Hearths and Fireplaces
“Any size or shape of surround and hearth can be manufactured, all individually crafted for you, we never make two the same.“
In our showroom we have a selection of natural granite, marble and limestone on display suitable for a fire surround or hearth. Everything we product is cut and manufactured here on site at our factory to your design and size required. Predominantly granite is used for the hearth due to its hard wearing and durable nature. Marble or limestone tend to be used for the surround as they are lighter in colour and compliment the room decor more than a granite, although this can be used if preferred, the choice is entirely yours.
The 1st step to designing your new fire surround is to find a few designs/ pictures of surrounds that you like. From these we can put the design features you like together to create your bespoke fire surround. We have examples on display and a book of drawings showing previously manufactured fireplaces to give you a few ideas if struggling. From the design and the overall size that you desire for the surround everything is drawn up and then put into production.
An essential part of any fireplace is the hearth whether or not you are having a surround. The most durable and pratical natural stone for this is granite, this can be ‘finished’ in a few ways depending on the look and style of the room. The majority of granite comes to us in a polished finish but this can be removed to give a matt, honed finish or we have the option of an Antique, textured finish in the Absolute Black granite which is popular for hearths.
