Hi,

I've just moved in to a Victorian terrace, and have (tonight) taken out the repulsive gas fire from the dining-room. What's left is the rather nice (paintable) interior of the chimney, a paintable (plain) wood suround (and mantlle) and a repulsive (but probably expensive) black/speckled hearth.

I don't intend to use the fire-place for fires, but as a decorative feature.

What's the simplest/best way to cover a marble hearth?

Is there a way to tile on polished marble?

the marble doesn't extend into the cavity of the fire-place, so keeping it (shudder) isn't an option.

Cheers!

Adam

if you really abrade the surface with a heavyish sand paper and use a good quality tile adhesive should do the trick. Ask your local, good quality tile shop (not tiles are us) numpties.
