When most people think about incorporating faux wall paneling into a design project, they tend to think strictly about indoor uses. This would be a terrible oversight, as there are many ways faux wall paneling can be used for an exterior purpose.

Faux is a great addition to exterior walls because of the high quality polyurethane material they are made from. The material is impervious to moisture, which makes them resistant to mold, mildew, and rot.  They are designed to withstand all types of weather, both hot and cold. The panels are also UV resistant, so you don’t have to worry about them fading in the sun.


So, since you know faux wall panels work great outdoors, how exactly can you use them?  There are a number of exterior applications that our customers are implementing all the time.  Here are some of the most popular:


  1. Fence Posts. Adding faux stone or faux brick paneling to your fence to create posts is a great way to break up the monotony of all wood in the fence design. The fence post not only adds aesthetic appeal, but also adds texture and dimension.  They are easy to apply on your own, and only require a few standard tools to do so.
  2. Entry Gate. A wonderful way to complete the look of your home and really add to your curb appeal is by placing an entry gate at the end of your driveway. This works especially well for homes with long driveways as well as a large amount of property.  It adds a regal feel, and can be done without using authentic stone, brick, or wood.
  3. Exterior Paneling. Adding faux brick, stone or wood to the exterior of your home’s paneling will add dimension and character. There is nothing more charming than a little brick house.  You can create this look for a fraction of the price and in a fraction of the time by using Faux Direct’s faux wall paneling.
  4. Backyard Design. There are several ways you can incorporate faux wall paneling into your backyard design. Many people add faux stone around their pool or create a waterfall.  Adding a faux wood shower is a unique touch, as well as a faux brick fire pit. The most popular project is creating an outdoor kitchen using any of our paneling options. Every project is easy to attain, fun to accomplish as it is DIY friendly, and will last for years to come.
