Things to Consider

Fireplace design is a personal decision, and there are many factors that should be taken into consideration. Think about your home’s style and decor, and decide if you want your fireplace to have a modern or rustic appeal. Also consider whether you want a homogenous look, or a lot of texture and color variations. You should also consider the level of maintenance each stone requires and what you are willing and able to put up with, as regular cleaning, sealing, and mortar repairs are all part of owning a natural stone fireplace. And last, but not least, keep your budget in mind as the cost of stone varies greatly.

Popular Choices:

Limestone

Many people like limestone because it is versatile, durable, and affordable. Limestone comes in a variety of colors and patterns, making it easy to match your home’s style and decor. Furthermore, limestone can be installed in slabs for a clean, smooth look or stacked for a rustic appeal. Limestone is heat-resistant and durable, but it does require regular sealing to prevent staining over time. 

Sandstone

Sandstone is another great option for a natural stone fireplace surround. If you use your fireplace as a heat source, sandstone is a great addition because it retains heat for a long time. Sandstone is durable, easy to clean, and comes in a range of earthy tones.

Granite

For a contemporary look, granite is the way to go. Like sandstone and limestone, granite is porous and requires sealing to keep it from staining. Granite, though, is easy to clean, durable, and extremely heat-resistant. Granite also comes in a wide variety of shades and patterns, and will retain its natural color for years.
