Whether you’re looking for a minimalist floating beam to style a modern fireplace or a traditional barn timber full of character we can help.

Depending on your stove or fireplace layout there are a few building regulations to bear in mind when selecting your beam.  It’s important to make sure that there is at least 450mm or 18 inches between the top of your stove and anything combustible if your stove projects from the front of your fireplace.

Resin based products are available if you’re looking for something non-combustible, or if your stove is tucked underneath your chimney without protruding into the room there are a wide range of solid wood options to consider*.

Bright or light colours pair well with bleached wooden beams, with darker, richer shades working well with velvets or leather interiors. Sharp, clean cut beams offer a modern look with distressed oak finishes available for a more characterful interior.

*It’s always a good idea to consult your stove installer to make sure your beam adheres to building regulations for your property.
