Whether you opt for natural or manufactured product, even a little bit of stone adds a lot of interest to a home exterior. There are so many different types of stone (granite, limestone, river rock, cobble, sandstone, etc.) that the possibilities for creative stone home design are nearly endless. European styles (including Mediterranean and Italianate homes) often showcase stone, though many newer Craftsman-inspired designs also incorporate it for earthy appeal. A bit of stone can also add a rustic vibe to a mountain vacation home or a rugged lakefront getaway. Whatever you choose, your house will rock!
