There are many different parts that make up a traditional fireplace. The same is true when you are using a fireplace insert. You still want it to look and feel like the real thing while being able to have something that is more efficient and costs less to use and maintain. With that being said it is important that you have the right type of hearth for your fireplace insert.
There are so many designs and styles to choose from that it can take us some time to find the perfect one. The trick is to know what type of fireplace insert that you have or are planning on buying. Then you need to know how the hearth will work around the fireplace and the room that it will be used in.
There are many different types of materials that are used to make the hearth fireplace insert – but none is more elegant and durable than stone. You can find stone in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes that will help to create a random pattern and a great look to the fireplace.

Last but not least you have the brick that you are able to use to make the hearth fireplace insert. This is also quite durable and one of the easiest to put together. There are not many choices when it comes to brick – but it is able to give your fireplace an almost rustic look to it.
