FIREPLACES made from railway sleepers
Are you thinking of making a railway sleeper fire suround? Few things beat a roaring open fire on a cold winters evening, except of course sitting in front of a blazing fire framed by a beautiful unique railway sleeper fire surround which you've just made. A kind of double pleasure! Here is a selection of inspiring and wonderful fireplaces made both from new & used railway sleepers, that have been sent in from people around the world. It is inspiring & illuminating to see what people have created & to hear of their struggles or achievements. It's not necessarily about wanting to copy what they've done - more about the chance to pick up great ideas and designs.
New & used railway sleepers are excellent for creating dramatic fireplace surrounds, lintels and mantel pieces, whether you want a rustic, weathered look or a more contemporay, modern feel. Using any untreated new railway sleeper is fine, however If you decide you like the look of the old reclaimed railway sleepers, then you need to chose the non-creosote treated types, like the tropical hardwood, Australian Jarrah or African Azobe. It will be great to see what fireplace YOU finally plan, and what YOU manage to create! Show us your 'before' and 'after' pictures. Tell us how it went. What you are pleased with as well as yeverything you learned along the way. Dare to share your railway sleeper fireplace online!
