If you think that brick is your only option for a fireplace surround, think again! There are many tile options that are heat resistant and stylish so you can enjoy a modern, contemporary or traditional look.

Contemporary Porcelain Tiles

Africa Beige Porcelain

Porcelain tile, with its many shapes and colors can instantly update your room. Whether you choose one color and let the tile shape stand out, a multi color mosaic or a porcelain tile with a cotto look, it can quickly add flair to any space. If you are creative, mix shapes like hexagons and squares to create a unique pattern all your own! You can even think natural stone if you like a more transitional style décor using our African Beige Porcelain tile.

Modern Glass Tile Mosaics

Think glass or porcelain tile. A great glass mosaic adds sparkle to your room. Subway tiles are traditionally used on bathroom walls and kitchen backsplashes, but why not use it for a fireplace surround? Especially when laid in a creative layout such as herringbone – subway tiles or another porcelain tile can make for a great focal point. If you want something a bit less trendy, try Limestone.

Traditional Natural Stone

Nothing says traditional like natural stone! Whether you choose a small square for that stone look that is easy on the budget, or a large format tile or slab, stone is traditional and always in style. Think 3-D Mesh Mount Stack to add texture, Aphrodite Granite or Onyx for making a statement or Soapstone for a bit of a modern edge to your traditional home.
