Stone veneer is a cost-effective cement-based material with a high-end look of stone. The panels are easy to install and can be used to enhance your curb appeal, outdoor entertaining area and more. Here are four places to add the natural beauty of stone to your home exterior:
BeOnStone panelized stone siding is an easy way to add interest and style to your existing siding. Add a stone veneer trim to the bottom third of your facade, posts and columns to make your entrance a focal point. Choose a colour of stone veneer that is a couple of shades lighter or darker than your siding for a subtle effect, or go bold with contrasting colours.
2. Outdoor Entertaining Area
Transform your backyard pergola into an outdoor oasis with a stone veneer feature wall and custom accents. The lush foliage will contrast well against stone veneer. Surround bench seating in stone veneer and top with colourful throw cushions to elevate your design. If you have an outdoor kitchen, combine stone veneer with a granite countertop for a sophisticated finish.
3. Fireplace & Chimney
Add warmth and comfort to your outdoor fireplace or chimney with stone veneer. Stone veneer will highlight your fireplace as the centre of attention, ideal for cold evenings and outdoor entertaining. Stone veneer is lightweight, non-combustible and safe to use on your fireplace and chimney.
Manufactured stone veneer pairs perfectly with natural colours and textures, which extend to your garden. Use Brown’s stone veneer on retaining walls to define your garden beds, create bench seating around your fire pit or build a stone veneer backdrop as a feature wall in your yard. Install lights to illuminate the rustic rocky surface of an evening.
