The way the exterior of your home looks is arguably more important than the way it appears inside. Your home’s exterior style and appearance have a lot to do with its value, its curb appeal, and how quickly it’s able to sell when put it on the market. For these reasons, many homeowners work hard to ensure that their exterior is stylish, kept up, and in keeping with the rest of their home’s architecture. And while there are many different materials on the market to help you do this, not all of them will give you the same beauty, texture, and longevity of natural stone. Stone cladding and siding panels add richness and appeal to any area you install them on, including all areas of your home’s exterior and landscaping.
What really makes the design pop, however, is the lighter stone surrounding the gas fireplace, adding both function and visual warmth.
In this case, the stone follows you right beneath the archway that leads to the front of the home, then appears again surrounding the door.
Using stone as an accent doesn’t have to create contrast with whatever else you have installed there.
