Stone has played a role in traditional homes in New England since colonial times. While most colonial American homes were built primarily from wood, stone was a vital element used in these early homes. Stone chimneys were a major focal point and fireplaces were used for heating as well as cooking.
As the country grew in stature and affluence, stone began to play a role in interior design. Wealthy families could import and incorporate marble, slate, and brick into floors, mantle pieces, and exposed stone walls. Today, stone is an affordable design element with both indoor and outdoor use being common.
Natural stone has moved into the home from the more traditional use in patios and driveways. Today, natural stone veneers allow homeowners to incorporate stone into their home’s interior design easily and affordably. In fact, stone veneers are at home in any room of the house.
