Thin Stone Veneer Projects Gallery

I have a lot of friends and clients who have stopped by our site, and even though they have said that they like the look and feel of what we have done here at Thin Stone Veneer, everybody keeps suggesting that I should have had some sort of gallery to kind of showcase some of the work we have done using the products that we sell.

Create Stunning Rooms By Using Thin Brick Veneer

One of the great aspects of using one of our thin brick veneer products is that now you can have the elegant natural brick look in just about any room in your house without all the concerns that you have to deal with if you were using a standard size brick. This is a major plus if you want to remodel spaces in your home that just won’t accommodate the size and the weight of a standard brick.

Another factor that really makes our customers smile is the amount of cost savings you will have if you use a thin brick veneer!

Remodeling With Historic Philly Cobblestones

If you’re looking for something incredibly unique to use in your remodeling projects, then I suggest you take a look at using Philly cobblestones. This unique stone product dates back to our ancestors and we harvest right from the source, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Now don’t just think that these are confined to using in driveways and walkways. Absolutely not! We’ve taken it a step farther and now are offering Philly cobblestone floor tiles that can be installed just like any other ceramic floor tile!

Needless to say, it certainly will make for some interesting bits of conversation the next time you have guests! As I like to say, don’t settle for ordinary. If you need help with any of our products, just pick up the phone and give us a call!

Thin Stone Veneer Outdoor Fireplace Project:

This was a project that we just finished this spring. Now granted, we still had a few things to finish up when I took these photos, but I wanted to show you that our thin stone veneer can be used in so many projects both indoors and out. Now just think how nice this area will be with a fire going and you sitting out in your backyard in comfy chairs. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?

Creating An Elegant Outdoor Living Space:

As you can see from these photos I took, this job was more than creating an outdoor fireplace using our thin stone veneer products. This job entailed creating a gorgeous living area complete with a fireplace, a patio area, and surrounding walls. If you look closely at the one photo, our customers are already enjoying the fireplace! Not only did we use one of our thin stone veneers in the creation of the fireplace and the walls, but we also used our Philly cobblestones and some flagstone for a good portion of the common area. Now take a look at the stunning results. Imagine the enjoyment of sitting in front of that fireplace with the stars overhead, or entertaining your friends in an area such as this. If you would like some information on any of the thin stone veneer that was used, or want to know about our historic Philly cobblestone products, then don’t hesitate to give us a call.

A Thin Stone Veneer Fireplace Under Roof:

This was a job where we took an existing covered patio and turned it into a unique outdoor living space. As you can see, we built low accent walls, used stone for countertops, and created space for the customer’s grill. We also situated everything so that the gorgeous view they enjoy remained unobstructed. Now it doesn’t matter if it’s pouring rain outside, our customers can ease back in their chairs, throw some steaks on the grill and enjoy a relaxing fire all at the same time.

Some Recent Philly Cobblestone Floor Tile Installations:

As I stress to many of our customers who ask us about our Philly cobblestones, these unique stones can also be used to create gorgeous floors, not just unique driveways and outdoor areas. We accomplish this by cutting the reclaimed cobbles so you can use them just like you use any type of stone flooring. Now as you can see from these photos, you’re really only limited to your creativity! Look at the gorgeous kitchen floor, the unique entryway and yes, we even used our Philly cobblestones in a bathroom!

Thin Stone Veneer Bar Project:

Now here is a project that one of our customers did use one of our thin stone veneers to build accent columns to set off his new bar. Pretty cool looking don’t you think? Can you imagine all the parties and get-togethers you could have in a space like this? I know I can. And if this customer ever has the mind to sell his home, think this room might get a few “wow’s” when first seen? Absolutely!

The Results Using One Of Our Natural Thin Stone Veneers Were Absolutely Stunning!

As you can see from the photos that I took, the use of one of our natural thin stone veneer products speaks for itself. The veneer that our customer chose is called Ashlar. The tones of this stone give you a very rich blend of shades of grey and chocolate. As our client said, “nice and earthy”.

Philly Cobblestones In Action Again!

Here is a set of pictures from a job we just finished using our Philly cobblestones. As you can see, we created a very unique driveway and a entry walkway that curves elegantly and leads to the front of the house. But what is really nice about a project like this, besides the great look that it achieves, is that the homeowner will have very little maintenance to do besides sweeping it off with a broom (if that!). It’s kind of like build and forget it and enjoy for years to come. Oh, and let’s not forget the added value a project like this brings to a house.

So enjoy these latest pictures and I hope it gives you some ideas for your next project. If you have any questions or would like a FREE quote for your remodeling project, just give us a call!

Doesn’t this fireplace and the surrounding area look cool? As I keep saying, I love it when customer’s ideas finally come to life and this job was no different. We took a backyard, probably just like yours, and turned it into an area that just makes you want to get out the lawn furniture, start a fire, call your friends over and enjoy! Think you could relax with a fire roaring and stars shining overhead? I bet you could!

As you can see from the pictures, we used a variety of stone products that we have in our arsenal. And you want to know one of the best things about this whole job? At least from what our customer told me, is that his lawn mowing duties have now been cut in half! Well, I guess that means more time spent in his newly created outdoor living space.

As you look through our gallery here, hopefully, it gives you some ideas on what can be done once you put your creative thinking hat on. And once you have an idea, why not give us a call and let us show you how we can bring it to life.

Once again, we took someone’s backyard and turned it into an outdoor showpiece. I wish I could say that the design was my idea, but it wasn’t. The customer had an idea of what he wanted, how he wanted it and we took it from there. As you can see from the pictures, the end result was creating a gorgeous outdoor living area. Before the transformation took place, it was just an average everyday backyard with standard wooden steps at the sliding doors. But not anymore!

The new patio is now large enough to put plenty of tables and chairs and grills and just about whatever else you can think of. The cool thing about his design is that the patio flows into the stunning walled-in area at one corner. People always talk about creating “more living space” inside their homes, but what we are seeing here is people looking to create more living space “outside” of their homes! And I’m betting you’ll agree that this area certainly achieved that.

Maybe you also have some ideas of your own? If you do, then why not give us a call and find out how easy it is to bring your ideas to life. We offer FREE estimates and we are more than glad to answer any questions that you might have. So do yourself a favor, pick up the phone..and CALL US!

Outdoor Patio Part 2 – Let The Sunshine In!

I just had to take some more pictures of this job. The ones you see here are after everything dried out after a few days of rain and after we finished the gorgeous waterfall and after our customer decorated the new outdoor living space! What a difference don’t you think? In fact, when they invited me back to show me, I had to smile because it looked totally different once it was given a decorator (the Mrs.) unique touch. Needless to say, I just had to sit down for a few minutes and absorb just how “homey” everything was. And the sound of the waterfall is so relaxing that words don’t really do it justice.

I know I keep saying it, but it really is something when you see a project completely done and the customer enjoying what they just have invested in. Take a look at the pictures. Think you wouldn’t mind having a cup of coffee or a nice beverage while sitting outside in a “room” like this? I bet you would! And we can help you make it happen! All you need to do is take the first step and give us a call with your idea. We offer FREE consultations and estimates and are more than happy to give you any type of assistance that you may need. So Give Us A Call so I can put Your new outdoor living space into our gallery!
