Another example of how beautiful a room can be with the addition of faux stone in a room but specifically on a fireplace.

As seen in these photos, nothing can add that natural and charming look like faux stone can.

It can be very challenging to a blend a new element into a project without making it look out of place. This can happen when the texture of a stone doesn't match the decor. For example of a home has a more traditional style, the use of a gray slate elements will probably not blend in. If a modern contemporary environment maybe it may not be appropriate to use a faux stone like river rock - which it looks beautiful in other settings.

How to easily reface a fireplace with faux stone panels.

Posted on May 12, 2012

Antico Elements has been in the remodeling business for decades so we know very well how homeowners approach a remodeling project. Usually there is one person who takes care of the construction and another will worry that the project will never be completed.

This is we are very product to offer faux stone panels that are incredibly easily to install and the take very little time.

The customer below was worried about having to remove the exiting brick which were aesthetically outdated and did not match the rest of the decor in the room. When we explained that our faux stone panels can be directly installed over the existing brick or any other surface the homeowner was pleasantly surprised.

As long as the surface on which you want to install the faux stone panels is clean and free of dust and oily substance you can simply use some inexpensive construction adhesive to install the stone panels. In this case we recommend the use of some masonry screws ( some are called Tapcons and are usually blue ). To cover the screw heads some caulk can be used and then painted with our touch-up kits to completely conceal the use of screws.
