This fireplace had been used as an open, but with very poor heat output. The customer didn’t like the fireplace surround, which was installed when the house was build and was quite dated. We advised on fitting a Chesney’s Salisbury 4 log burner with a new hearth to cover the footprint of the old hearth. We agreed on lining the fireplace with a rustic brick slip to introduce as nice feature to the very modern room. After fitting the brick slips & plastering the chimney breast we fitted the hearth. The customer chose a river wash granite hearth, floating oak mantle piece in a slightly rustic style with danish oak finish. The finishing touch was the log burner – probably our favourite stove, the Salisbury 4 by Chesney. Another happy customer & installed just in time for Christmas.
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.
