Four Styles of Hearth Plates for Wood Burning Stoves

Posted on the 17th August 2018

Hearth plates are placed underneath a standalone stove to protect your combustible flooring cover. Whether your floor covering is wood or carpet, a good quality hearth plate can protect it against any fire hazards. You can place any hearth plate that’s made of any non-combustible material. There is a wide range of materials to choose from. Here are four exciting options for you to consider.

Glass Hearth Plates

Circular Clear Glass Hearths

Glass stove plates are highly stylish, easy to maintain, heat resistant, and are ideal for standalone electric and wood burning stoves. Usually made of 12mm thick toughened glass, these hearths add a touch of elegance and class to any space. These are the most affordable and easy to clean hearths available in the market, and are a popular choice.

Limestone Hearths

Blue Stone Hearth

Limestone is a popular natural stone that’s primarily made of a mineral called calcite. It is usually formed over millions of years by shell, sand and mud deposits at the bottom of oceans and lakes. A limestone hearth adds an instant visual appeal in any space. Limestone hearths are available in a wide range of colours and shapes. Although they are pricier when compared to glass hearths, they score highly on beauty and performance. So if you are looking for a hearth floor plate that will stand out in your room, look no further than limestone hearths.

Slate Hearths

Slate Hearth for Stoves

Slate is a highly unique natural stone that is highly durable and powerfully beautiful at the same time. It is known to be one of the most durable natural stones and is resistant to scratches, cracks, chips and breaks. It is a relatively high-end stone. At Wharfe Valley Hearths, you can choose from Riven Slate and Smooth Slate hearths at competitive prices.

Granite Hearths

Rectangle honed Granite Hearth

Granite is another very popular natural stone. A granite hearth will add a dash of luxury and timeless beauty to your space.
