Fireplaces can last for a very long time and they provide the user with heat and aesthetic value for the homeowner or to the building in which they are installed. There are so many fireplaces on the market and usually choosing one will depend upon your budget, personal preference and of course the existing design of the house.
Custom fireplaces although they cost more are very much in demand by the public. The Fireplace Factory is the leading manufacturer and installer of bespoke marble fireplaces.

How to choose a design for your fireplace?
The design for your fireplace will be very dependent upon the overall style of your home. For example if your home is Victorian then it would be a good idea to be in keeping and to choose a Victorian design for your fireplace. In contrast if your home is very modern then it would be a good idea to go for a modern fireplace style.

What materials should you choose for your fireplace?
As mentioned marble fireplaces are extremely popular choices for many however, there is a whole range of materials which can be used and which remain popular today:
You do not necessarily have to just choose one material thought because many fireplaces can be made from a combination of different materials whether it is stone, metal, wood or iron. Remember that the materials which you choose will have an effect on the overall cost of the fireplace.
How do I know what size of Fireplace will be most suitable?
When choosing a fireplace you need to ensure that you do not choose one which is going to be large in size and look out of place. Similarly you do not want to choose one which is small in size and just blends into the background and looks washed out.
You need your fireplace to be able to provide enough heat to be adequate in order to heat the room properly. The Fireplace Factory can advise all of our customers through our free in-house surveys which last around 20-30 minutes and it is here where we can decide on what the best size for your home will be so that it doesn’t end up looking out of place.
