Summer is ending, and the cold weather will soon be swarming in. A fireplace is a beautiful way to warm up your home and get cozy with your loved ones. Aesthetically pleasing and beneficial during the colder months; it is an excellent addition to any room in your home. If you’re looking to get a new fireplace installed by us, but can’t decide which material to use, check out these benefits of a marble fireplace.
A Marble Fireplace is Aesthetically Pleasing in Any Room
Notorious for its durability and beauty, marble stone is prevalent in many homes and is used by many homeowners to add value and elegance to any room. Many marble stones are typically found with a white background with grey or pink veining. But different minerals such as sand, clay, and silt create distinctive hues like red, black, pink, and even yellow. The beauty of this stone is that no one piece is the same, adding an elegant and personal touch to any room in your home.
A Marble Fireplace is Heat and Fire Resistant
When deciding on a material for your fireplace, one of the most important factors to consider is its level of resistance against heat and fire. Choosing a material that can withstand heat and fire ensures safety in your home from fires and other dangerous mishaps. Marble stone is incredibly dense and rigid and won’t be affected by high heat temperatures making it a perfect choice of material for your fireplace.
A Marble Fireplace is Easy on Maintenance
Much like any surface in our homes, a marble fireplace needs to be cleaned. Not only for the upkeep of its appearance but to preserve the quality of the material. Dust build-up is quite common amongst fireplaces, and a simple wipe with a cloth each week will prevent discoloration or staining. If food or drinks get spilled on it, use a damp cloth and wipe until any evidence of a spill is gone.
