Looking for an Open Fire?

Perhaps you are looking for an open fire for your home, but you aren’t sure what design will work best for you, or you can’t envisage what the finished fire will look like.

Or you have particular needs for your property and would like a bespoke fire, but don’t know what options are available to you.

Or you may have a fire that doesn’t work – but you don’t want a stove or wood-burner.

In which case our Design Survey Visit is just the answer for you.

What is a Design Survey Visit?

We come to visit you at your property for a couple of hours. 

During the visit we talk over what you are looking for and discuss potential design ideas.

We also take some photos and the dimensions of your fireplace, and look at your chimney, air supply and existing installation to complete an initial assessment of all aspects relating to your fire.

Benefits to You The Customer:

The Design Survey Visit makes the whole experience of creating an open fire exciting and real for you.

You are involved in the process right from the start, and have access to all our design expertise for a unique fire made for your needs.

You get to meet us, ask questions, get information about the process and help us understand exactly what you are looking for.

We offer our Design Survey visits nationwide.

There is no charge for visits within 30 miles of our Worcester base.

What happens after the Design Survey Visit?

Following on from the Design Survey Visit we do a sketch of the proposed fire, roughly to scale, as it would be in your fireplace.

With this you can see what the finished fire will look like, and make any changes to the design at this point. 

Here’s an example of a design sketch with the finished fire in place on completion:
