WHY and WHEN do you need a Hearth for your fireplace

Keeping your home warm and cozy all winter long is easy with a functioning fireplace. In order to contribute to the decor of the room, all parts must exhibit beauty, grace and good proportions. Let’s look at the anatomy of the fireplace. A hearth, mantel surround and insert are vital elements of a Fireplace. The Hearth is a floor extension that draws attention to the fireplace and is a protective feature for the wooden floor. 

At DreaCast Design we cast hearth from the same colour concrete as your fireplace surround. The hearth part can be flat or tall depending on the design you prefer and the functionality level you expect to reach. Also, the hearth can be made as 1 whole piece (single hearth) or from multiple pieces (multi-piece hearth).

The Purpose of the Hearth

A hearth is a protective barrier placed around a fireplace. It serves many purposes:

  • Protect the floor from heat and sparks and to provide a safe place to stoke the fire (especially applicable to wood-burning inserts);
  • Hold and mount essential fireplace accessories, such as a fire screen or set of tongs. In many homes, the hearth is the focal point of the room, and it can be further adorned with a mantel or other decorations. 

When choosing a hearth material, it is important to consider both form and function. As for maintenance, A concrete fireplace hearth is durable and easy to clean.

NOTE: Make sure the area around the fireplace is ready for Installation: clean and level surface (we don’t recommend installing a hearth on the carpet – it’s very unstable). It should be dry and smooth so the hearth lay smoothly on it. Also, we always provide a Manual to make the Installation process easier even for professionals.
