Its difficult to find a more natural and stunningly beautiful material than natural wood. Exuding a warming feel and being an entirely natural product, no pieces of solid oak timber are ever the same - grain patterns and colour tones are testament to this.
For centuries solid oak has been used for construction and in the manufacture of products designed for the home, tables, chairs, fireplaces, flooring - the list is endless. Complete homes have been built with solid timber and it comes as no surprise that a natural solid timber fireplace is often the centrepiece of any home - it has a structural integrity to it.Of course, there's the sustainability aspect to timber. Making sure the use of this wonderful material doesn't have a negative impact on our earth is crucial - we want our trees and timber to be around for a very long time. That's why the FSC do a remarkable job of promoting responsible management of the world's forests.
Katell ensures its timber is sourced from FSC Approved suppliers who use certified and well-managed forests. When a Katell timber surround finds its way into our customers hands, they can be confident they are helping to protect the planet.
Of course, its not just about the timber itself but what you can do with it. Trained timber craftsmen can work wonders and with the use of modern machinery, intricate shapes can be created. By working with the natural wood fibres, timber can be carved to create stunning furniture which will last years and provide huge enjoyment.Katell's range of timber fireplaces is testament to this. From traditional to contemporary, there is a choice of solid timber fireplaces that will grace your home interior for many years.
Although there are many modern alternatives to timber fireplaces, its difficult to argue against the warmth and natural beauty of a real timber fireplace.
