Natural stone has been used in home décor for decades with beautiful results. Stone veneer – the latest in home décor trends – captures the quality and beauty of natural stone at a less expensive price. Composed of natural stone elements combined with Portland cement and other components, stone veneer offers you the look, shape, texture and color of its natural counterpart at a fraction of the cost.

Benefits of Using Stone Veneers

Stone veneers can reproduce almost any stone wall type using hundreds of exquisite designs. Its lightweight construction and design simplifies transportation to your home and installation. If you have construction experience, you could install your stone wall on your own, saving you money on hiring a professional from the outside.

Stone veneers are compatible with almost all contemporary wall materials to include wood, metal, cement, brick and others. As such, they can be used to redesign any wall in your home for greater personal appeal. Through the use of stone veneers, you can create a custom home environment that will be the envy of family and friends.

Decorating with Stone Veneers

Stone veneer makes a perfect choice to redecorate an interior fireplace or accompanying accent wall. As the veneers are heat resistant, they are quite suitable for indoor or outdoor fireplaces. Veneer surfaces are easy to maintain and clean, requiring no special cleansers or polishes to keep their attractive appearance. Constructed of hard, durable material, your veneers can withstand shocks, pressure and heat without chipping, cracking or color fading. They are built for beauty and endurance and will enhance the interior of your home for years to come.

You can choose stone veneers in an array of designs, shapes, sizes and colors to give you just the look you desire. To complement your current decor, choose a veneer color that blends in with your surroundings. Highlight a fireplace or wall by choosing a contrasting color and design, making this area the center of attention. Through your choice of decorative veneer, you create the setting and mood you want for your home environment. Stone veneers are a trademark of custom homes, giving your decor a unique and personalized touch.
