A rugged fireplace for a rural property

A rich texture and colour pallete of this fireplace cladding reflects the scenery beyond

Warming the internal living spaces with its rich colour pallete and irregular texture, this rugged fireplace is clad in freeform limestone Coolum walling. Echoing the abundant natural light and hardy rural surrounds of this property, the natural stone walling consciously links the land to the contemporary design in which this fireplace sits.

your fireplace design starts here

Whether you decide to create a large scale outdoor fireplace for alfresco dining all year round or a clean, modern fireplace that is the central focus for your interior living room, finishing detail is key.

One of the most important considerations is how your fireplace design will be finished. We think it’s always best to find solutions that make the fireplace appear as if it’s a solid structure and part of the built environment, rather than a veneer wall. This means thinking about capping and corner detail. Does your fireplace run into a wall or will it be free-standing? What natural stone tiles or stone cladding will best suit the colours or textures of your home? 

 Whether it’s an outside fireplace or one inside the home, it’s essential to consider these elements before you finalise your choice of stone cladding.
