It is official; winter has arrived in New England. With several feet of snow and more on the way, there is no better time of year to snuggle up around your fireplace. Whether spending time with the family or emerged in reading a good book, a warm fireplace is comforting. However, what if we told you that we could take things to the next level? It’s true, with marble and granite, NH fireplaces are impressing now more than ever before. Here is a look.
Granite fireplace surrounds
Often defined for its unique colors, textures, and patterns, granite is a go-to for kitchen countertops. However, granite also provides beneficial features to any fireplace. From subtle beauty to dramatic, contrasting designing, the possibilities are endless with granite.
While the visual aspect is a significant factor when considering a fireplace surround, it’s important to bear in mind the other benefits of granite as well. First and foremost, granite is one of the most budget-friendly options. Thus, a breathtaking, attention demanding, focal point of elegance is more in reach than many ever believed such a piece to be. Granite also has superior heat-resistance and (again) durability features making it nearly indestructible.
Marble fireplace surrounds
Elegance defined. Marble surrounds are one the most classic choices. Unlike granite, marble offers far less in color and pattern choice. With more subtle textures and the neutral palette of white and grays, marble is anything but boring. Instead, a marble surround will still demand the attention of all but provide a taste of traditional ambiance.
While marble maintains the durability and heat-resistance of granite, it does demand more care. If you are willing and able to invest the time in what this stone requires, marble will last you a lifetime.
