Stone Veneers for your Cottage style Fireplaces.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of burning wood in a home on a cold winter night. The fire crackles, warms the room and adds life to a space. Wood burning fireplaces are functional and aesthetically pleasing but can be costly and high maintenance. As a result most home owners will settle for a gas or electric fireplace to suite their needs. If only there were a way to combine the authentic feel of one with the practicality of the other. Well now there is and Stone Selex has the answer. The technique is simple but very effect, customers have been raving about this method for years and all it requires is choosing your favourite stone veneer.
Okay well there’s actually more to it then just that. Creating an authentic looking wood burning fireplace is based on the chimney structure. All wood burning fireplaces require a chimney for ventilation and oxygen for the wood to burn. This is what the contemporary fireplaces are missing and what subtracts from the feel of having a fireplace. The remedy is using Stone Selex stone veneer to act as the chimney stones. The illusion works surprisingly well and has had customers satisfied for years. One can say that creating authentic looking fireplaces that are affordable and don’t require a complete home renovation is our specialty.
The greatest part about all this is that you can choose whatever stone veneer you like best. Virtually all our stone veneer products work well for this type of project. For a really aged castle like chimney try the Fieldstone, Tuscany Rubble or the new Cathedral Stone line. Or for a more neatly stacked stone veneer look into the Dimensional Champlain or Clairmont stone veneers. And to attain a really neat contemporary look try the Canyon or Country Ledge. Even the River Stone line
works well for this type of project.
