When you first move into a home, whether it is a new build or an existing home, it can look incredibly bare and impersonal. It is in both the small details and the statement decor that you can impart your personal taste and style and make your house into a home that you will be truly proud of and in which you will feel completely comfortable. One unique and interesting way you can not only impart personal style but elegance, luxury and grandeur is with stone moulding. Stone moulding can be used in a variety of ways to enhance your home and below we will discuss three applications that would spectacularly elevate the design aesthetic of any home.
1. Home Exterior
- Just like icing on a cake, stone moulding stops the exterior of a home from being flat and boring and brings dimension and visual interest. A drab exterior leaves much to be desired. Curb appeal is important because it is the first thing anyone sees when they visit your home and it sets the tone for their overall experience. Stone moulding can be used in a variety of ways on your home’s exterior to highlight architectural features. Stone moulding can be used along the roof line, around windows, around doorframes, along balconies, around garages and so much more. Your home has unique architectural features that should be highlighted and enhanced by stone moulding, and if your home is lacking, stone moulding can make all the difference.
2. Home Interior
- In the same way that stone moulding can enhance your home’s exterior architectural features, it can also enhance a home’s interior features. We have all seen crown moulding in a home and marveled at the way it transforms a space but stone moulding is the ultimate way to add elegance and visual interest. There are a variety of styles to choose from with stone moulding to perfectly compliment your home’s unique design aesthetic and interior decor. Stone moulding adds depth and draws focus so it is the perfect complement to things like doorframes, as a transition from ceiling to wall, as a chair rail, around windows, around fireplaces and more.
3. Landscape Design
- There are a lot of ways to incorporate carved stone into landscape design. Stone moulding can be used to accent architectural features in landscape design, along balconies or decks, or near landscape structural such as arbors, pergolas or more. Additionally, it can be used to highlight features around a pool to create the ultimate feeling of luxury and class.
