Hard wearing granite is the most suitable hearth material for solid fuel stoves and open fires. Our wide range of granite colours can be supplied polished as standard, or with a contemporary textured finish.
Sintered stone is also known as ultra-compact or porcelain and is perfectly suitable as a hearth material. Offering significant advantages over natural stone, these materials are non-porous, highly scratch resistant and come in a beautiful range of colours and finishes.
Black slate has traditionally been used as a hearth surface material for centuries. Our Black Italian Slate makes a stunning matt black hearth, although it should be noted that slate is much easier to scratch than granite.
Our beautiful Italian and Spanish marbles can bring a touch of real class to your living space. Although not practical for solid fuel use, marble can be used as a hearth material for gas and electric fireplace installations.
We are very pleased with our choice and with the quality of the workmanship. We were also impressed with the service provided by all the staff we have had contact with at Ivett & Reed.
