To complement one of our gas or electric fires, and to give an installation the perfect finishing touch, add one of our attractive surrounds or mantels. Contemporary or traditional, we have an exciting choice of products on display at our popular fireplace showroom in Cheam. An installation isn’t complete without a surround, and we have already taken our designs into countless homes across the region.
Simply Grate Fireplaces and Stoves covers all locations across London and the South East. Sutton and Wimbledon are both key service areas for our company, established in 1978.
Choose fireplaces in an assortment of styles, finishes and sizes. If you want something more traditional, a classic timber surround adds a certain sophistication to your room space. For a more contemporary style, our marble fireplaces and mantels work perfectly in modern homes. Should your preferences sit somewhere in between, a simple fireplace in Indian sandstone could be much closer to what you need.
You might even prefer a fireplace in cast iron.
Fireplaces are about so much more than the fire itself. With the right surround or mantel, you can create a definitive focal point for a room that reflects your personal tastes.
Optimise your investment and get more from your budget with timber fireplaces which start at a very modest price. Wood is still one of the most versatile of all materials and, when used in the manufacture of fireplaces, it adds an incredible elegance to any room design. Opt for paler tones in birch, opulence with mahogany, or rustic charm with oak beams.
Our fireplace showroom sells more timber surrounds to our valued customers in Sutton and Wimbledon, and to those in the surrounding areas, than from any other material.
Stone fireplaces, and marble surrounds in particular, still have modest starting price points but can understandably run into thousands of pounds. When you see the quality of carving and embellishment in these surrounds, however, you know that you are paying for the best the market has to offer. Choose plain white or cream, or marble with a unique coloured grain.
Alternatively, grace your home with one of our limestone fireplaces for an understated look. Slate works well too, especially when stripped back to its original dark colour.
If you own a period property in Sutton or Wimbledon, or an older home anywhere else in London or the South East, cast-iron fireplaces can help to keep original appearances intact. These surrounds have an incredible impact in the right setting and, while expensive, offer many years of hardwearing use and performance. Match with tiles to create a room feature.
Be aware that cast-iron fireplaces have a susceptibility to moisture and will rust. Expect a little maintenance here and there if you opt for this most traditional of designs.
Cast iron also works well with wood burning stoves.
