We stock a huge range of fireplaces to suit all interiors & budgets in a range of different materials. Choosing a fireplace can be a bit daunting but we can guide you through the options & designs to get the perfect look for your home. We work with large brands such as Capital Fireplaces, Aurora Fireplaces & GB Mantels to bring you affordable, quality, ready-made fireplaces as well as working with local stone masons, joiners & fabricators for bespoke fireplace designs.
If your project requires a fully bespoke fireplace you can arrange a free design appointment here in our West Bridgford showroom, where we will discuss your requirements & take you through what is possible helping to build the design & practical requirements of your new fireplace.
Fireplaces are generally made in seven main materials; wood, marble, micro marble, stone, granite, slate & cast iron.
Wooden Mantels Wooden Mantels can be solid wood, veneer or painted finished, with Oak & Pine being the most popular solid wood finishes. Solid wood gives a lovely homely feel to any fireplace & offers truly unique character with varying graining & knots. Veneer is a cheaper alternative to solid wood but does not compromise the look, we have both solid wood & veneer fireplaces on display with very few people being able to tell the difference! Painted mantels have grown in popularity recently, with many people going for a mantel painted to match or contrast their wall colour (cool greys are a current favourite). Each wooden mantel we supply is individually made for you, which allows us to have the mantel made to your required size, material & colour. We also offer a colour matching service on our wooden mantels so your new mantel can match existing wooden furniture in your room.
Marble Natural marble can be used in both traditional & modern fireplaces. We offer both ready-made & fully bespoke fireplaces in Natural marble, the most popular being the classic Carrara marble. Each piece of natural marble is unique with varying veining & colour running through. Marble is a fairly tough durable material which is suitable for all types of fires.
Micro Marble Micro Marble is crushed marble set with resins & dyes. Micro marble is a popular choice for people wanting a marble look with a consistent colour. We offer several ranges of ready-made micro marble fireplaces as well as fully bespoke fireplaces. Micro Marble fireplaces tend to be more modern in design & come in white, grey & neutral colours. Micro marble is durable & easy to clean and can be used with gas or electric fires but not with real fires & stoves.
Stone Stone is used in both modern & traditional fireplaces. The most popular stone is limestone, which gives a smooth but matt finish. We offer several ranges of ready-made limestone fireplaces as well as fully bespoke fireplaces. There are two main types of limestone that are used for fireplaces; Portuguese & Aegean. Portuguese limestone is a veined limestone, each fireplace has varying veining & colour tones whereas Aegean is plainer with occasional flecks & fossils. Stone is suitable for all fire types, although not recommended with real fires & stoves as it is porous & can easily mark with ash & debris.
Granite Granite is a popular & durable fireplace material most commonly used for hearths but also used for complete fireplaces. All granite is individually made for us by our Nottinghamshire supplier. Granite can be polished giving a shiny finish or honed giving a more matt appearance. Granite is suitable for all fire types & is a perfect choice for use with an open fire or stove due to its durability.
Slate Like granite, slate is a popular & durable material most commonly used for hearths & mantels. Slate can be smooth in texture or riven, giving a lovely natural finish. All our slate hearths & fireplaces are individually made. Slate is suitable for all fire types & is a popular choice for use with an open fire or stove because it does not mark easily with ash or debris. However, slate is a soft material & can easily be scratched which can make granite the better choice.
Cast Iron Cast iron fireplaces are the perfect choice for a traditional property. Our range of cast iron fireplaces offers Georgian, Victorian & Edwardian styles. Cast iron fireplaces come in the option of matt black, highlight & full polished. Our cast iron fireplaces come with the choice of an open fire, gas fire or decorative only. Cast iron as decorative fireplaces for bedrooms & dining rooms are very popular, as well as for working fireplaces in main reception rooms.
The hearth is the base of the fireplace, it can be made in many different materials, usually granite, slate, stone or tiles.
