Benefits of Bespoke Fireplaces

Marble surround bespoke fireplacesMany of us have spent hours trawling through shops and products online trying to find that perfect piece of furniture which will transform the look of our home, only to find it doesn’t fit properly. When it comes to fireplaces, a bespoke design will prevent any hassle when it comes to measuring and fitting, as it is tailored perfectly to your home.

As a fireplace is typically the focal feature in a room, chances are you will want a unique design which will suit the style and measurements of your room, as well as your required heat output. This article will serve to explain the benefits of bespoke fireplaces and which design options are available to you.

What are bespoke fireplaces?

Wood surround bespoke fireplacesDelivering on both functionality and style, fires and fireplaces are more than just a way of heating homes – they must also complement the decor, size and shape of the room. No matter which colour, size or finish you require, bespoke fireplaces are custom-made to fit both traditional and modern designs.

How do I know whether I need a bespoke fireplace?

The versatility of bespoke fireplaces makes them perfectly suited for homes with awkwardly shaped rooms or chimney breasts, as they cater for any gaps or obstructions. Companies which offer a made-to-measure service will ensure your fireplace is integrated into the rest of the room seamlessly, so you don’t need to worry about your fireplace looking messy or unfinished.

Alternatively, you may have your own concept in mind for the look of your fireplace, in which case a bespoke design is the most appropriate option. Whether you have very specific design ideas or unconventional tastes, bespoke fireplaces give you the freedom to get inspired and find the perfect style for your home. From the initial idea through to completion of the project, careful consideration must be paid to every step of the process.

Nature-inspired interior design has remained a consistent trend over the years, with the aim of bringing the beauty of the outdoors in. When it comes to fireplace surrounds, both natural stone and wood are popular choices as they offer distinctive textures and incredible durability for a truly unique feature.

Favoured for their elegant, polished look, marble surrounds instantly inject a sense of luxury for the perfect finishing touch in both modern and traditional homes.

Here at The Fireplace Studio, our bespoke service allows you to choose the exact size, colour and finish of your fireplace. Ideally suited for gas or electric fires, we provide:

  • Wood surrounds: available in any finish and size, with the option of a colour matching service in a gloss or matte finishes
  • Marble surrounds: available in a variety of colours and sizes
  • Natural stone: available in a range of finishes and sizes

Our made-to-measure service accommodates for any oddly-shaped rooms or chimneys, integrating the fireplace into your room seamlessly.

  • C Lewis

    We are very impressed with the service we have received from The Fireplace Studio. Ashley in the showroom was very patient and helpful, and his advice...was invaluable. He explained that the fire we had picked out was too big and hot for our room, and sold us one that was about a third of the price. He could so easily have taken a great deal of money off us, but wouldn't. It was fitted today, and it looks beautiful. The fitters were punctual, polite, and made as little mess as possible.

    This was the sixth fireplace showroom visited, and we found it to be an excellent company in every aspect - professional, highly competent, readily pr...oviding comprehensive quotations whilst in their showroom for various options, and sticking to the price and installation date when the order was placed. The calibre, skill and craftsmanship of the installation team were all exemplary.

    I had a DRU Gas Fire installed; the staff were very professional, from showroom to final installation. Thank you Michelle, Andy, Keegan, Dean and Adam.... They instilled confidence that they knew the product and did a professional installation. I am most happy with the finished job, I would use the company again and recommend them without hesitation. I am also pleased I went to a local family owned business I was also pleased I went to a local family owned business.

    We have no hesitation in awarding top marks to the Fireplace Studio. From the start of the process, from visiting the outstanding showroom at Bramcote..., to the completion, with the installation of our fireplace, the service was outstanding. We received impartial but constructive advice, without any pressurised selling, on the type of fireplace most suitable based on our requirements. The installation went so smoothly and the finish is superb. We are delighted and consider that the cost has been fully justified. Thank you Andy, Dean, Keegan and Adam for all your assistance
