Blue Limestone Hearth
Creating the perfect fireplace in your home involves many difficult decisions, one of the most crucial being the hearth selection. Traditional Beams customers can now take advantage of our small but carefully selected stock of beautiful natural slate and limestone hearths.
The Blue Limestone Hearth offers a contemporary feel to any fireplace.
Unlike riven stone which is split to follow the natural grain of the stone resulting in a far more uneven surface, the Blue Limestone Hearth is honed for a softer finish, meaning it is ground flat for a consistently smooth surface. Honed finishes are also far easier to keep clean.
Honed surfaces will be visibly lighter than a polished finish but can be darkened with oil giving you more than one way to display your hearth. The Blue Limestone is also calibrated for a consistent thickness of 30mm, making it easier to install.
If joining more than one piece, opt for dark grout for a more continuous look or with a contrasting light grout for a striking feature.
As with all natural stone, each piece of Blue Limestone will have tonal variations, unique patterns and slight differences in colour, displaying predominant tones of blues and greys. Your hearth will be truly unique to you, adding to its natural charm.
Limestone is one of the most popular natural stones used in the world and has been for thousands of years. The process of creating limestone can take millions of years making limestone even more precious and beautiful.
Each piece is calibrated to 30mm thick.
1400mm x 400mm (bullnose)
900mm x 600mm (square edge)
