Although fireplaces are no longer the primary way to heat a home, they are still quite popular for doing just that. Especially for those who live in very rural areas, a fireplace can be a potentially incredible investment if you have the means to gather your own wood. Heating your house doesn‘t have to cost money - if you have the motivation, you can trade a little hard work for some heat.
The Victorian era was often referred to as The Battle of the Styles, due to the popularity of the many decorative designs from previous eras. Depending on a family‘s status, the Victorian fireplace mantel was made from slate, marble, wood or stone. The early and mid-Victorian period preferred the Gothic and Elizabethan styles: the Gothic was associated with the true Christian principles of morality, honesty and purity and the Elizabethan era invoked nostalgia for a chivalrous bygone age.
Shapes and sizes also vary for the rock material. They can be round and bulky or flat and thin as in the stone veneer type or rectangular shaped. You can also opt for the big round or wide rectangular shaped rocks or the smaller rocks depending on the design you want to achieve. What matters is you follow the existing building code in your area of residence to ensure your home‘s safety.
