Design Ideas for a Fieldstone Fireplace

Fieldstone makes a wonderful material for fireplaces, whether you are building one outside or inside your home. This natural stone is forged from glaciers and offers a unique and classic beauty that is durable and will last a lifetime. Plus, there are many different design options to give each fireplace a distinguishable style. Here are some design ideas if you are considering building a fireplace from fieldstone.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Fieldstone fits perfectly into an outdoor setting. Designs can be more formal for modern settings with fieldstones cut into uniform shapes, or more natural in irregular patterns. Some outdoor designs include:

  • Adding the fireplace to the outside of the home. This works well with homes with fieldstone siding or accents.
  • Double-sided center fireplace. Give more access to the flickering flames with a double-sided fireplace in the center of your patio.
  • View backdrop. Place your new fieldstone fireplace in front of your view to enjoy both the fire and the scenery beyond.

Indoor Fireplaces

Fieldstone works well inside for homes with a cozy style. If uniform slabs are used, the mantel can be designed in different patterns or a classic mortar style. Many people love to embrace the natural shape and colors of the fieldstone in their fireplace, with large mantels that showoff the beauty of the stone. Wide mantels and chimneys that extend to the ceiling create a centerpiece for your living area that is stunning.

There are many different options for using fieldstone in fireplaces and other surfaces in your home. A visit to your local quarry can give you a taste of the natural splendor fieldstone can offer for your next stone project, including fireplaces.
