Creative Fireplaces is proud to launch the marble fireplace with a standard rectangular hearth option. Previously the Shelbourne fireplace was only available with a bowed (curved) fireplace hearth. Although this standard bowed hearth look elegant and is complemented the fire surround, as it had a matching circular profile, many homeowners with a cut out in the existing carpet or unable to accommodate circular hearth. The majority of stone Masons and employees at Creative Fireplaces are unanimous impersonally preferring the Shelbourne fire surround with a bowed hearth option however, the choice is entirely up to the consumer. On occasion we have been asked to supply the Shelbourne fire surround with the standard semicircular with the Cambridge fireplace.
