Fireplaces can be a centerpiece in a home. It’s a place where the family or guests can gather together and spend time with one another in a comfortable space. Choosing the look of your fireplace can change the look and energy of your home, as well as be a focal point in the space it’s found. Typically, a type of stone may be used to design it, and professional masonry is a great choice to consider.
Justin Avery Masonry in Edmonton shares how you can use the masonry design to customize your fireplace.
Choosing your stone
First and foremost, you’ll need to choose a material to design with. There are many different choices, including brick, thin brick, metamorphic or sedimentary stone, limestone, quartz, and other types of stone. All of these different kinds of stone have different textures and looks, so choosing a specific material for the fireplace design you want. For example, something like brick may be more rustic looking, but at the same time can be painted or framed in a certain way to suit your vision. This is something Justin Avery Masonry can help with.
Choosing the pattern
Once you’ve decided on the stone, it’s time to decide how you want to lay it out. You can stick to the basic pattern with straight rows, or play with the stones and create your own pattern to individualize the look as much as you choose. This may depend on the thickness of stones, the length, or various textures. You can also decide if you want the stone around the firebox, to include a hearth and if the stone will be installed up the wall to create a chimney-effect. With gas or electric fireplaces, there is no official chimney, so adding can really make your fireplace look authentic.
Installing the stones
Hiring a masonry contractor to help install the stone on your fireplace is very beneficial. They will be able to make your vision a reality, as well as offer expertise on different things you may want to try. They will get the job done quickly and effectively, completing the space to your liking for everyone to enjoy. Installing brick and stone is something you should always leave to the professionals.
