Sandstone Fireplaces

Sandstone was the earliest stone material used in the construction of fireplaces and surrounds and it is easy to see why. Sandstone is a clastic rock that is mainly composed of sand-sized rock grains or minerals. Sandstone fireplaces have quickly become a regular sight in homes across the UK, offering aesthetic appeal and long-lasting durability. Sandstone fireplaces are especially common in properties that are often located in rural areas ranging from baronial halls to former rectories to thatched cottages.

Keep warm and lower your energy bills

A sandstone fireplace can help to project a warm, cosy atmosphere that can illuminate your home, giving your home a distinctive and visually-appealing look. A sandstone fireplace offers a sense of warmth that can ensure you stay warm during the winter months, becoming more and more popular in the construction of new homes and in renovations of older properties.

Sandstone is particularly adept at retaining heat from your fireplace, increasing energy efficiency and lowering your energy costs. By radiating heat for longer than other materials, this means that you can enjoy a warmer room for longer, ensuring that you can stay comfortably in your living space long after the fire has subsided.
