Always wish you’d had the money to upgrade areas in your home with stone or brick but couldn’t afford the expense, time or skill required for the masonry work? There are great new options for DIYers to get that authentic stone and brick look without the expense or mess of putting in full stonework. Special veneer masonry panels can be easily installed by contractors or as a homeowner’s DIY project. These faux stone panels don’t require mortar or any masonry experience. They are installed using screws so it’s a cleaner, quicker and more affordable alternative that allows for easy but creative home projects.

Accent Walls and Small Rooms

Design options abound when creating a dramatic or rustic accent to any room by installing your choices of brick or stacked stone veneer panels. Choose from natural colors that coordinate perfectly with your room’s other features or décor theme. Create long shelves, indented pocket shelving, nooks, or an interesting backdrop for a gallery or warm cozy room. Consider turning a small basement or parlor room into your “wine cellar” by adding stone panels and vintage lighting. Be creative!

Fireplaces

Turn a tired old fireplace into a showcase. Creating a stone or brick-look surround can give the illusion of a larger hearth and become the focal point for a beautiful and functional mantel. Choose an elegant or refined stonework for that modern touch or perhaps a fieldstone design for country appeal. A stone veneer will also add more color and texture to your room.

Kitchens

While there are many ways to incorporate a brick or stone veneer into your kitchen, one of the most dramatic and easiest ways is to add a beautiful backsplash in the style of stone that fits your look. White kitchens can look amazing with light-colored faux stacked stone. Like any of your veneer stone or brick panels, you have a wide variety of styles, textures and colors to choose from for that perfect accent.
