Fireplaces


Devon Fireplace Specialists offer advice on the array of fireplace design options available today.

Fireplaces are a great way to add value to your home. Not only do they add ambience, but they can also function as an efficient source of heat.

You need to decide why you want a fireplace before you look for a suitable match. Do you want a fireplace for its aesthetic appearance or for its warmth? Some products are simply decorative, while others are extremely efficient, as well as beautiful to watch.
You also need to consider your spending budget as price is always a consideration with most people. Each fireplace varies in price and fuel prices are a factor to consider in and around the local Devon area.

Tile, marble, brick, wood, stone, and concrete are all good candidates for fireplace materials, and mixing them can add to your options. A stone hearth with a wooden mantelpiece is comforting and familiar, for example, while a masonry fireplace with a marble surround is formal and rich. Any of our Devon Fireplace Specialists will be able to advise you on the best option for your home.

Brick fireplaces
Bricks are a traditional choice for fireplaces designs. Beautiful, functional and easy to replace, bricks add a welcoming, old-fashioned feel to a room. Aging brick fireplaces can be spruced up with a coat of paint. While any bricks can be used for the surround, only firebricks should be used in the firebox.

Marble and Granite fireplaces
Devon is rich with fantastic natural stone and many highly experienced stone importers for your perfect fireplace. Granite and marble are popular materials used in today's fireplaces designs. Granite fireplaces are handsome, durable and easy to clean. There are a number of different colours of granite fireplace designs to coordinate with a room's décor. Marble fireplaces are elegant and lovely and can add a sophisticated touch to a home. Some marble fireplaces are elaborately carved with beautiful designs.

Tile fireplaces
Tiled fireplaces designs can add a splash of fun and colour to the fireplace. The tiles can cover the surround of the fireplace and can be chosen in a variety of designs. For a romantic room in your Devon home you might choose tiles featuring pretty floral patterns, while tiles with brightly coloured geometric shapes might better suit a contemporary style room. Tile can also be used to cover the brick and give a new look to an older mantel that is past its prime.

Remember, if you are fitting or removing a gas fire from a fireplace it MUST be carried out by a CORGI registered engineer.

Fireplaces in period properties


Often one of the most appealing features in a period property is the fireplace. This may be due to the fact that it can play a key role in helping to establish the character and style of a room. If your house isn't lucky enough to still have the original fireplace or perhaps they have been altered inappropriately over the years, then why not reinstate a sympathetic reproduction?

It is important to make sure that you chose the correct style for your home and therefore pays to do your research. There are simple yet elegant fireplace surrounds in both stone and wood were popular with the Georgians, however towards the end of the eighteenth century more ornate versions started to emerge. The Victorians loved to rework original designs and styles, so a nineteenth century property would suit a bold fire surround in stones, marble, painted wood with elaborate carving designs.


This period also saw cast iron gates and mantels emerging and fire places of the arts and crafts and Art Nouveau periods were commonly made entirely from this material. They often featured elegant tiles inserts and motifs.
