PostSubject: What are the Different Options for Natural Stone Fireplaces?   Wed Jun 14, 2017 12:59 am

Fireplaces constructed from natural stone can be installed both indoors and outdoors. All types of natural stone can be used for either location. Appearance, resistance to heat and smoke, and durability are the key factors when choosing natural stone for a fireplace.

Granite is one of the most versatile natural stones available and is used for fireplaces, counters, and even flooring. It is a popular choice for fireplaces due to its amazing durability, scratch resistant finishes, and high heat tolerance. This natural stone is also well known for its non-staining surface, making it a popular choice for families with young children. Granite can be quarried in a variety of different colors helping to ensure that the right match is found for just about any decor.

Another group of natural stones used in creating unique fireplaces are onyx and marble. These two stones are different in composition, but both lend a very formal look to a fireplace. Both marble and onyx are susceptible to scratches and will break and chip more easily than granite, and should not be used for fireplaces constructed in an area prone to wear and tear. Contrary to popular assumptions, both marble and onyx are available in a wide variety of colors.
