Fireplaces - should I choose an original or a reproduction?

 

Original or Reproduction - choosing a fireplace

Most people with a traditional home do still prefer an original fireplace.  Here at Strippadoor both old and new fireplaces are priced very similarly.  For instance a reproduction combination fireplace ranges from as little as £680 to around £1500 for the better quality ones.  These prices are very much on a par with our stock of original fireplaces, except in this case the price varies depending on size.  For example a small authentic combination fireplace starts at around £600 and larger ones are  priced at around £1200 -£1500.  So as you can see, pricewise there is no real difference; it's simply that one is original and one is reproduction.  

Occasionally the reproduction can be the better choice: there are certain types of fireplaces that are very hard to find in the original, therefore making them very expensive.  Typically a Georgian or early to mid-Victorian fireplace with an arched insert and a good-sized burning basket is rare, sought after and ultimately expensive. 

At Strippadoor, as well as our extensive range of authentic fireplaces we are also happy to recondition and sell the Stovax range of reproduction fireplaces as they are of very high quality (Stovax have been manufacturing for over 35 years), and missing or damaged parts are still readily available.
