Enhance the Beauty of Your Home With a Natural Stone Fireplace Surround

There is nothing like a fireplace to add warmth and ambiance to a room. You can enhance the beauty of any room by updating your existing wood-burning, gas, or electric fireplace with a natural stone surround. A natural stone surround can breathe new like into an outdated fireplace and will make it easy to match your fireplace to your interior design style.

1. Cobblestone fireplace surround

If you are looking for a charming addition to any room, the old-world character of a cobblestone fireplace surround will not disappoint. Cobblestone will be right at home with a shabby chic or cottage-style decorating theme, and it will bring a coastal home to life. It is a natural fit with the worn and weathered accents found in these styles and its cozy factor will draw you in and make you feel right at home.

2. Slate fireplace surround

If you love decorating with neutral shades, a natural stone slate fireplace surround will be a perfect fit with a home full of gray, beige, or off-white colors. The soothing gray tones of slate make it a natural fit for modern and contemporary design styles where the minimalist look is key. Add a white mantel to create a dramatic and sophisticated look to your fireplace.

3. Limestone fireplace surround

A limestone fireplace surround is a great option for a formal or elegant design style but simplistic enough to be right at home in a modern farmhouse style home. Relaxing and calming, limestone pairs well with black accents for a formal or elegant look. For a modern farmhouse-style home, accent the room with plenty of white furniture and rustic decorative items.

4. Marble fireplace surround

A natural stone marble fireplace surround is a breathtaking addition to any room and is sure to become the focal point whether used in the living room, kitchen, or bedroom. Naturally beautiful on its own, marble will garner attention when used with any decorating style. Add a wooden mantel to complement a rustic style home, a glass mantel for a contemporary look, or eliminate the mantel and go for a floor to ceiling surround and let the marble speak for itself.  

There is nothing like a fireplace to make a room cozy and inviting. Building a natural stone surround for your old fireplace will increase the coziness factor in the room and bring new beauty to your existing fireplace. It is also a great way to remodel your fireplace to match the design theme of your home.
