Choosing the Size of your Fireplace
When it comes to size, there are a few things to consider:
To get the proportions of the fireplace right, you will need to look at the overall size of the room, ceiling height and whether the fireplace is being fitted on a flat wall or onto a chimney breast.
If the fireplace is going on a chimney breast then it’s crucial you measure the width as a fireplace is more aesthetically pleasing if it does not overhang the corners.
If you are looking to purchase a fireplace of a similar size to your existing surround, the most important measurements are the overall height, width and the depth of your hearth.
