Help with synthetic stone fireplace dimensions?

Central79June 17, 2012

We are trying to place synthetic stone fireplace in Great room with 12' high ceilings. We will have stone from floor to ceiling with 42" fireplace. How narrow a surround can we use and still look good.

( we might try to place in corner of room)

Thanks

You need to check code. When we re-did our fireplace and put gas logs in, we needed to have 12" of non-combustible material on either side of the firebox before we hit the wall/surround. Check to see if that's the current code.

For our new build, I talked with the manager of a fireplace store. He told me to bring my plans in with the dimensions of the room to help determine the right size of the fire box and thus the size of the fireplaces for the spaces. They know what "feels" right and what would look too small in the space.
