Once upon a time the most acceptable material for the fireplace and the mantel was stone, marble or simple bricks and mortar. Today, many houses either replaced it with wood, or have a good amount of wood fitted in and around it. The beauty of the wooden fireplace is something you have to see to believe. Wood brings a majestic beauty to the overall look of the fireplace that indeed cannot be expected with any other material.

What Type Of Wood Is Best For Your Wooden Fireplace

One has to be careful about the fact that wood is flammable and can easily be the cause of a major disaster. Hence, before you install your wooden fireplace, you will need to find out about the safety measures that are required of you. Other than this impediment, the wooden fireplace would be the best choice for anyone with love for luxuriant interior decorations.

The best choice of material for your wooden fireplace would be oak, though it costs literally an arm and a leg. However, looking into the long term benefits of the oak, the price is indeed well deserved provided you can afford it. Oak is a majestic type of wood, beautiful, rich and of exceptional quality in texture and body. The Oak mantel, once installed, might never be changed.

No matter how the interior decoration looks, wood will match it. This is for those who can afford it and prefer wood to any other type of material. Normally speaking, people in general prefer marble because it is cheaper, needs no maintenance and is easy to clean. Besides, marble is beautiful, too.

There are a lot of things that you should consider when you take the decision. There are things like what is your budget, how long you are planning to stay in the house (minimum and maximum), whether you are planning to sell the house you will be in or not, and so on. Now, since wood will be quite expensive, and this is a great necessity, it will need special permission to construct anything made of wood.

Other materials that are used may be as durable, but not half as beautiful. For example wrought iron, granite, and marble are all cheaper, quite presentable, but their beauty pales compared to wood. Among the other choices, there is nothing but wood, wood and wood. Wood is indeed beautiful and nothing can be even remotely compared with it in its richness and luxuriant feeling.
