Cosy & Classy: Why Fireplaces Never Go Out of Style

Cosy & Classy: Why Fireplaces Never Go Out of Style

When it comes to cosy living rooms, there’s nothing more delightful than a slate fireplace. Fireplaces have always been popular, particularly in country homes and cottages, evoking a simpler time. Today we’d like to explore why it is that slate fireplaces never go out of style and how one could compliment your living room.

Warm and Inviting

On its own, a slate fireplace is a great ornamental touch for any living room, creating a centrepiece for your interior design. Add to that the practicality of being able to warm your living room directly during the winter without the need to heat up the whole house and it’s no surprise that they remain popular to this day.

And it’s not just about affordability either. There’s something endlessly comforting about being able to sit around a crackling fire, especially during the autumn and winter months.

Old Fashioned Comfort

If you want to really compliment your fireplace, a slate hearth adds an excellent touch of natural charm. In recent years, there’s been a shift in interior design trends towards more natural materials and the popularity of slate hearths is a perfect example of this.

Of course, slate hearths are also more practical. They’re easier to clean and create a nice barrier between your roaring fire and your carpets which can otherwise be damaged by the occasional spitting ember.

The Benefits of a Slate Fireplace

Slate fireplaces are highly durable and low maintenance. They’re easy to clean and they continue to look good for years with little to no work on your end. Slate is also an incredibly versatile material, meaning that it can be shaped and cut into the perfect size/design to meet your living room’s specific requirements.

Perhaps most importantly, while some materials come and go, real stone is an authentic material that has a truly timeless quality meaning that, no matter the trends, a slate hearth and fireplace will permanently enhance the value of your house. In that regard, it’s as much an investment as it is a home improvement.
