There are a multitude of cultured stone products available in colors and textures for virtually any type of look for fireplace projects, including traditional, rugged and contemporary. Choose from many options for designing your cultured stone fireplace. You may opt to mount stone around small areas of the fireplace mantle, such as the mantel facing and along the legs or columns. Some people position the fireplace in the middle of a wall and cover the entire wall with stone.

 Installation Tips

 The typical cultured stone fireplace is a zero-clearance fireplace that is comprised of a stainless-steel pipe that is framed in by 2-inch by 4-inch boards or metal studs. Use cement board or plywood to sheath the framing. Fasten metal lathe to the surface of the board so that the mortar can properly bond to the surface. Apply the cultured stone after the scratch coat is dry.
