Granite is a workhorse of a stone. It is low-maintenance, multifunctional and resistant to wear and tear. Especially for fireplace surrounds, it is easy to clean and heat resistant, making it a perfect choice. Homeowners will appreciate that granite won’t be stained by the soot and grime that may collect from a natural wood burn. Because of its bacteria-resistant nature, soapy water with a washcloth is all that would be required to wipe away dust or dirt. Granite comes in many colors and patterns, making it the perfect choice for someone who wants to make their fireplace a statement piece, or for someone who is going for a more timeless look.
Marble remains a classic option for a tasteful, refined look that can be adapted to nearly any design style. Vertical applications of marble on a fireplace surround is a perfect way to showcase the luxury of marble without risk, since fireplaces are not subjected to much traffic, and ambient heat from a fireplace will not damage the stone. Marble is a metamorphic stone, created when limestone is subjected to extreme heat and pressure over long periods of time. It’s truly a work of nature. For those with gas fireplaces, marble works especially well because there is no concern about dirt or grime accumulating on the surface.
