If you want to stay warm, you must have a marble fireplace.
Half of the calendar year leads us to have temperatures close to 0° and, most of the fireplace cladding in Italy is made with marble. The decoration elements are an essential factor to give particularity and uniqueness. In addition to an aesthetic value, marble fireplaces are able to create an atmosphere of union between people. The marble fireplace also has a number of advantages also from a functional point of view. It is a material that has the fantastic ability to resist the heat generated by fire for a long time when this is used in the right way as a frame for a combustion chamber made of steel, cast iron and refractory products that allows the fireplace not to wear out its structure and its original color.
For the decoration of your fireplace you can do all the desired processes, thus making every particularity unique in its kind.
It can have a modern or antique design, according to personal taste. A simple frame or outline of the combustion chamber (fire) or decoration up to the ceiling can be created.
