As brick fireplace installers we mainly use locally sourced original reclaimed bricks with lime mortar to create our new brick fireplaces with wood burning stoves. Traditionally, visible brickwork fireplace features looked correct in inglenooks and large brick fireplaces because they were an integral part of the chimney breast structure. Since the 1920's visible feature brickwork used in the construction of brick fireplaces has proved popular. These modern types of brick fireplace (that were built up to the late 1980's) used brickwork solely as a design feature and can look very odd. Reclaimed bricks for fireplaces can look stunning if they are laid in a way that looks structurally correct. Simply laying a random brick, just for the sake of it is not always the best way forward.
