With the expert help you’ll get from us at Zigis, choosing which type of fire and surround will be easy. We’ll help you find the right fireplace to perfectly match the style and decor of your home from our extensive range of marble, stone and wood surrounds, and traditional and contemporary fires.

Stone Surrounds

Stone fire surrounds always make a statement. Like marble and wooden surrounds they can be made in any size and a variety of designs.

Stone surrounds are made of natural stone and each one is unique. There are many stone materials that are used, from the soft feel of Portuguese Limestone, through to the uniform look of Agean Limestone

Perhaps it is the sumptuous look and feel of the Umbrian and English Bathstone, which is the surround for you.

Marble Surrounds

There are two main varieties of marble surrounds. Natural marble surrounds and micro marble surrounds.
Natural marble surrounds are made from marble that is unmodified and is how it came out of the ground. No two pieces are exactly the same. When you buy a natural marble surround its colouring and veining are unique.

Micro marble are small pieces of real marble finely crushed and reconstituted to give an authentic finish of natural marble but without any of the imperfections of natural marble.

Wooden Fire Surrounds

Wooden fire surrounds are as popular today as they have ever been. Wooden fire surround designs come in classic traditional to modern through to contemporary and come in many wood shades such as oaks, mahoganies to bold colours.

Wooden fire surrounds can be fitted with any existing marble or granite, making the complete surround very personal to you. We also supply matching fireplace suites which include mirrors and occasional tables to help set the complete scene.

Whatever your needs, please feel free to contact us or call into one of our showrooms and see our comprehensive display of fires and fire surrounds and full selection of swatches.
