Fireplaces have been used to heat homes for hundreds of years. They were invented independently all over the world to provide heat and safe fire in a home. Because they were invented independently in different cultures all over the world, there are many different styles of fireplaces. There are simple fireplaces that are made from right angles and simple designs. They are beautiful in their simplicity and their function; Shaker furniture and Shaker designs are often in this category of simple elegance. There are ornate designs that feature carved impressions of flowers, leaves, and animals. These are often thought of as inspired by baroque architecture. There are fireplaces that have deities carved into them and much more.
All of these different fireplace designs are incredibly different and beautiful. If you want a new fireplace, you should consider one in a design that is elegant and attractive. You also should consider bespoke limestone fireplaces. A bespoke fireplace is great because it can be built in different styles. You can have an artisan craft a limestone fireplace in a rococo style or a Basque style. There are so many options. You can also blend styles. Shaker furniture and architecture, for example, is known for its simplicity and its elegance. You could combine Shaker simplicity with some embellishments in a more baroque style. You should ask the artisan what he or she thinks might look good in your house.
Limestone is one of the best fireplace materials because it is a resilient and strong stone that is fairly common. It is also an aggregate stone, which means that it is made from sediment that has been compacted over thousands of years. That makes it somewhat porous; it will absorb heat well. A limestone fireplace will not get so hot that you can’t touch it even while the fire is burning. Limestone is also popular because it is infinitely mutable.
Limestone can be cut into many different shapes and sizes. Some different types of stones can’t be shaped in certain ways because of the way they were formed. Limestone can be cut into every possible angle. It also comes in many different colours. Different shades of limestone range from very light colours of white or cream to a darker grey. You can choose a fireplace made from different kinds of limestone if you want to blend colours together to create a different look.
