There’s nothing better than curling up by the fire on a chilly, fall night. Fireplaces add warmth and ambience, making spaces in your home, such as the living room, the ideal place for entertaining and hanging out with your family. By combining the elegance of a fireplace with the beauty of natural stone, you can turn any home’s living space from so-so to so sophisticated.
Aesthetically speaking, a fireplace can make an excellent focal point for most any room by adding texture, scale and color to the room. Whether you want to complement your existing décor or develop the room’s look around the fireplace, the variety of stone offered by Semco makes it easy to find a finish that will suit you and your family’s taste.
In addition to being visually pleasing, natural stone fireplaces are also extremely durable and low maintenance. The sturdiness of the stone allows it to withstand the high temperatures that come with housing a fire and its durability insures the stone will last for a number of years. Natural stone is also very easy to clean needing only warm water and a rag to wipe away dust, grime and dirt.
If you’re not quite ready to commit to natural stone or already have a fireplace made of another stone, there is always the option of installing natural stone thin veneer. Not as heavy or expensive as regular natural stone, thin veneer allows you to add the look of natural stone to your home without the cost or commitment. Check out our previous blog for tips and our “how-to” section for a video on the process.
Natural stone fireplaces can enhance any home’s style while adding warmth and elegance to your space. Whether your home is modern and trendy or classy and elegant, Semco has a stone that will work for you.
