A slate fireplace looks great in virtually any style . . . from traditional to contemporary . . . . . . .

The  broad  range of colors, textures and finishes available with slate make   it  an  ideal choice for architects, de-
signers,  contractors and builders, as well   as  discriminating  homeowners,
for it is a remarkably versatile materi-
al and extremely adaptable to a host   of widely varying applications.  Easily sawn or trimmed to size,  split at any thickness and machined to any finish, slate’s  versatility  in design and con-
struction is limitless.

Thinly sliced natural slate veneer stones,  as well as slate tiles,  are avail-
able in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colors and textures.  As a result, a broad  range  of different looks are possible with a slate design,  as shown in the examples pictured below.

In addition,  the actual positioning or placement of the stones or tiles can be varied to create a host of different looks.   For example, note the diag-
onal  placement  of  the  similarly sized tiles in the slate surround pictured below,  left,  which  contrasts  sharply with the horizontal banding on the fireplace pictured below, right, in which different sizes of stone are used.

The slate in the brilliantly-hued fireplace design pictured below,  left,  is in-
fused  with  tones of copper for dramatic effect,  as is -- albeit to a lesser extent -- the beautiful Craftsman Style design pictured on the right.

The following two sets of images present a study in contrasts.  Below, left, the  random  sizes  and  smooth  finish of the slate veneer stones contrast sharply with the rough textured,  similarly sized stacked stones of the slate design on the right.

Likewise, the rough textured facing of the black slate fireplace pictured be-
low,  right,  contrasts  sharply  with the highly polished finish and beautiful veining patterns of the fireplace pictured to its left . . . . . . .
