When people come in to the showroom to choose a fireplace for their property, our first question to them is invariably What age is your house? Of course not everyone is looking for the quintessentially Period look; some homeowners are after a fireplace that will blend well with their modern interior. The one below is one that we make up from reclaimed marble.
The beautiful dove grey marble was reclaimed from a building within the London School of Economics. It has a clean finish and a lovely quality, plus the environmental benefit of being reclaimed. We have many more similar antique original and reproduction surrounds in our showroom. This will then give us an idea of what style would be most true to the building.
If your house is early Georgian or Regency, you may want to look at having a hob grate within the surround, whereas later Georgian or Victorian styles generally had register grates or inserts. Full inserts are more efficient as less heat escapes and is instead radiated into the room by the cast iron surrounding the basket.

I would advise anyone wanting to restore a working fireplace rather than just cosmetic where one had previously been ripped out to have their chimney swept and if needed, a new flue installed. Before doing this it may be worth enquiring for a quote as flue is charged by the meter, plus labour. It could get expensive before you even start on the actual fireplace. Once you start knocking a hole in the fireplace wall through to where the original fireplace was you should find the brick edges of the original and it is best to work to this for the correct dimensions and to save yourself work.
Cast iron fireplaces are extremely heavy, they need to be fitted properly with bolts. You must have a fireproof area in front of your fireplace. This is the constructional rather than the decorative hearth. Check the floor is level in front of the fireplace, in many older houses this may not be the case. Fitting a fireplace level and plumb on a chimney breast that is not looks dreadful.
Now on to the fun bit, looking for the perfect fireplace… I would definitely start looking at reclamation yards in your area, take your measurements with you. Cast iron fireplaces will vary dramatically in size and condition and thus price.

History of Antique Fireplaces
Your questions answered on blocked Victorian and Edwardian fireplaces, reinstating fireplaces, original fireplace designs, permitted fuels, removing paint from cast iron, the best finishes; removing smoke stains. Go outside and look at the chimney. It may have been capped or cowled but it should not have been completely sealed. Even if you do not intend to reinstate any fireplaces it should be unsealed, to ventilate the chimneystack.
And Victorians always had a proper hearth, not some tiles recessed into the floor. Was probably a fireplace there originally, maybe tile or maybe cast iron. That.
Mar 11, DIY 8 comments. So first, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the positive messages I received on the newly refreshed living room! One of the biggest changes in this room — and one of the easiest — was updating my old Victorian fireplace. I really just wanted to update the whole thing — leave the original insert in place that middle bit where the logs go and the frame itself but change everything else around it.
New tiles on the sides, a totally new hearth and replace the mantle as well. Well, the truth is, after this little refresh, all those plans for a replacement have pretty much gone out the window. And I figured if anyone out there has an old Victorian fireplace that needs a little love, my tips might help you too to save your cash and restore something of beauty in your period property — or just pin the image below to reference later!
As I explained in my post about the living room makeover , I started by simply painting the fireplace mantle the same colour as the walls.

For the safety of our clients and employees, the offices and workshops are working at reduced capacity. We are still responding to phone calls and emails, and are currently taking showroom viewings by appointment. Thank you. When many people choose their antique or reproduction fireplace, they go for a style that complements their decor, or perhaps the period of their house.
Warm stone or cool marble are always popular, as is a natural-looking wooden finish. But perhaps you’re looking for a real statement piece? If you want a fireplace that truly adds interest, an elegantly understated fire surround may not be the right choice. We’ve already looked at how dramatic dark marble can have a fabulous effect on a room. How about going even further, and trying something completely different?
