At Smokin Joe – NZ’s quality custom fire hearth manufacturer and supplier – we believe that you shouldn’t have to replace an entire fireplace just because you can’t find a hearth that fits. That would be a needlessly expensive and timely project, when a custom-made fire floor protector would do the trick.
Benefits of Bespoke Hearths
- Floor Protection
Of course, the number one priority of a fireplace hearth is safety: it needs to protect your floor from the ash that your fireplace will inevitably spit out from time to time. Protection is the guiding force when building our fire floor protectors. We adhere to NZ’s hearth safety requirements, making you an ash floor protector out of fireproof materials and built to an appropriate size for your fireplace.
It’s elements around the house designed for safety that are often the least attractive. Door handle locks, kid’s safety latches and, unfortunately, ash floor protectors. But things are changing. Just as door handles are becoming sleek and modern, bespoke fire hearths and fire floor protectors are becoming more attractive too. After all, the fireplace is likely a feature point of your lounge, you should be able to surround it with an equally attractive hearth.
At Smokin Joe, we have a variety of tile colours and finishes for you to choose from for your bespoke ash hearth. It can have square or angled corners, and you get to select which trim will best suit your house’s décor.
- Increase the Value of your Home
Did you know that having a fireplace increases the value of your home? In NZ, we love our fireplaces to warm us up in winter – there’s really no heat like it. But the fireplace and its surrounding hearth need to be high quality to help enhance your house’s worth.
