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. Some 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 stone veneers shouldn't just mimic the real thing in appearance; they should mimic natural stone's durability. That's why you need a manufactured stone supplier you can trust. In Ontario, no company fills that role better than Stone Selex.

Why Stone Veneer or Faux stone is preferable?

Stone Veneer, as building material has captured the market due to cost factor and ease of installation. It can greatly alter the look of your house by lending a natural appearance in a stylish manner. Faux stone can be utilized in a number of ways depending upon the need. A home owner can use Fax stones for Interior Designs or can undertake faux stone siding. People are using Stone Veneer for Fireplaces as well in order to improve interiors of their house. All these reasons combine to make Stone Veneer preferable over other materials for home decoration.
