s entire look. Adding an accent wall for your fireplace, bathroom wall, or foyer immediately offers that wow factor and may even be a conversation piece. Some may think having a stone feature inside the home might throw off the aesthetic of the original interior design. However, there are many varieties of stone veneers to choose from. Contemporary or cozy and rustic, the texture and colour options allow you to blend and match the interior design seamlessly.
Stone veneers can also be added to separate pieces that are not part of the home structure. For example, suppose you want to add a bit of charm to your kitchen. You can add stone veneers to the base of a kitchen island. Or you may want to add stone veneers to the base of a kitchen bar. The benefit of stone veneers is you can place them wherever you see fit.
Another creative way to incorporate stone veneers would be to the exterior part of the home. For example, suppose a home contains pillars or columns. The addition of stone veneers can add dimension and elevate any landscape design features. This concept can be incorporated into the interior as well. Many homes have simple pillar structures. Whether it poses structural purpose or design, adding stone veneers can tie in the overall aesthetic.
The addition of outdoor living spaces has become an increasingly popular trend. Some homeowners choose to decorate their landscape with a simple outdoor living space equipped with a lounge area or fire pit. Some choose luxurious features for their outdoor living space, which can include an entertainment system and culinary area. Whichever design you choose for your yard space, you can achieve an elegant landscape with the installation of stoner veneers.
Does the yard space contain a pool, or are there thoughts of installing a pool in the future? Water features such as waterfalls that cascade into a pool is another area to implement stone veneers. A landscaping professional will assist you in choosing the suitable material, texture, and style for your desired look.
