New interior design trends in stone veneers for fireplaces, accent walls and bars
In today's busy, hectic world, your home is your castle - a place to forget the city's flashing lights and blaring horns. To truly escape, we often transform our homes with natural surroundings to create a peaceful, relaxing and soothing environment. But how do we do that?
Our parents' generation perfected their garden and shrubs. If they were wealthy, they even built lavish fountains.
Today, it's all about the
natural stone look. Whether you want a stone fireplace surrounded by country ledgestone,
marble counter tops for your new bar or to create added warmth and character with textured
accent walls, dramatic stone effects provide a soothing environment that takes you away to a better place.
But there's a problem. Natural stone looks beautiful but it's extremely inconvenient and expensive. It's bulky, heavy, difficult to manipulate, and can wreak havoc on the foundation of your home. So how can you achieve the look of natural stone without gutting your house?
Enter stone veneer.
The natural stone veneer revolution
Man made stone veneers - also known as faux or manufactured stone - are created by blending Portland cement with elements of natural stone and expertly selected pigments. The result is a completely natural-looking stone at a fraction of real stone's weight and cost. Thanks to its light weight, it's much more manoeuvrable. You can put it anywhere in your house without disturbing foundation and footings and without requiring structural reinforcing.
Stone veneers give you all the benefit of the real thing - with none of the hassle.
Finding the right stone veneer supplier
So you've decided to reap the rewards of stone veneer. You're not out of the woods yet.
artificial stone manufacturers cut corners and leave you with veneers that waste away in bad weather or deteriorate after a year or two. Top-quality

supplier you can trust. In Ontario, no company fills that role better than Stone Selex.
