As we continue to spend more time at home, now is the perfect opportunity to begin planning and executing the home projects you have thought about doing for far too long! To help you and your family enjoy your property as much as possible, take a moment to consider some exterior home projects that will enhance your time outdoors and make your home more inviting overall. 

It’s safe to say that Horizon Stone products will help produce beautiful and long-lasting results for your outdoor renovations. Along with instant attractive appeal, these stone design solutions are easy to install and maintain for years. Our Horizon Stone Houzz page is full of incredible inspiration for your entire home and a great place to start your brainstorming process, but we have rounded up a few of our favorite exterior home design trends as well!

Relaxing Outdoor Fireplaces – If you feel like you’ve been stuck inside all day long, consider renovating an outdoor area where you can relax with the family and enjoy the cool night air. Nothing will create comfort like a dream outdoor fireplace made from beautiful stone. Especially with the warmer season upon us, you can create a relaxing space that you can enjoy right away, and add extra warmth when needed as the months get colder. We are head over heels for this fireplace (below) crafted from our 19th Century Series in color Hermitage!

Stunning Stone Stairs – Whether your exterior stairways are located in the front of the property, in the backyard, or both, add a touch of timeless craftsmanship by remodeling them with gorgeous stone. Horizon Stone bull-nose stair treads make it easy to build long-lasting, perfectly uniform stairs in six gorgeous shades. This front entranceway (below) uses our Buckskin step tread to make an impeccable style statement. Talk about instant curb appeal!

Create Custom Columns – Looking for a way to make the wooden posts that support your home stand out? Consider building stone columns around the bases for an upgraded look that provides visual interest! When combined with a rich stain or fresh coat of white paint to the wood, your finished pillars will undeniably elevate the entire space. Top off your columns with our chiseled caps and use our flat caps as a base. Just look at how these custom columns (below) made with 19th Century Series stone in Harbor Bluff complete this front porch with a distinct cozy elegance. 

Trim Light Fixtures & Outlets

As you design your exterior spaces and patios to your specific stone taste and preferences, don’t forget to trim your electrical outlets and lighting fixtures with Horizon Stone accents. Our hand-crafted and hand-colored pieces replicate natural stone authentically and add the savvy finishing touches to your outdoor aesthetic. The details make all the difference in home design, and these accessories (below) add fashion to function!
