A natural stone fireplace adds so much value to a home. It warms the house, serves as an aesthetically pleasing enhancement, and natural stone slabs are highly durable. In addition, you can enjoy creating “warm” memories with family and friends around the fireplace. An indoor fireplace is as valuable as an outdoor element. Imagine the movie nights and laughter. A natural stone fireplace adds charm and character to any home. A beautiful fireplace is a perfect addition to any Maryland home due to Maryland’s weather being unpredictable. You never know when you’ll need heat, and when you don’t, you can still look forward to your natural stone fireplace being a stunning centerpiece. Here are three steps to installing a natural stone fireplace.
Choose the Stone for Your Natural Stone Fireplace
For our custom fireplace surrounds, we offer slate and marble. Whether you desire a rustic or elegant appeal, slate is versatile. Slate is heat-resistant and comes in various eye-capturing colors and design options.
Marble is a classic choice if you prefer an ornate and refined style. Each marble slab has a different appeal to its unique veining. Whatever material you choose, we suggest choosing a design that complements any other stone used throughout your home, whether a backsplash or kitchen island.
Choose the Design
Your fireplace’s design will depend on your room’s layout. You’ll also need to consider your town’s building codes and the type of fireplace you prefer, such as gas, wood, or electric.
