Stone Hearths are available in granite, travertine, sandstone and marble from your local stone suppliers. They can be polished or mat and straight cut or bevelled. Stone always adds a touch of class to any fireplace.
Left: A bevelled or shaped edge suites a traditional style.
Right: The straight cut and polished edge has a more modern feel.
Sandstone is available in many natural colours from stone suppliers.
These stone hearths will add elegance and complete the picture for any fireplace installation. Wood burning fires should have a hearth to conform to standard but a gas fire doesn't necessarily have to have one. With gas fires it's all about the look.
Black polished granite is a favorite choice from your local stone supplier.
