Overland Park, Kansas Custom Fireplaces
A well-built fireplace not only pulls a room together, it’s multi-functional with multiple benefits. Energy costs can be high, especially during extreme weather, but using a fireplace helps to cut those high energy costs. A fireplace is a great generator of heat and gas bills are typically less than electric bills. Choosing a wood-burning fireplace also means your HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your home. If the power goes out, a fireplace continues to warm your home, offer light, and it’s a great source for cooking food.
The aesthetic appeal is usually another reason people choose to install or upgrade a fireplace. With so many options like granite, marble, or quartzite, a fireplace can bring any room in the house together, highlight other custom fixtures throughout the house, or make a room stand out. Your fireplace can be as unique as you are, and custom designed to flow perfectly with the style and feel of your home. Adding a fireplace automatically raises the value of your home and it’s often a major selling point for buyers.
Types of Fireplaces
A stone fireplace can make any room stand out and 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 a beautiful, natural stone that is durable and can withstand extremely high temperatures, which makes it an ideal choice for a fireplace. Granite is also non-porous, so it’s resistant to stains, chipping, and scratching. Because granite is a low-maintenance stone, using it for your fireplace is a great way to make a room stand out as elegant and natural.
Marble is a classic and luxurious stone that can be incorporated throughout a home. The aesthetic appeal of marble is that it automatically draws the eye and it looks elegant, making it the perfect centerpiece for a living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom. Most marble is considered low-maintenance and can be cleaned with a soft, damp cloth if soot or anything else spills. We offer a wide range of diverse custom marble fireplace colors and styles to fit the style of your living space. Because it’s durable, marble can withstand high temperatures, and it’s easy to clean and maintain.
Quartzite is one of the most popular choices for custom fireplaces because of its look, durability, and price. Because quartzite is a natural stone, it’s very strong, durable, and non-porous, meaning it’s scratch- and stain-resistant. Quartzite is ideal for surrounding a fireplace. It 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 Maintaining the Stone Around Your Fireplace
Keeping your new fireplace clean is important. A dirty fireplace can not only be a fire hazard, it just looks bad when it’s the centerpiece to a room. Depending on the type of stone you choose, there may be store-bought cleaners available to help maintain your fireplace, but it’s crucial to always make sure it’s not flammable. Most stones can be cleaned with a soft, damp towel saturated in water and a small bit of dish soap. 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.
