Imagine This: Stone Veneer

Stone on an accent wall or to update a mantle and fireplace surround.

Stone veneer is a fun way to update a room. The options are endless and can be used in so many different ways. Here are some of my favorite looks:




This is how stone veneer looks installed in a display at Mosaic Tile—beautiful, high end and modern. I love it!


 














Here are some different natural stone options. There are so many styles and color palettes to choose from.





















This is man-made stone veneer from Riverside Brick Supply on Roseneath Road. It's called stone veneer, but make no mistake—its thickness varies from 1-to-3 inches!





















There are so many great brick options at Riverside.













This slate/bluestone at Mosaic Tile is perfect for a cozy fireplace.  











And this white stone at Mosaic Tile would make a gorgeous accent wall.



















This exotic look from Mosaic Tile could be used for a stylish bar area backsplash.








This is the before. My client’s challenge is to warm this up and soften the hardness of all of the white built in shelves.























And, ta da!—here is my design. I removed the skimpy over mantle detail and tile; then added a grey-toned stone and an earthy green paint color. This is the simulation I created to show my client what the end result will look like. Follow my facebook page to see the real deal.
