The challenge here was to make a very small fireplace opening look a little more in proportion with the room it was in. We kept the inside of the fireplace as the original bare brickwork to keep the opening as wide as possible. The choice of bricks were a rural cottage blend – not too dissimilar from the interior of the fireplace but a much more aesthetically appealing brick & with the rustic look the customer wanted. The mantlepiece was made from a piece of beech which we danish oiled & the hearth was a lovely riven slate. The wood burner is a Chesney’s Salisbury 4 in black finish. A very nice job with another happy customer.
