Fireplace Design Sense
The corner fireplace ideas seen below are all accented with different styles of faux stone; the panels providing an easy and beautiful way to achieve that cozy mountain retreat look.
You might already have a built-in wood burning or gas fireplace accentuating a corner in your home, and would like to cozy it up with the look of stone. Maybe you’re even looking to add a new electric fireplace to your bedroom or living room, and know that the look of stone would add a lot of beauty. You know that adding real stone to the design would be costly and involve a lot of heavy lifting. Cutting such tough material to custom fit the design wouldn't be easy, either.
With stone veneer, it’s easy enough for practically anyone to bring the comforting look of real stone to fireplace designs in corners. This is a reason one of the most popular uses of our panels is for fireplace designs. Lightweight, durable, and easy to install, they make it easy to create this kind of beautiful corner accent.
Mitering the panels so that that they fit nicely into a corner is easy to do, as well. You can watch video on this link about how to miter a faux panel. Cutting the panels to size is easy to do, as well. All you need is a simple wood saw.
