I like open brickwork. It's almost maintenance free as well :)

A huge improvement B.G. Do you use the wood burner very often?

We have a fireplace built with Yorkstone and that's just about maintenance free too. I just run the vacuum over it to collect the dust now and again.

The trick with stone/brick is to give it a layer or two of clear matt varnish
