We understand that the space in which you live is an expression of your individual style, with the fireplace forming the very heart of your home. It is a focal point that not only extends the warmest of welcomes to your family and friends, around which they will gather naturally, but it also offers you the opportunity to make a design statement that defines the room even when the fire is not lit. Many of today’s contemporary fires, whether gas-fired or woodburning, are designed to fit into an existing chimney breast or a specially built studwork structure. The wall you have chosen for your new fire can also become a design feature to complement and enhance your fireplace. Browse our unique collection of porcelain and natural stone tiles to complement your fireplace and help you create your ultimate look for your interior space.

Important Additional Information

THINSTONE CLADDING GREY

THINSTONE CLADDING GREY

Check your walls are suitable.
Drywall is combustible and not a suitable material either for use behind the wood stove or for use underneath tile. Removing it from the wall behind the wood stove allows you to install cement backerboard instead. Cut right through the drywall using a drywall saw. Remove all the drywall from any wall that comes within the eight- to 36-inches recommended by your stove’s manufacturer. For the most seamless appearance, remove the drywall straight to the ceiling, even if you do not plan on tiling that high. There are some cement backerboards that are paintable, allowing you to install tile as high as you like, and still have a non-combustible surface to the ceiling behind the stove.  We recommend you use a base board before tiling.

Porcelain tiles
Shade variation is an inherent feature of the manufacturing process.

Shading
We recommend that natural stone and porcelain tiles are loosely laid out and ‘blended’ prior to fixing to achieve the most pleasing distribution of shades. Differences between batches can be more marked, for this reason we recommend that you buy all the tiles at one time. No liability for shading issues can be accepted after installation.

Sealing
It is strongly advisable to seal natural stone and unglazed porcelain tiles before commencing installation. This protects the tiles from excessive adhesive or grout staining during the installation process, and also protects the tiles from staining in the future. Always apply the sealer / impregnator in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Adhesives and grouts
Always use high quality adhesives and grouts following manufacturers’ recommendations for their use and suitability for the type of tile, the application and the substrate being tiled.

Cleaning
Please note, the use of certain acid-based cleaning products may cause natural stone and porcelains to react and change character.
