Marble for Hearths and Fire Surrounds

cropped crema marfil marble supreme with black granite

At GON Granite & Marble, we supply beautiful marble slabs for creating stylish fire surrounds, hearths and plinths. It might be for a restoration project involving a period fireplace in a grand entrance hall, or you could be updating a modern living room to a contemporary look. Whatever your requirements, talk to us about what it is you're looking for in a marble fireplace. Call in to our showroom to see a wide range of marble samples which reflect the high quality natural marble available, 'Bianco Lasa Corelano Fantastico' is typical of our range of white marble with muted tones of grey, or perhaps the striking effect of 'Black & Gold' natural marble is more suited to the overall design features of your home. From Spain, 'Crema Marfil' marble brings sophistication to a simple fire place, with its soft creamy colour, interspersed with pale brown veining. Conversely, 'Rosa Tea', as shown in the side panel, is quarried in Iran, and is a marble which exudes high regency and late 19th century style alike. Shades of pink vary from delicate blush and dusky, powdery hues, to resplendent coral pinks, and even deeper russets and auburn shades; all of which are characteristics of this type of natural stone marble.

Bespoke solid stone marble templating, cutting and finishing.

All our marble is cut to size in our workshop in North Wales, and then polished and hand finished to exacting standards by our team of craftsmen, ensuring a quality product that will give a lifetime of satisfaction. Fire back panels are sold, ideally, in pairs. This allows for expansion and limits the risk of cracking elsewhere due to extreme heat. All the pieces required for the fire surround i.e. the back and side panels, inserts, slips, hearth stones, plinths and mantels, are cut from the same slab of marble, ensuring a match and continuation of the colour and natural patterning of the stone.

We install new fire surrounds complete with mantle and hearth top. Main picture: Crema Marfil marble is a perfect foil for contrasting black granite back panels and plinth.
