Putting thin porcelain slabs on fireplace walls is an increasingly popular trend in modern home decor. This practice involves using slender pieces of porcelain to cover the surfaces surrounding the fireplace, creating an elegant and sleek look. The process requires a skilled contractor, such as Lemberg Stone Inc, due to the delicate nature of the porcelain slabs. These slabs are not only thin but also need precise fabricating and cutting to accommodate specific dimensions, including the unique contours around fireplaces, accommodating for outlets for televisions, power, media, as well as ventilation systems.

Toronto Porcelain Fireplace Wall in Toronto Homes

The use of porcelain slabs in Toronto homes has become relevant for several reasons. Firstly, it provides a high-end finish that significantly enhances the aesthetic appeal of a house. Porcelain slabs come in a variety of designs and finishes, allowing for customization that fits different interior design themes. Secondly, despite its luxurious appearance, porcelain is often more cost-effective than other high-end materials, making it a practical investment for homeowners looking to elevate their home’s value and appearance.

Consider Other Natural Stones and Manufactured Slabs

Beyond porcelain, other materials such as natural stone and quartz are also popular choices for fireplace surrounds. Like porcelain, these materials require expert fabrication and installation due to their unique properties. Natural stone offers a classic, timeless look, while quartz is known for its durability and wide range of colors and patterns.

When selecting materials for a fireplace wall, both functionality and aesthetic appeal are important. Here are two excellent choices:

  1. Porcelain: Porcelain is an increasingly popular choice for fireplace walls due to its durability, heat resistance, and low maintenance. One of its key advantages is its thin profile, which makes it easier to install and handle compared to thicker materials. Porcelain tiles come in a wide range of designs, including those that mimic the look of natural stone or wood, offering flexibility in design while providing the practical benefits of heat resistance and ease of cleaning.
  2. Marble: Marble is a classic and elegant choice, often associated with luxury and timeless beauty. It’s heat resistant and can withstand the temperatures typically encountered around a fireplace. Marble‚Äôs unique veining and array of colors add an element of sophistication to any space. However, it’s worth noting that marble requires more maintenance than porcelain, as it’s more porous and susceptible to staining. It also tends to be heavier and might need additional support during installation.
  3. Quartz: While quartz countertops are popular, using quartz for a fireplace wall can be tricky. It’s durable and comes in a variety of designs, but it’s not the best choice for high-heat areas. The resin components in quartz can be damaged by excessive heat, leading to discoloration and structural weakness. It’s more suited for areas around the fireplace that don’t get excessively hot.
  4. Quartzite: Quartzite is a great option for fireplace walls. It’s a natural stone that’s harder and more heat resistant than its counterpart, quartz. Unlike quartz, quartzite does not contain resins that can be damaged by heat, making it a durable choice for areas exposed to heat. It also offers a unique aesthetic with its natural veining and color variations, similar to marble.
  5. Granite: Granite is an excellent choice for fireplace surrounds due to its heat resistance and durability. It can withstand high temperatures without damage, making it ideal for use around a fire. Granite also comes in a wide range of colors and patterns, providing versatility in design. Like quartzite, it’s a natural stone, so each piece is unique, adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to your fireplace area.

Colors and Aesthetics of Fireplaces Walls

When it comes to selecting color schemes and patterns for these slabs, there is a broad spectrum to choose from. Options like the “book match” pattern, where two mirror-image slabs create a continuous, symmetrical design, are particularly popular for creating a dramatic and high-end look. More natural and subtle patterns are also available for a less pronounced but equally elegant style. The color and pattern selection can significantly influence the overall ambiance of a room, complementing a range of interior styles from minimalist and contemporary to traditional and rustic.

Installation of Fireplace Surrounds – Porcelain, Quartz and other Material


Installing a porcelain fireplace surround is a delicate process that involves several steps to ensure both aesthetic appeal and safety. Here’s an outline of the typical process:

  1. Initial Consultation and Design Selection: The process often starts with a consultation to discuss the client’s vision, preferences in size, color, and pattern. Measurements of the fireplace area are taken to ensure a perfect fit.
  2. Material Selection: In this phase, you select the porcelain slab. In Toronto, there’s a wide variety of suppers in Vaughan and Concord area which provide slabs of different size, color, and pattern. Porcelain slabs can mimic the look of natural stone, wood, or even have intricate designs.
  3. Fabrication: Once the porcelain slab is selected, it must be fabricated to the exact dimensions of the fireplace area. This includes cutting the slabs to size and making any necessary cutouts for things like outlets or vents.
  4. Surface Preparation: The area around the fireplace needs to be properly prepared. This includes cleaning and ensuring the wall surface is flat and ready to support the porcelain slabs. On new construction this may involve building fireplace walls from scratch, which we at Lemberg Stone Inc can also provide this service for you.
  5. Installation: The slabs are carefully installed around the fireplace. This involves applying a suitable adhesive, placing the slabs precisely, and ensuring they are properly aligned and level. Spacing for grout (if used) is also considered. Some fireplaces in rooms which are open to above and very high may require additional safety or epoxies to be secured properly.
  6. Grouting and Sealing (if necessary): Some porcelain installations might require grouting, especially if there are small gaps. After grouting, the area is cleaned, and a sealant may be applied to protect the surface.
  7. Finishing Touches: This includes cleaning the installed surface and inspecting the work to ensure everything is perfect.

Customization options in Toronto for porcelain fireplace surrounds include:

  • Size: You can choose slabs of various sizes, depending on the size of your fireplace and the impact you want to make. Large format slabs are popular for a more seamless, modern look.
  • Color: The color options are vast, ranging from natural stone looks to bold, solid colors or even patterns that mimic other materials like wood.
  • Pattern: Patterns can range from simple, solid colors to intricate designs. This includes natural stone patterns, geometric designs, or custom prints. Some people prefer the book-matched pattern for a dramatic effect, where two mirrored slabs create a continuous design.
