Add character with a natural stone fireplace

A drystone fireplace amplifies country style residences

A floor to ceiling drystone fireplace characterises this country style homestead. Complimenting the wood flooring and exposed beams of this generous living room, the drystone walling brings a grounding, earthy quality to the room.

your fireplace design starts here

You’re renovating or designing your new home and thinking about including a fireplace. 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 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.
