Fireplace Chambers


The fireplace chamber (where the fire or stove is located) is an important but often overlooked part of the fireplace.

Choosing the surround and hearth is much more fun! However, the interior is actually one of the largest areas on view and is especially noticeable when the fire is not lit. It doesn’t matter what kind of fire you have in the chamber, the finish you choose will still play an integral part in the overall appearance of your fireplace.

The finish you choose essentially has three functions;

  • Protection
  • Decorative
  • Heat radiation

There are numerous types of finish available to you and they will perform these functions in different ways. Below is a list of some of the options you have that should assist you in making your decision.
