5 Exterior Stone Ideas
The most traditional and most popular way to use stone veneer on an exterior space is stone wainscoting. There’s no question that this is a deservedly classic look, but in this blog, we’re highlighting exterior stone ideas you might not have seen before!Full Garage
On many homes the garage is just as key an element of curb appeal as the house itself. Stone siding can make your garage a style standout! In many cases, the garage is the largest and most used entrance to your house — you want every aspect of that entrance to be high-quality and thoughtfully designed. One of the most effective ways to accessorize your garage is by covering the entire garage front with stone veneer — around the doors and all the way up to the gable. For style bonus points, you can tie your garage stone color into another accent wall on a different part of your home.Outdoor TV Walls
This stone veneer idea for exteriors is actually inspired by one of our favorite interior ideas. If you have a television as part of your outdoor living space (which is quite the unique accent on its own!), we recommend covering or accenting the wall behind it in light-colored stone panels. Whether you choose full wall coverage or wainscoting, the impact will be impressive. The stone brings a visible, but unobtrusive touch to a central part of your beloved patio, porch, or deck!Doorway
This is one of the highest impact exterior stone ideas. Surrounding the entire doorway to your home showcases the stone look you love in a place that has maximum visibility. From a distance, the stone can contrast well with the look of your entry door. Up close, visitors to your home will have a chance to get a detailed look at the floor-to-ceiling stone pattern!Outdoor Fireplace
In recent years, outdoor fireplaces have become a staple in outdoor living spaces. Most contractors build them to be safe, efficient, and practical, which is fantastic — but stone can make them beautiful! Whether the fire is lit or unlit, the stone backdrop will serve to enhance the look of the space and will be a true conversation starter. You don’t have to wait until your outdoor living space is finished to upgrade it with stone, either — have your deck contractor use Affinity Stone during the build!Chimney Transformation
This exterior stone idea doesn’t apply to every house, but if it fits yours, we think you’ll fall in love. Some homes come built with amazing fireplaces, but the chimney pipe exteriors are clad in the same vinyl siding as the rest of the house. Not only will the vinyl likely deteriorate over time due to the heat, but it’s a true missed opportunity to make your home look exceptional. Replacing the plain vinyl with bold stone panels doesn’t just improve the fireplace, but your entire exterior, too!
