Benefits of a Fireplace
People install fireplaces for a variety of reasons, some aesthetic, others more practical. A well-designed fireplace can be the perfect focal point for any room in the house. With a variety of design options, including granite, marble, and quartzite; and functional options such as wood burning or gas; your fireplace can be as unique as you are, and custom designed to flow perfectly with the style and feel of your home.
A fireplace is also an economical addition to your living space. Today’s energy costs can be high and including a fireplace into your home’s design can help you to cut back on energy costs. Fireplaces generate a lot of heat, whether gas or wood-burning, which means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your home. Wood is also a cost-efficient and easily renewed energy source. Another benefit is if a winter storm knocks the power out, a fireplace offers light, heat, and a dependable way to cook food.
Types of Fireplaces
A stone fireplace has a stunning aesthetic appeal and no doubt demands the attention of anyone who enters your home. Gaumats International has a wide selection of beautiful stone slabs perfect for designing your ideal custom fireplace.
Granite is one of the most durable stones, making it a great option for a fireplace. It’s a natural stone that can withstand extremely high temperatures, and is resistant to stains, scratching and chipping since it’s such a hard, non-porous surface. Maintaining a granite fireplace is simple and there’s a variety of color options. Using granite for your fireplace is a great way to make a room stand out as elegant and natural.
If you love the look of marble, incorporating it throughout the house is the perfect way to tie everything together. A marble fireplace looks luxurious and is the perfect centerpiece for a living room, dining room, bedroom or kitchen. It can make a once cold room into a cozy and inviting space. Marble is very low-maintenance and can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth if soot or anything else spills. We offer a range of diverse custom marble fireplace colors and styles to fit the style of your living space. Marble is durable, can withstand high temperatures, and it’s easy to clean and maintain.
Quartzite is ideal for surrounding a fireplace. Because of its durability, it’s one of the most popular choices. Quartzite is a natural stone, is strong, is non-porous, and it’s one of the most affordable options. Quartzite bears a close resemblance to marble, but without the cost, so if you’re looking for an elegant, durable, and easy-to-maintain option, quartzite might be the right fit for you. We custom design quartzite fireplaces to meet our clients’ needs.
Cleaning and Maintenance for the Stone Around Your Fireplace
Keeping natural stone looking like new is important, especially when it surrounds a focal point in your home. Most stone is low-maintenance and if cared for properly, will look like new for years to come. Depending on the type of stone you chose, there may be store-bought cleaners to choose from. If you wipe the stone down weekly with a soft, damp towel, it’s not necessary to spend big money on expensive products. Never use harsh chemicals on your stone fireplace. Not only can it damage the stone by staining or dulling it – cleaners with harsh chemicals can be flammable. Also, avoid using an abrasive sponge or wire brushes to clean the stone surrounding your fireplace. A soft towel or washcloth dampened with water and a gentle dish soap should do the trick for daily maintenance.
