A Stone Fireplace Adds Natural Beauty to Any Room

Stone-Fireplace-Bellevue-WAThe purpose of a fireplace is to create a safe, warm, and inviting environment in your room. A stone fireplace is a great and effective way to hearken to unspoken cultural ideals and beautify your home. Really, any fireplace can do that – be it a brick fireplace or a natural stone fireplace.

Refinishing a fireplace with fireplace stone, building a new brick fireplace, or cleaning up your stone fireplace can make your home feel as if it's a completely new place. An investment in a stone fireplace:

• Adds a rugged and wild look to your room
• Warms up faster and stays warm longer
• Doesn't get dangerously hot
• Can be installed into any appropriate room

Knowing the different fireplace stone options can be helpful in deciding what kind of stone fireplace you really want. A brick fireplace is also a good option when choosing fireplace stone, because it's a subtler form of a stone fireplace.

Fireplace Stone Options for the Home and Business Owner

Fireplace-Stone-Bellevue-WAThere are as many different types of fireplace stone as there are quarries on earth. Cobblestone, dry stack, granite, slate, sandstone—you can have a stone fireplace in almost any shade and texture.

And, if true fireplace stone is too expensive or structurally difficult, you can always get faux fireplace stone or just put in a brick fireplace.

Here are some suggestions for choosing fireplace stone for your stone fireplace:

• Look at the sample of the stone fireplace, not just the fireplace stone
• Choose your color wisely – see the fireplace stone for yourself
• Don't DIY – let a practiced mason craft an art piece for you

A less expensive fireplace stone is brick. A brick fireplace is as classic and American as a stone fireplace is modern and beautiful.

Brick Fireplace Installation - Mantels and Fireplace Surrounds

Brick-Fireplace-Bellevue-WAIf you're considering tearing off the bricks from your brick fireplace to make way for a stone fireplace, think again. A brick fireplace comes in more than just the traditional red variety, and can be a simpler alternative to a stone fireplace.
