However, the rather soft and relatively porous nature of limestone makes care for your limestone fireplace very important.

This means you are at liberty to ensure your limestone fireplace blends and not clash with your interior design plans. It is often said that reputable companies who make limestone fireplaces usually have an expert in stone. A master mason makes the fireplaces individually and signs it off which certainly gives the limestone fireplace style and class. Another advantage in the design of a limestone fireplace is that it is easy to fit any chimney with or without any mantel and works with any type of fire.

Limestone Fireplaces Never Go Out of Style

Limestone fireplaces are a great addition to the ambience of a room and are available in a variety of styles, colours and sizes that suit your taste. It might be subject to argument but it is the consensus that limestone fireplaces never go out of style!

The argument is that stone and art have featured side by side for many years and a new dawn has been heralded in which stone is now being used in new and creative ways.
