Traditional Fireplaces

Traditional Fireplace Supplier, Designer, Installer

Our traditional fireplaces are created using vintage and antique fireplace materials.

Classic fireplaces incorporate materials such as slate, reclaimed brick, granite, limestone, oak and marble with a wide range of antique and reproduction period fireplace products to compliment our wood burning stoves. In some cases the bulk of your new fireplace is already there, renovating and re-using your original fireplace surround, tiles or brickwork can make for a spectacular custom made traditional fireplace that blends into its original surroundings

In older properties (pre 1940) you can usually guarantee that when an existing fireplace is removed, a brick chamber will be revealed in varying sizes and conditions. This chamber is known as the builder’s hole and was constructed at the initial building stage to later accommodate the chosen open fireplace

Most log burning stoves are designed to fit in to a traditional builder’s hole. Simply adding a hearth and re-pointing or plain boarding maybe all that is needed to create a traditional fireplace design. Where the original brick chamber is in an unsuitable condition, we add reclaimed brick slips to give the desired effect. In modern houses the builder’s hole is usually a pile of rubble, in these cases we would have to undertake additional building works to create any type of traditional fireplace chamber you desire.

Integrate new and old!

The main aim is to make wood stoves compliment their traditional surroundings by tapping into the vast history of the English fireplace. From an enormous Tudor Essex inglenook to a stately London Victorian mantelpiece we prove that modern doesn't mean turning your back on historic dimension and design. Our mission is to make your fireplace once again take it's rightful place as the heart of your home. Scarlett's supply all of the new materials needed to create your traditional fireplace, from locally sourced hand carved oak to natural slate and reclaimed bricks, however we love to install unique antique and pre loved reproduction components. Reusing Georgian marble or arts & crafts oak or original cast iron makes for a stunning low carbon statement.
