Ways to Use Exterior Faux Stone Column Wraps
Faux stone columns offer design options that just don't exist with the real thing. This is because of the hollow space inside the column itself. This space gives you countless options for running electrics, plumbing, and other gear inside.
You can easily add:
- Recessed lighting
- Recessed speakers
- Water features
- Electrical outlets
Electric outlets are a common favorite, as access to power in the garden or yard can be annoying and impractical. Our exterior faux stone column wraps enable you to seamlessly provide an outlet without having to run an unsightly extension cord.
How Faux Stone Column Wraps Work
The columns are made from high-density molded polyurethane foam, so it's easy to cut holes for speakers or lights. This gives endless possibilities! And the best part? Even with additional electrical or mechanical enhancements, faux columns still look just as good as columns made of real stone.
