Natural stone is an affordable option that can instantly enhance the beauty and function of your home. Due to its ability to compliment any kind of exterior design, veneer fieldstone is commonly used to spice up the exterior walls of both modern and traditional homes. There are many different ways in which you can use natural stone. Depending on the effect you want to achieve you can combine natural stone veneer with the existing siding of your house. However, be careful with the colours and textures your use since mixing and matching different textures with vibrant shades can have an overwhelming effect and ruin the look of your walls. That’s why it would be best to use veneer fieldstone in a shade and texture that compliments the wall’s colour.

Another creative method that can help you make the most of this stunningly versatile and elegant material is by adorning the columns of your house with stone veneer. Original stone columns are often very expensive to build and implement as a prominent architectural feature. Therefore, outfitting your concrete or brick columns with stone veneer will be a much affordable solution that will still provide an elegant and unique look.
