Marble and Limestone
Stone fireplaces are another popular choice for their array of designs which can be accomplished. Marble and limestone fireplaces are both timeless, hard wearing and solid. Many of our clients have chosen them.
Marble has been a well-respected choice in interiors for many generations. It creates a fireplace which is polished, smooth and luxurious. It’s excellent to use with all kinds of fire and the maintenance is pretty easy. Every piece of marble is unique, with its veining and varying colours and patterns. These traits of the stone make it a popular choice among many home owners.
(Just ensure any spillages are cleaned off quickly. This will prevent any staining of the stone and then finish with a wax polish.)
Limestone is loved for its long lasting quality and the way it weathers over time. Unlike marble, its overall appearance is more of a matt finish although similar ‘veining’ is noticeable.
(Limestone requires a little more upkeep to protect it. It is a softer stone and it absorbs stains more easily. Therefore a pH-neutral stone cleaner should be bought to keep it in good condition.)
