What is the Best Stone for a Stone Fireplace?
Since the major requirement for a fireplace material is heat resistance, both engineered stone and natural stone are ideal for a fireplace. When deciding between the two, the main distinctions rely on personal preferences, likes and dislikes.
Since the fireplace is often the focal point of a room, aesthetics is key, which is why many people opt for the incredible design versatility and opulence of natural stone. Natural stone is considered the most high-end and luxurious stone. It’s also an excellent material because of its heat retention and durability. Particularly granite and marble are the most popular choices due to their sturdy qualities and opulent appearances.
Although, you will have to seal granite and marble natural stone fireplaces roughly once a year to ensure they keep looking high quality for years since the stones are porous.
An engineered stone fireplace has the benefit of being highly durable, reasonably lightweight and does not require a structural base. An engineered stone fireplace might be a less expensive alternative to purchase and install, depending on the quality.
At Made in Stone, the engineered stone products we sell include Caesarstone, YDL Quartz, Silestone, Dekton and Smartstone. Engineered stones are carefully tailored to ensure the material can withstand the intense everyday pressures a stone fireplace receives.
Most types of engineered stones offer high durability and great hygienic qualities, such as water, heat and stain-resistance, as well as being an easy to clean surface that does not require much ongoing maintenance or re-sealing.
How Much Does a Stone Fireplace Cost?
The cost of a stone fireplace varies widely depending on the stone itself and the intensity of the fireplace construction.
The cost of a stone fireplace is mostly determined by the procedure involved in preparing it for installation. For example, the size of the fireplace and the design features will add to the overall stone fireplace cost.
Generally, for initial stone prices, there are 4-5 distinct cost levels within any stone brand, ranging from a “regular” collection to a “deluxe” or “exclusive” collection. But in addition, the stone’s rarity, thickness, colour, popularity, manufacturing methods and shipping costs are all variables that make some final stone fireplaces more costly than others.
Plus, despite popular belief, some varieties of natural stone can be less expensive than engineered stones! So, it pays to shop around before making your final stone fireplace decision. At Made in Stone, we offer many stone fireplace products to suit all budgets!
Finally, stone installations themselves can vary greatly, which results in widely different final costs. Considerations such as if the fireplace installation is new or replacing an existing installation, access to the site, and site location all affect final costs.

Design Features to Consider for the Perfect Stone Fireplace
Before constructing your perfect stone fireplace, you must consider a few design features.
Firstly, mantels are a common fireplace feature that can be made to look traditional or modern. For example, a big, reclaimed timber mantel can maintain a traditional look, whereas a thin industrial metal can create a contemporary looking mantel.
In addition, a hearth is another iconic fireplace feature. Although not required, a hearth may enhance the grandeur of a stone fireplace in the same way that a mantel does. The hearth can be useful, offering additional seats or storage, depending on your design. To enhance the aesthetic of your fireplace, you can choose a complementing stone colour for the hearth to ensure your fireplace truly stands out.
Finally, when selecting your stone fireplace, you will also need to consider the type of fuel source it will be, either wood-burning or gas-fuelled. While wood is the traditional option, which is environmentally friendly and creates a lovely ambience, gas-fuelled fireplaces tend to be safer to run and more straightforward to maintain.
