Stone Fire Places: Its Past and Present
When it comes to having your home interior area ooze with a rustic appeal, there is hardly any match for stone fire places. These exquisite spaces, although celebrated through centuries for their immense ability to provide warmth during the chilly winter months, have become obsolete now. Save for a few houses, where stone fire places are mere objects of home décor, these beautiful spaces have no existence whatsoever.
However, flipping through the pages of history it appears that fire places made from stone have ruled the roost in every age. During the Elizabethan or Victorian era, especially, fire places were considered a mark of grandeur. Back in that time, it would be difficult to find a single up market house which did not have one.
As a matter of fact, stone fire places were seen as the best idea to generate heat and warmth and block the cold winter winds out. They have found place in the writings of famous poets. Sitting by the fire place’s side with a book in hand would be the ultimate luxury experience. House parties back in the mid nineteenth century would mean huddling together in a group around the fire place and enjoying a glass of drink or two. Countless paintings depicting the stone fire places have immense importance inside the household can be seen at museums or palaces. Sadly though, as technology progressed, stone fire places started falling out of fashion, so much so that modern homeowners do not even consider having one. But now, these objects of grandeur are lost in the pages of history.
There is hardly any dearth of big mansions or houses today. However, accommodating an entire stone fire place would mean letting go of interior space. This is what makes the prospect of owning a fire place even more detestable to modern homeowners. However, if you have money to spend and some room to spare, then the stone wall made varieties are highly recommended. If you wish to have these beauties installed at your residence, contact a good construction expert.
