When you think of cobblestone you might first imagine the stone that was used to pave the streets of Old Montreal. These smooth stones were gathered from stream beds. You can still enjoy visiting some of these charming streets today.
Faux rock panel Cobblestone is not meant for foot traffic but can be seen on facades, fireplaces and just about anywhere inside or out where you might enjoy a bit of nostalgia. They are randomly shaped rubble mix faux rocks that have a smooth but textured face. Mortar fills the area between each stone adding to the charm and realism of this faux stone veneer.
The irregular medium sized stones of cobblestone lend to a look more often referred to as a cottage stone. This faux stone veneer has found its way into homes for fireplace surrounds. Accenting the base of pillars on a front façade or backyard garden pergola is another choice for installation of these randomly shaped flat stones.
Cobblestone will take you back to another time. The colour blends available in cobblestone are not nearly as expansive as some of the other manufactured stone options nor do these rock panels look as authentic when a less realistic colour blend is chosen. Visit a showroom and see them for yourself.
A faux rock panel such as cobblestone will make a statement on the exterior or interior of any home. Whether the project is small or large these faux rock panel stones add another element of texture and colour to a project. Try installing them on a fireplace stone facing project in a low lit basement. Take a drive in the country and you may see cobblestones wrapping the pillars of a post on a covered wraparound porch.
