2019 Industry Trends Using Stone Veneer

July 9, 2019

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to take on some projects around your home. According to a recent study, people are moving less then they did even ten years ago. With fewer homeowners moving, more are looking to take on projects around their homes to mix things up and stay modern. Stone veneer fits right into this strategy. From a complete exterior facelift, to adding texture to a master bedroom, stone veneer helps homeowners create a space they want to stay in for years to come, while also staying current with the latest design trends.

Whether you’re sprucing up your exterior or adding some contoured style inside, we have you covered. Fusion Stone’s thin stone veneer products are easy to use and timeless, suiting past and current design trends. Find out what the hottest stone veneer-related trends are for 2019 and get ideas for all around your home.

Pillars and columns
Just because something is integral to a structure doesn’t mean that it can’t be unique and decorative as well. Pillars and columns are a wonderful example of this. Try adding stone veneer to the pillars and columns on your front porch, back patio or inside your home to offer up a look that presents elegance and strength.

Combining textures
In past years some design trends suggested homeowners stick with one textured theme. Not this year, where we’re seeing the infusion of a variety of textures and materials. Wood, metal and stone can be used together in an endless number of ways. Try using different materials in a den or rec room to develop a space that is not only interesting to be in, but to look at as well.

Natural materials
Some materials come and go when it comes to design trends. This year, any material that is natural looking is very in. Wood, stone and planned landscaping are working in unison to create a stunning and cohesive appearance on a home’s exterior. Inside, mix stone and wood with a variety of plant life to build a relaxing and organic space that can offer serenity to you and your family.

Outdoor kitchens and bars
More people then ever are embracing the outdoors as not only a place to eat and BBQ, but as a place to cook. Outdoor kitchens are a great compliment and extension to any home and are extremely versatile. Consider adding Fusion Stone all around the kitchen area to add a nice contrast to the countertop and stainless-steel elements. And don’t forget about an outdoor bar area. Enjoy a few drinks with family and friends while offering up some of your own homemade cocktails in a setting that is rich with colour and texture.

Bring the outdoors inside
To continue with the natural elements and outdoor trends that are prominent in 2019, designers are bringing the outdoors inside by creating a space that is welcoming, raw and authentic.

Your home, office or business are great places to incorporate this trend. An accent wall is a simple, but effective project using stone veneer. Try adding a border of stone veneer around any or all rooms of your home to mix with other materials. Or, add stone around your indoor fireplace. Let the beauty of the outdoors intertwine with the interior of a space to mold a whole new look.
