If your fireplace looks outdated, it can negatively impact the entire style of the room. If you want to design a modern, durable and impressive update for your fireplace, consider adding a modern marble fireplace surround by Rock Tops Fabrication. While marble is already quite popular for countertops and striking tabletops, marble can also add an impressive appearance to your living room. The fireplace is the centerpiece of your room, so investing in a beautiful surround can impact the entire space. Additionally, renovating the fireplace creates a significant impact at a much lower cost than renovating the floor or other large areas. If you aren’t yet convinced of the benefit of a marble fireplace, read on to consider the top five benefits of this installation.
Marble is Resistant to Fire and Water
Marble is a durable material that is resistant to heat, fire, and water. This makes a modern marble fireplace a perfect option. You don’t need to worry about the strength of your fire, and you can enjoy a glass of wine near the fireplace without worrying about spill damage.
Marble is Easy to Clean
Everyone prefers home materials that are easy to clean and maintain. When taking care of your fireplace, this means that cleaning away soot and ashes is especially easy. This means that you can enjoy a beautiful marble fireplace without putting large amounts of time or money into cleaning.
Marble Comes in a Variety of Designs
Marble is a natural stone that comes in a variety of colors, with a wide range of veining. The “veins” or lines visible on marble can be big and dramatic or small and subtle. This variety makes finding the marble design suitable for your living room much more manageable.
Marble is Long-Lasting
Marble is a natural, hard stone that is extremely long-lasting. This makes a modern marble fireplace an excellent investment for homeowners who don’t want to update their fireplace again in the future. Your marble will stay beautiful and unique through years of use.
Marble Suits a Variety of Styles
No matter what your chosen fireplace style is, marble can fit. You can go floor to ceiling with a thin mantel or no mantel at all for a modern look. You can add a natural wood mantel for a warmer or less formal room. Marble is versatile enough to match the style of your room and your personal taste.
