Will A Bespoke Fireplace Hearth With A Marble Fire Surround Work?

March 05, 2012

At Creative Fireplaces, we are a specialist marble fireplace manufacturer. We manufacture all our fire surrounds in Nottinghamshire and are able to offer a full bespoke made to measure service

Made to measure fireplace hearths:

1. We frequently get asked to manufacture bespoke made to measure fireplace hearths to match our range of marble fireplaces. This is a great alternative to purchasing a new carpet if you have got an existing cut out that you need to work around

2. Essentially a made to measure hearth can be made in any size (or shape you require) and the idea is to cover the existing cut out, and hence avoid the need to having to change your current flooring

Will a made to measure hearth look good?

1. Conventionally there is a 2 inch overhang each side of the fireplace. Hence 2 inches overhang on the left and right hand side till the hearth and mantle start. Hence for example, we can manufacture a 58 inches wide bespoke hearth for a standard 54 inch wide fire surround.

2. This would essentially mean just an additional 4 inches overall and 2 additional evenly spaced inches either side of the fireplace body. Hence the overhang in this case would be 4 inches rather than 2 inches and would hence look fine
