A slate fireplace surround is a popular choice in today’s homes. Slate is not only aesthetically attractive, it has excellent natural qualities that make it a superior material for a fireplace.

Slate is a metamorphic rock, a natural stone which is formed in the earth from quartz, sericite and other minerals under pressure and heat. Chosen for its advanced properties and its mesmeric natural appearance, slate was used in Ancient Egyptian architecture and has remained a popular choice today, used commonly for fireplaces, roofing, cladding and flooring.

From residential to commercial spaces, there’s nothing like a charming slate fireplace to make your family and guests feel more comfortable and inspire cherished memories.

Benefits of a SLATE Fireplace

Homeowners looking to create a natural and tasteful looking fireplace, need not look any further than a slate fireplace.

Unlike some other materials that give a harsh and cold look, slate has a natural and soft quality, making it an easy choice that will fit into most spaces seamlessly. 

Slate is admired for its beautiful matte appearance which can work in many design concepts including Victorian, modern, industrial, traditional, rustic and more. Slate can be crafted to have a smooth appearance or a textured look to suit the style you are aiming for.

Typically known for its alluring dark grey or black appearance, there are actually a surprising amount of shades and colours of slate to choose from, all formed naturally in the earth.

As a fire-resistant and thermally stable material, slate is a safe material to use in the home and perfectly suited for fireplace use.

Benefits of SLATE Fireplaces (Continued)

Another great quality that slate fireplaces have is that they are low maintenance, easy to take care of and are highly durable.

It’s easy and uncomplicated to clean a slate hearth or suite. Sealing the slate will ensure the slate is protected and safe from moisture and staining. To clean the slate, a soft bristled brush to dust off the ash will suffice. For any marks, a soft cloth with water and mild cleaner can be used.

If you are looking for a more affordable stone for your fireplace than marble and granite, slate is a great choice. Slate is comparatively cheaper in price than marble, micro marble and granite fireplaces, yet still holds the beauty of a natural stone.

Choosing slate saves the homeowner even more money in the long run with fewer risks for repairs or replacements than with many other fireplace materials. Slate stone typically has a very long life, it can even last for centuries.
