Beginning a fireplace stone facing project requires a plan. If you intend to tackle the project on your own, researching the proper installation will go a long way to making sure your project is successful. There are many resources on the World Wide Web on making a stone fireplace, but a good place to start is at a Stone Selex store.
There are many choices of natural and manufactured stone veneer to update your fireplace. Brick in interesting patterns was a trend in the seventies that many have inherited in a home purchase. We are seeing brick in decorating but mainly on accent walls for an exposed brick look. But if you want that retro look, there are plenty of brick veneers to recreate it.
When you are looking for a new home, you may or may not need to have a fireplace. If you walk into a home where the fireplace stone facing is eye catching, you will certainly remember this feature. The same is true if it was an eye sore. Creating a cozy atmosphere with a stone veneer fireplace will bring value to your best investment.
Start by selecting a stone veneer that is easy to install and gives you the look and feel that you want in your space. With so many styles and colour choices you may have trouble choosing just one. There are decorative stone veneers that can be grouted or non-grouted and there are stone veneer panels that will simplify your stone veneer fireplace project. Consider looking through decorating magazines for inspiration.
Installing stone veneer on your fireplace façade can be a weekend project once the surface preparation is complete. Follow manufactures directions for proper installation and check your local building code. If the installation is more than you can handle, consider hiring a stone mason to do it for you.
A room with a very high ceiling needs more creativity to make it a cozy space. When the wall reaches beyond one floor to the next a great way to bring it together is to extend one of the elements. Here a fireplace stone facing has been added and extended beyond the mezzanine to the top of the ceiling. While grand it still adds warmth and a homey atmosphere. All the elements in this room come together around a stone veneer fireplace.
A gas fireplace may have been added to this room to warm it up, but even an electric fireplace would do the trick. There are so many possibilities when it comes to adding faux stone veneer to your fireplace stone facing and you will see many examples at a Stone Selex showroom. If you can’t visit one right away, order a free catalogue and begin imagining the possibilities.
