Reasons to choose a limestone fireplace surround
Posted on: 1st November 2018
Deciding on your favourite fireplace is hard enough, so it’s more than normal to feel stuck for ideas when it comes to choosing fireplace surrounds and fireplace mantles. With such an extensive range of products to go through, it can be difficult to know what’s the most durable, stylish and suitable for your home. The Rotherham Fireplace Centre are here to offer some simple advice to help you make your decision. This article will offer you insight into our most popular, multi-faceted material, limestone.
Limestone fireplace surrounds are elegant and warm
Limestone fireplace surrounds and mantels provide homes with a warm aesthetic and an exemplary finish. The craftsmanship of a limestone fireplace is second-to-none because this material can be beautifully carved to complement your home, which makes it easy when finding a unique design. If it’s sheer decadence you’re looking for, limestone is the perfect material for you as other materials – such as marble – are more minimalist, with straight lines and simplicity.
Limestone fireplace surrounds are natural and earthy
For homes that embrace natural, earthy textures and designs, limestone fireplace surrounds are the perfect choice. Limestone is an effective way to brighten up a room and add softer, natural curves. Not to mention, limestone is an organic sedimentary rock that forms over time, comprised of calcium carbonate or dolomite. It can be used for a multitude of purposes due to being hard-wearing, and can be easily crafted for various uses.
Limestone fireplace surrounds and mantels are high quality and affordable
Believe it or not, limestone fireplace surrounds and mantels are generally affordable and meet most budgets, which means you can get seamless quality at a reasonable price. The more expensive limestone surrounds are those that are made to be bespoke. That said, anything tailored to your tastes specifically will always incur more costs. The nice thing about bespoke limestone fireplace surrounds is that they’re made from a quality, and relatively low-cost, material, which means a bespoke limestone fireplace surround is still likely to fit within your budget.
Limestone fireplace surrounds and mantels are contemporary and on-trend
This understated material is increasingly popular because many homeowners are coming to realise the benefits of limestone. Limestone offers a contemporary feel and because of its simplicity and ability to morph into your desired design it is the must-have, on-trend material.
Fireplaces are truly the heart of the home because they provide warmth in a place where we live amongst friends and family. A fire adds great charisma and a cosy, comfortable place to be in front of and enjoy throughout the cold winter months.
