4 Major Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Fireplace Surround

Choosing the right material and style for your fireplace surround is critical not only in creating cohesion in your design but also in ensuring that you are installing one that can last for a long time. So before you decide, consider these important factors:

1. Color & Style

Choosing the right color and style is the first step. Since your fireplace surround is considered an extension of other elements in your interior design, they should match the theme in that room. If you want to make your fireplace the main focal point, you can choose a color that will make it stand out and tone down secondary focal points by using muted colors.

2. Size

The size of your fireplace and the room you’re installing it in will determine the size of the surround. Make sure that the piece will perfectly fit in the room’s size (not too small or too big) and on your fireplace (not too loose or too tight).

Too large fireplaces might overpower the room and cause the area to become too hot especially if installed in small spaces. On the other hand, too small fireplaces will look insignificant and won’t create an impact. They won’t also be efficient in heating up the room.

Tip: Small fireplaces are ideal if you only want yours to be an accessory rather than a focal point.

Other important factors to consider when deciding the size are:

  • The chimney breast’s width
  • The width and height of the wall you’re going to install the fireplace in

3. Material

Choose a material that is durable enough to resist the heat from your fireplace. There are many options you can choose from. However, take note that there are specific materials that are more suitable for the type of fire you will be using. For instance, some surrounds won’t be suitable for wood or solid fuel burning fireplaces due to the heat they produce.

Remodeling your fireplace in natural stone not only provides an excellent ROI and updated look but also great durability. They are more crack and chip-resistant than traditional brick fireplaces.


  • Consider local building regulations for the construction of fireplaces and stonework. It is best to ask for the help of a professional in deciding what material is best suited for your fireplace and in the installation of your fireplace surround to ensure safety and durability.

4. Heat Output

Lastly, the heat output along with the size of the room will have a huge impact on the type of material you should be using. This will prevent the fireplace surround from getting damaged due to too much heat. Thus, it is also important to choose the right heat source that your chosen material can handle.

Their design versatility and durability make them ideal options for demanding applications like those that require a high level of heat tolerance.
