Slate veneer paneling is a truly convenient and efficient way to drastically change your home. Whether it is an interior or an exterior wall, these naturally styled wall panels will provide a modern, designer atmosphere in your home.
In the Living Room
Many people considering slate veneers assume it will be used to cover multiple walls, and sometimes this is the case. However, using slate veneers on a portion of one wall creates an interesting, dynamic accent and centerpiece to any living room. A particularly striking placement is around a fireplace, which adds to the rustic feel of a wood-burning fire.
In the Kitchen
Slate veneer has an interesting, rocky texture and comes in a variety of styles and colors, so it is easy to use in the kitchen. Traditionally, it is placed along a full wall, but if you have a countertop which extends out from the wall, an interesting placement for the veneer is along the back of that counter. It breaks up the room and adds a rough feel to the overall kitchen atmosphere.
If you have a kitchen-dining combination room, employing slate veneer to create a clear divider between the two sections of the room is a smart way to give the appearance of separated space.
On the Patio
The wonderful thing about slate veneer is its multi-faceted use. It functions beautifully outside as well as inside, so there is no reason not to add some variety to your exterior patio walls. Covering a portion of a wall, or even steps, adds dimension to your home, but covering all of the walls within a fenced, patio area creates a cohesive space, designed specifically for outdoor activities.
There are many options for employing slate veneer, so do some research and find a look that interests you most. It is a fairly simple process to have applied, and will revitalize any room or outdoor area.
