We can all hope we’re over the worst of the winter, and that spring, and eventually summer, are on their way. So you may think it’s no time to be thinking about fitting a real fireplace. But, actually, the warmer months are the ideal time of year for this job. Then you can look forward to enjoying real fires come the autumn.
Equally, summer may well be at least partly taken up by holidays. So it’s not too early to start thinking about planning a fireplace, whether you’re remodelling your home or have moved to a new property.
A marble fireplace in particular offers numerous benefits, some of which we list below – no wonder it’s been used for so long!
Few materials can top marble for its elegant, luxurious appearance. So it’s understandably a popular choice in homes and other settings. It’s sophisticated yet cosy, so can help create a stunning focal point in any room.
Easily maintained and cleaned
A quick weekly wipe with a damp cloth will keep your marble workplace looking its best and stop dust and grease from building up. It’s true that it can stain, and any spillages need wiping up swiftly. But, generally speaking, and assuming you don’t have lots of pets or a particularly busy or young household, caring for this natural stone is straightforward.
Heat and flame-resistant
As a dense, hard stone, marble resists heat. So it’s the perfect material for creating the ideal fireplace. And, by the way, as well as resisting heat and fire, this stone is also water-resistant.
Marble is an incredibly diverse material, giving you numerous options as to how you use it. Take your pick from a broad range of fireplace styles, and colours, to lend your room a timeless beauty. That’s the case whatever the style of your home and its interior décor.
It’s a fact that marble lasts an extremely long time. Fit a fireplace in this natural stone and you won’t be replacing it anytime soon.
