Adding stone veneer to your home during construction or renovation has many benefits. It’s cost-effective compared to solid stone cladding but still gives the same look and durability. In addition, it’s light, so contractors can install it on various surfaces. Stone veneer is also long-lasting, flexible, and versatile in design.
Stone veneer also has an incredible return on investment. Of all the common renovations and home improvements listed on Remodeling’s Cost vs. Value Report for 2020, adding stone veneer was the number one project in terms of value added to a property.
Grand Stone Veneer in Calgary offers decorative stone and brick veneer products for indoor and outdoor applications. They share three ways stone can improve your home:
Eye-catching home exteriors
Stone veneer comes in a wide range of colours, tones, stone types, and styles. It is timeless, so you don’t have to worry about it going out of style and can complement a range of exterior design schemes. Improving curb appeal will enhance your enjoyment of your home. Excellent curb appeal will also add value and marketability to your home, which is essential if you plan on selling in the future. If you’re not sure where to start, Grand Stone Veneer can discuss options that would best suit your home’s architecture and exterior. They’ll explain the difference between stone veneer and solid stone, and help you choose a stone veneer that you’ll love for years to come.
As mentioned, stone veneer is much lighter than solid stone. Its lighter weight means you can install it on more surface types, including home interiors. In addition, stone veneer products are easier to install than solid stone and offer more flexibility. This product can be cut and coloured to match your specific design or taste. It’s economical, attractive, and long-lasting, which is why it’s growing in popularity for interior fireplaces.
Accent areas can bring it all together
Using a little bit of stone veneer can go a long way and tie everything together. Stone veneer can add texture and depth to your front entryway, garage door, pathways, and other landscaping features. The stone colour and type are chosen to complement your home’s siding and other architectural elements and are not used to clad the house entirely.
Stone feature walls are becoming popular for the interior and can add an eye-catching focal point. For example, you can install a stone veneer feature wall in the kitchen to tie into the fireplace in the family room. In addition, you can use stone as a backsplash in the bathroom or kitchen to accent your wine cellar or hide loadbearing poles in the basement. Brick cladding is also increasing in popularity and is used as a feature wall in master bedrooms, living rooms, kitchens, and more.
