The Steps of Buying a Fireplace

Here at The Fireplace Studio, we understand that choosing a new fireplace for your home is a rather challenging and time-consuming task. Prior to investing, it’s imperative to do as much research as possible to ensure you find the perfect type of fireplace to suit the style and functional requirements of your property. Take a look at our informative buying guide below for step-by-step instructions on how to go about purchasing a new fireplace from us.

1 Firstly, decide whether you would like to change the fire, surround or both.

2 Research the different types of fireplaces available so you can choose which style you require in your home - our buyers guide and interactive room designer will help you decide.

3 Prepare for your visit to our showroom by bringing along a photograph of your existing fire and fireplace, and measurements of your existing fireplace and chimney breast. Our buyers guide can provide further information to help you prepare.

4 Allow our staff to help you choose the right fireplace for your home and answer any questions to discuss the options available.

5 Select your new fire and fireplace.

6 Arrange a survey with one of our engineers to check we can fit the chosen fireplace.

7 Place the order and book in the installation.

8 Prepare your room for installation by covering up items or removing them from the room where the installation is taking place to protect them from dust.

9 Our Gas Safe registered technicians will then install your new fireplace in line with relevant health and safety regulations and with minimal disruption to your home. We deal with all of the building work, flue work, gas and electrics, and plastering.

10 Post-installation, the correct maintenance and aftercare routine is imperative to keep your fireplace looking its best and staying in top working order. For expert advice on how to clean and care for your fireplace, take a look at our comprehensive cleaning and maintenance article.
