After a slight dip in popularity for the last few years, marble fireplaces are now starting to make a comeback.
When we say a dip however, we are talking by a marginal amount. Marble is a highly sought after product with an exceptionally unique presence. Additionally, it has a timeless quality that always draws veering design trends back in.
There are a large variety of marble products on the market. We at Granite Unlimited can say this confidently, as we ourselves have a broad range of marble fireplaces. This can make selecting the right one for your space, and specific needs, challenging.
In the following article we are going to outline how you can more confidently explore the options available to you. We want to give you the knowledge to go forth and make informed decisions. The right fireplace can make or break a space, so let us help you.

Home Fireplaces: Why Getting It Right Is Important
In a lot of homes, past and present, the fireplace is the focal point of the living space. Not only is it functional, as it heats the room, but it provides a point of interest in a room. With the right fireplace, you can create a feature in your communal space that really maximises aesthetic value.
Also, did you know that some experts speculate that having a functioning fireplace can add as much as 5% to your property’s value?
As you can see, home fireplaces stand to benefit you to no end. Even if you do not plan to put your property on the market anytime soon, you will reap the benefits of integrating one from an aesthetic sense.
It is worth pointing out that whilst the right fireplace can be exceptionally beneficial, the wrong choice could really disrupt the design flow of your home. It is important to consider a number of factors, including style, finish and size.
This also applies to marble fireplaces. Although integrating one can inject an undeniable sense of elegance into your home, the wrong choice could create more problems for your property. Continue below where we expand on this.
Of All The Marble Fireplaces, Which One Is Right for Me?
This is, undoubtedly, a hard question to answer. This is because every person’s home and requirements are unique and thus different.
There are however a few things to consider which will take you down the correct path. These include:
When selecting your fireplace, you need to consider the preexisting design scheme. Additionally, it is worth considering and perhaps exploring your own tastes.
If you are more of a traditionalist, for example, you may benefit from a marble fireplace that is ornate and grand. Conversely, if you prefer more contemporary spaces then you may be better suited to one that is more downstated and simple.
Consider what you already have, what you typically like and try to visualise the product in your living room. The good news is, there are options for just about every buyer.
Marble fireplaces can arrive in a number of different finishes, which is definitely worth exploring. Honed marble, for example, has been ground to a smooth finish. The honed variety has a matte like appearance and is smooth to touch. This may be great for more modern homes, where the objective is to add subtle value rather than draw attention.
On the other end of the spectrum we have polished marble, which has a silky/ glossy finish. Although visually appealing, this style of finish is not for everyone. Whilst it will provide star appeal, it may be suited to buyers with grander, more ambitious design aspirations.
You need to consider size and available space carefully, including furniture. Selecting a product that is too small will not have the desired effect. Moreover, a product that is too big may give the room a cluttered feel and look out of place.
We would encourage you to take your time with this. Do not rush any decisions, as a luxury fireplace is a big commitment. If you get it right though, it will pay dividends.
