We are dedicated & committed to providing you with an excellent degree of service with quality products and you will see this from the moment you enter the showroom. You are welcomed to browse and enjoy the displays at your leisure with our knowledge and expertise readily on hand when you need it.
We have our own in-house Gas Safe Registered & HETAS registered installation services available to our customers & we are known throughout the area as one of the best, with great attention to detail. Along with our Natural Gas fitting services, we can now provide LPG installation/servicing work.
The Showroom: We have some fantastic displays in the showroom, some in room settings & many with working fires & in a vast range of styles, colours and materials including wood, stone, marble and cast iron to suit both traditional and contemporary homes. In addition to the display options, we offer a bespoke service to suit individual requirements, whether it’s a design of your own or just that you need one of the fireplaces that we have on display in a different size, this is not a problem. Carpet cut outs are not a problem - if you want to keep your existing carpet then we can make your new hearth to suit!
Our showrooms in Armstrong Street officially opened it’s doors to the public in April 1989, our aim was then and still is now, to provide a beautiful fireplace showroom where our customers have the welcome feeling of walking into a relaxing & cosy atmosphere, almost like going home!
Our original showroom started out with only ten fireplace displays, utilizing only a tiny part of our extensive site, whereas today, we have fifty four complete fireplace displays and several more individual fires and stoves on display all generously spread out in a variety of room settings, along with the extended choice available from our suppliers lovely brochures. Our showroom is huge & is often compared to the ‘Dr. Who Tardis’ by our customers - who on entering are surprised at how large the building is, as from the front it is impossible to see that the building extends right back via several large inter-linked rooms.
From opening our doors in 1989, we have continued to improve our showroom. We added our ‘Discount Corner’ in 1994, specifically aimed at those on a tighter budget yet still maintaining the high quality we strive for. We provide a selection of package deals, one off specials & the odd ex-display in our Discount Corner, all at great low prices. Check out our ‘Special Offers’ page to see some of the deals we have available at the moment.
In 1998 we extended our displays once again, this time adding our ‘Gallery’, so named as this long room had the feeling of an art Gallery with our lovely selection of prints & mirrors which complemented the stunning range of marble, wood & cast iron fireplaces. In early 2016, this room had a full makeover & now features an all new stunning collection of fireplaces & fires including a fabulous wall mounted electric fire, the Radiance, by Gazco and two stunning Montpellier Natural Stone feature fireplaces with live fires and much more.
In 2011 we added our ‘Stove Room’. In here you will find a range of inglenook & solid fuel fireplaces plus a great collection of gas, electric, wood-burning & multi-fuel stoves & insets. Combined with our wealth of knowledge & expertise in these fields, you are sure to find just what you are looking for in our showroom.
We continue to make improvements to the showroom, updating decor and changing displays to suit trends, although many of our stunning fireplaces are pretty much timeless classics!
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you will be inspired to visit our showroom, very soon, where a warm welcome awaits you.
