The main thing to consider is the type of stove or heating appliance you intend to have. Once you know the type of heat source you will use, you can then choose a surround which works with the required height and width of the heat source. Ensure the fireplace surround works with your style of your décor, be it classic, contemporary, rustic, modern etc.
Cast iron mantels are very hard-wearing and when installed in the right setting, creates an amazing impact.
Cast iron mantels come with different finishes and tiles can be replace to match the style of the room.
Wood is a very versatile material; Colour tones varies from light tones from birch, to a more dark rich tone from mahogany. Styles can be simple like an elegant shelf, or rustic like beam across the top of a real fire.
Some of our basic MDF solutions are inexpensive and can be simple to install. They can also be painted to match décor or the room.
More and more of our customers are choosing marble or natural stone as their surround of choice as this means they are not trying to match up wood floors, doors & skirting with their fireplace. Natural stone & marble may have veining or different colour shades to what you see on display or in a brochure, your sales consultant can advise you on what variations may be in your material of choice. Natural stone can stain if not cared for properly especially if you are using solid fuel. Many of our customers have opted for a stone surround combined with a cast iron insert and granite hearth for easier maintenance and we only recommend complete limestone or sandstone fireplaces for gas or electric fires
