An updated stone fireplace can transform any space, adding rustic warmth and coziness to a living room or turning a backyard patio into a glowing gathering place for year-round enjoyment.
While heavy brick or thick stone veneer can be labor-intensive and difficult to install, thin stone veneer from Swenson Granite Works provides an excellent alternative for homeowners. Made of 100% natural stone, thin stone veneer achieves the same durability, functionality and beauty of full bed veneers.
