Choosing stone veneer colours that will add a dynamic twist to your project.

All Stone Selex products come in a variety of colours. When choosing the most appropriate stone veneer for a space it is important to match the existing colour palette in a room or space. Pay attention to the wall colours as well as the existing furniture.

Arranging the stone

Most stone veneer will require a level but if you’re aiming to create a more natural look then a more complex arrangement process must be established. Larger stone veneers like Fieldstone, Tuscan Fieldstone, and Cobble Stone will require more thorough planning. Since they are large, irregular in shape and heavier than most other stone veneers they require special attention in the installation process.
