Designing your dream fireplace

We can help you to create your dream fireplace.

At Stoneworld, we can create the perfect, bespoke fireplace or hearth for your home or project. A beautiful fireplace adds style and decorative detail, and our team can guide you through the process of turning your idea into a reality.

Step 1 – Templating

The first step of designing your fireplace or hearth is to digitally template it, so that we have the accurate measurements and dimensions to work with. You can either provide us with these yourself, or we offer a templating service where we can come and take the measurements, to ensure complete accuracy. (Please do not worry if your walls are not straight, we can cut your stone to any size and shape).

Step 2 – Selecting your material

Now to the best part… selecting your stone! We have a wide range of high-quality natural stone for you to choose from, in a variety of colours and finishes. You can come and view our range of stone at our site in Great Milton, Oxfordshire, or we can alternatively send you some free samples in the post to help you decide.

Step 3 – Design options

The next step is to discuss your design options with us at Stoneworld. For example, the stone you choose might be available in large sheets, or multiple pieces. If the stone is available in large sheets, this means we can create the hearth without any joints.

This hearth was created from one sheet of stone, in a classic T-shape

We will walk you through your other options as well, from the desired thickness of your fireplace or hearth, to the decorative edges (you can choose from pencil-rolled edges or flat edges for example).

Our team of skilled craftsmen in our on-site masonry workshop are also able to create bespoke surrounds for your fireplace. If you have an idea of what you would like yours to look like, we can use our high-tech stone cutting and carving machinery to create your design.

You can see some previous fireplaces and hearths we have made below…

Our team of Project Advisers are on hand to help you through the process, and will be happy to answer any questions you have. Anything you need, we can create in stone.
