Wooden Fire Surrounds

Traditionally, wooden fire surrounds have been much sought-after by householders who wish to give a room a classic look and feel. A warmly coloured wooden fireplace not only creates a cosy atmosphere, but often becomes a focal point for the room in which it is installed. Wooden fireplace surrounds are available in a wide range of shades and styles, so can easily be incorporated into existing décor. Wood, of course, is a robust material, able to withstand the knocks and scrapes of everyday life.

Oak, for example, is very strong and durable. In its natural condition, it is an attractive light colour, with a prominent grain, but can be treated with oil or wax to bring out its natural shine. A genuine, solid oak fire surround can create an elegant, natural feature with the need for further decoration. Indeed, bought wisely and treated correctly, oak fire surrounds have a distinct character that you can enjoy for years to come.
