A slate fireplace elevates any interior and there are myriad ways to detail it to achieve any effect, slate has natural properties that allow it to be used in unusual ways:
- Slabs for the legs, lintel and hearth – classic and elegant for both modern and traditional settings.
- Stacked with the sawn edge visible, detailed in a number of ways for a thoroughly modern and impressive effect.
- Slate brick ‘sculpings’, also stacked, with a grain-edge visible has a taller face dimension and is more irregular and textural than a sawn edge. Can be stacked in courses or irregular.
- Tiles – with the face visible – can also be used.
