There’s a lot more that goes into your fireplace surrounds and hearths than you might think, and each option has specific details that go along with it. It’s important to do a bit of research on what best suits your needs and be prepared to discuss all the details of your current setup if you have one. If you don’t yet have a fireplace, this is still a great place to start. Imagine turning your living room into a cozy sanctuary away from the world, to enjoy for years to come.
The focal point in many homes today is the fireplace and the surround that you choose can be an on-going element of decorative elegance and functionality for many long years. Appearance options can include traditional or antique elements, contemporary trendiness, or a nice combination of both in one piece. The material your surrounds are made of is as important as the style you choose, and there are plenty.
A hearth is also as decorative as it is functional. Usually made of stone, cement, or brick, it protects against sparks and embers hitting your floor. Not every fireplace needs a hearth, however. Gas fireplaces fall into this category and give you all the benefits of a traditional fireplace without having to worry about wood and ash. However, you can still add a hearth, for a fully functional look, and for decorative purposes, even if it’s not entirely necessary.
Fireplace surrounds and hearths are equally important in the grand scheme of things and can add great value to your home. If you ever decide to sell, you will definitely see a return on your investment in a higher final sale price, overall.
