DIY & How To’s – Creating Texture and Dimension with Stone – Ideas for the Interior and Exterior of Your Home
Featuring Eldorado Stone and Cultured Stone
It’s no small feat to transform a space into one that exudes warmth, character and a touch of rustic allure. With manufactured stone veneer, this challenge is made easier. These versatile materials have long been favored by homeowners and designers alike for their ability to add texture and dimension throughout any interior or exterior space, while being cost-effective, lightweight and easy to install. Whether you’re envisioning a charming fireplace surround or an accent wall that becomes a home’s focal point, there are a few simple ways to infuse organic charm and elevate the overall appeal of a space.
Embrace A Bold Kitchen Wall
For a kitchen transformation complete with vibrancy and natural textures, consider incorporating a stone accent wall. There are any number of texture and color combinations that can strike the perfect aesthetic balance for a backsplash, eat-in area, breakfast nook or open shelving display.
The most important thing to remember when updating a kitchen accent wall is to tie in some of the other color tones you see in the space as a whole. For example, you can use a subtle mix of taupes and bronze highlights to play off a prominent butcher block on the kitchen island, or you can choose a mix of eggshell and ivory hues to reinforce a set of white shaker-style cabinets.
Design with Nature in Mind
Design features that showcase natural elements provide a primal, multi-sensory approach to reinforcing our connection to nature. From fire features to stone statement walls, these additions create memorable spaces and evoke a sense of tranquility in the places where we spend most of our time. In fact, did you know that design details – like color and texture – can impact our moods, emotions and even our energy levels?
A stone veneer accent wall is the easiest way to incorporate unique, nature-inspired hues and textures into a living room space. Colors can be customized to fit a particular aesthetic as well, giving designers and homeowners greater creative control and allowing for color and texture matching between historic or legacy stone and new applications many years later.
Blur the Boundaries
With manufactured stone veneer, you can create a seamless transition between the comfort of your indoor spaces and the captivating allure of a natural outdoor landscape like this coastal home featuring Eldorado Stone. Allow a stunning stone veneer to begin in a foyer or living room and elegantly spill over to the exterior. Whether it’s a charming stone-clad fireplace or the walls of a patio or outdoor kitchen, these captivating design elements add texture and infuse an entertaining space with a sense of tranquility, warmth and lasting impression.
