Installing a limestone hearth is a great way to enhance the richness and depth of any room that has a fireplace. The rugged, yet refined look of natural stone creates an ambiance of comfort that is not found in many other mediums.
The functionality of the stone provides the mason with an opportunity to create custom designs that display a truly unique work of art. Many designers view natural stone as a way to incorporate artwork into the functional structure of a home.
There are several different ways to utilize the stone when installing a limestone hearth. One option is to stack the stone and use it to build the structural framework of the fireplace itself. A skilled mason can utilize this method of installation and maximize the natural beauty of each piece.
