Ideas for a Cobble Stone Fireplace

Updated:2014-05-07 11:41:16

Cobble stone fireplaces create a cozy feel. Mostly recognized as the material used to pave 15th-century streets in Europe and around the world, the lumpy stone is used today for interior and outdoor home decorating, as well as classic roadways. When coming up with ideas for a cobblestone fireplace, check in with the rest of the room. Ask yourself if changing from a brick to a stone fireplace, for example, will require you to rearrange -- or redecorate -- existing furniture.

                                                                 

Cobble Stone Wall

  Add a high cobble stone wall. You do not have to limit the stones to just the size of a normal hearth. Apply the stones wider and taller than the fireplace box so that stones create a stone mural on your wall. You can shape the stones to create more of an arch, or leave them free-forming, such as an Adirondack-like style. Or, opt for floor-to-ceiling cobblestones which transform a whole side of the room.

Mix Materials

Mix cobble stones and slate. Create a design layout for inserting both cobble stones and slate into the hearth. You can interchange cobble stone and slate in a pattern, or design a jumbled look, blending the stone materials at random. Because slate is a thin, more brittle stone, you can use it between cobble stones too, after squeezing the grout between two stones.

Make a Pattern
Depending on the coloration of the stone you have, group the stones into lighter, darker, and very dark stones. Design a swirling pattern, a concentric circle pattern or a geometric-type pattern using the color varieties. If you have more streamlined colors, such as all beige and tan, you can still create a spiral pattern or a boxy pattern according to how you lay in the stones.
