There are many topics to consider within this overall decision.  Is the unit going to be an indoor or outdoor accessory?  What type of material and design will be used?  For example, one could select a gas fireplace, a more traditional wood fireplace, or even an electrical unit.  Certainly, functionality will be important to this overall choice in terms of ventilation requirements, the availability of a needed natural material, and the decided attention to style that one wishes to represent.  In simpler terms, the overall choice has to not only look good but be workable.  Or, in a reverse light, style is as important as substance.

Whatever the order of rationale, many people consider both of these goals to be best met by choosing amongst many ceramic, natural stone, or porcelain luxury fireplaces.  One can enjoy the rustic simplicity of the most elemental needs of a fireplace–warmth and heat–in a natural setting of earthy materials.  Yet, a choice of sandstone, limestone, field stone, or especially marble can display a sheer elegance that cannot really be expressed or personalized in any other way.  The sense of hearkening back to earlier times is mixed together with a more fashionable and trendy sleek look that can be both traditional and modern in a simultaneous manner.

The choice of these materials will certainly be influenced by the location and proximity of one’s home but there really are no “wrong” decisions that can occur.  In the final analysis, selecting amongst these natural material settings is going to be a tremendous “win” for the homeowner in almost any manner.  And, these are very popular choices in the effort to regenerate the sense of family and community within one’s home as well as to increase the overall market value.
