Designer Christine Da Costa visits Stone Selex to explore the benefits of a natural stone veneer for interior and exterior applications.
Everybody loves the look of natural stone, and for good reason. Natural stone is beautiful, whether you are using it on the exterior or in the interior of your home. However, there are a few prominent setbacks of natural stone: it’s expensive, it’s heavy, and it’s tricky to install. In lieu of these complications, there’s always natural stone veneer! Natural stone veneer is durable, cost-effective, and easy to install because it’s so lightweight.
What exactly is natural stone veneer?
Natural stone veneer is genuine stone, however it has been cut into thin, manageable, tile-like pieces. In addition to being easy to install, veneer can also withstand any temperature, meaning you can cover your entire home in it, if you desire. It can also withstand water and even chlorine exposure.
What is brick veneer?
Similar to stone veneer, brick veneer is essentially brick that has been cut thin, making it less expensive to purchase and much easier to handle. Brick veneer is also lightweight, durable, and easy to install. Paint your brick veneer to match your home’s existing décor, or leave it in its true form for a look that’s so authentic, nobody will be able to guess it’s veneer.
