How to Mix and Match your Fireplace

Posted on: 6th May 2016

If you are looking to get the perfect fireplace to suit your home, there is nothing stopping you from mixing and matching the parts available to you to create the right look and feel to fit in with your home’s decor. The right colour and material can really lift a room and improve its overall aesthetic, whilst picking the right type of fireplace for your requirements and your home’s energy source could be vital in keeping your home well insulated and cost efficient.

Here, we run through the different elements of the traditional fireplace, and provide some ideas on how you can create an attractive and practical fireplace for your home through mixing and matching these elements.


What is it?

The heart of a fireplace is the base upon which all the other components of your fireplace will sit.

What varieties are there?

The base can be made of granite, slate or using tiling to create a smart aesthetic whilst providing a practical material on which to build a fireplace.


What is it?

The insert is the part in which the fire will reside and where the fire will actually burn. It is here that homeowners must decide whether they want a gas, electric, solid fuel or decorative fire.

What varieties are there?

It is not only up to you whether you want the insert to be tiled or arched, but customers also must decide between highlighter, half polished or full polished black finishes.


What is it?

Perhaps the most decorative part of the fireplace, the surround is the element where people can really pick and choose between different materials and colours. The surround, as its name suggests, simply surrounds the insert and fire itself.

What varieties are there?

There are a huge variety of finishes and options available, including woods and marbles alongside other materials, different veneers and finishes and even different colours of tiling. With all this choice, customers can really suit their room’s decor down to the ground with their choice.

Fireplaces really are a delightful addition to any home, old or new, so treat yours with the care and attention it deserves and create a beautiful focal point within a room at your home.
