Flagstones & Fireplaces: The perfect hearth for your home
A question we are often asked is whether you can place a wood burner directly onto our flagstones and the simple answer is yes; our flagstones make the perfect hearth for your home.
Winter is the perfect time to enjoy your favourite box set or read a good book in front of the fire. A wood burner or open fire can give a room a heart and depending on the materials you choose, it can become a statement and focal point of the room. Using flagstones as a hearth or base for your wood burner or multi-fuel stove can create a simple, clean appearance that offers durability and is easy to maintain. If you prefer a country look that feels more rustic you can lay flagstones in pieces to create your own bespoke design.
A fireplace needs a hearth to ensure it is safe and meets industry regulations, however, it is also an investment, so it’s important to create a timeless look. Our interior flagstones offer you the opportunity to create a traditional, stylish and contemporary feel for your home.
If you want an aged feel you might want to consider The Granary, where the finished floor has no completely straight lines or flat surfaces. The nuance of the finish is subtle but enough to add character to either an old or new home. Our Old Priory flagstones offer a vintage look making it instantly feel like it has always been there.
If you are looking for something a little more contemporary then Highland Grey offers a cool, soft, worn yet elegant look. Perfect for a contemporary project but equally at home in a listed building. If grey is your colour then this flagstone is definitely worth checking out.
If you love an open fire and enjoy being outdoors you might want to consider our exterior flagstones as a base for a firepit or to compliment an outdoor kitchen. Our selection includes those that match our interior flagstones if you are looking to create a seamless flow from inside to outside.
When it comes to choosing a fireplace surround, wood burner or stove there are so many choices available, we recommend shopping around, visiting showrooms as well as looking online as you’ll find some great deals. We also suggest using a qualified fitter, HETAS hold a register of properly trained, competent installers who meet the required standards for installations. They will usually visit to check everything ahead of fitting so can also give you advice on the size of the hearth required.
If you are interested in purchasing our flagstones we recommend using our Free Sample Service, as it allows you to see and feel the textures and colour tones of our flagstones inside your home. We also suggest getting in touch with us if you have any questions - our team have a wealth of knowledge in which they are always happy to share. A visit can be arranged, depending on the size of your project.
