Here is a selection of completed work from Ansell Chimneys.
So you have made a decision on the type of solid fuel stove you want, but you are still wondering what type of surround you want to set it off with.
There are quite a few options and they can look pretty amazing, but a brick or stone fire surround really does set off a solid fuel stove perfectly.
Stone fireplace surrounds always seem to add a wonderfully rustic charm to any setting, whether it happens to be an old or modern interior. Stone adds texture and absorbs some heat when the fire is on. The stones help to radiate the heat out into the room, warming up the interior much faster and keeping it much warmer far longer. It can surround your fireplace in so many different ways and styles offering you such a wide range of looks and finishes.
From a simple rustic approach concentrating the stone close to the fire source or over a wider area to make a genuine feature in its own right. Matural stone can literally transform any home into a real show piece.
As a more traditional fireplace surround, the humble brick has remained a firm favourite with home owners for centuries. We tend to envisage rustic looking red bricks surrounding the fire place like we have all seen in many a country pub, however they can also be used in the more modern interiors to create a really stylish appearance.
Bricks are available in so many different colours, textures and even sizes and can be pointed in different patterns to create a variety of looks that all add texture and warmth to any home space.
Even the pointing can be a feature in its own right. Different coloured pigments added to the pointing mortar can transform the finished article, making your brick fire surround as individual as you are.
From traditional red brick country cottage look to the sharp clean lines of light coloured ultra modern looking bricks that lend themselves to that bang up to date look, the choice really is yours.
