Fire surrounds can instantly update the look of your fireplace and the look of your room without the expense of replacing the whole fire itself. Investing in quality fire surrounds will help to add the wow factor to your fireplace and create a stunning focal point in your room. Often when people move to a new property they won’t like the existing fireplace that the previous owners choose and will want to look at new fire surrounds to change it to their taste. There is such a vast range of fire place surrounds available to choose from that most people will easily find one that they love.

Fire place surrounds come in many different shapes, sizes and materials. Wooden fire surrounds such as oak, walnut, mahogany, beech, pine and maple are all excellent choices as well as marble and granite which can be more expensive than wooden ones but very striking. Most fire surrounds will be suitable for a range of different fires such as gas fires, electric fires, stoves and open fires. If you’re looking for high quality fireplaces that will last for years to come then you should choose solid wood, granite or marble rather than MDF. MDF fire surrounds are a popular choice due to their cost but they are not as durable as solid wood.

If you have an open fire then you should opt for marble or granite as this is fire resistant and wont mark if your fire spits out any wood. Many people will opt for fire place surrounds that have a tiled hearth area as this is another great solution for protecting your fire surrounds from fire damage. Wooden fire surrounds can be stained or varnished to match the rest of your interior and this is why solid wood has always been a popular choice for creating fire place surrounds.
