Just like any form of style, modernity has its favorite material that can help the stands out. Two of such elements are stone and wood. They both have their texture, simple appearance, natural appeal and sophisticated charm. This is the main reason why, when we walk along the street,  we try to  find the building the showcase the predilection for this vanguard. Some houses even have touchstones or wood on the floor, ceilings on the walls and other places. The ultimate goal is not to become absent. 

Now, just imagine a range of designs that merge these two elements and flaunt them at the facade of your house. They are surely going to be impressive, aren't they? Today, we have planned to admire 13 different entrances of home that chose to make notes of wood and stone to make a modern union that in unmatched and unbeatable!

1.Where Stone and Where Woods?

It is important to consider where you have to place the wood and stone, as at the end of the day, they have to accompany each other. If they accompany well, you better are going to get the benefits of both. For instance, it would be wrong to place the woods where it will get wet often. Here the stone appears to be stronger in these circumstances.

2.Both the Facade

Both stone and wood are materials that are natural and give us the opportunity to use them as a coating. We need not to necessarily build the structure of our home via them to convoke decoration. In short, there is no excuse not to have the two together in a facade.

3.In Particular Object

Another way to make wood and stone coexist is to choose the right spot for every element. For example, in this home, the door is made out of pure woods while stone has been used in livelihood and overlooks a wall. It can be set loose above with all its sophistication in the garden or outdoor planter.

4.Play with Heights and Levels

You can also take and use the different heights of the facade as the guiding member to the place both the element, wood, and stone. The example we have shown above is perfect and shows that the sights of wood and stone at greater resistance.
