Simply put, stone fireplaces consist of either manufactured or natural materials. This surround renovation by the duo behind Chris loves Julia incorporates the latter. The stacked stone ledgers are strips of dark, charcoal marble glued to interlocking panels for easy installation. For drama, the fireplace goes up to the ceiling. As a result, the stunning stonework draws the eyes upward making the average sized room feel ginormous and airy. Capping off the remodel is the live-edge wood mantel that beautifully complements the textured marble.
A monochromatic theme creates a calm peaceful feeling. Tile offers a completely custom look that can blend with the background or create a brilliant focus. Straight lines, curves, carvings and rustic wood, mix and match as you please. You can find something to fit your decor among these fireplace design ideas.
Concrete, granite, steel, and distressed wood are just a few popular materials adopted for the nouveau fireplace, with each module selected to compliment the interior setting. Inlaid or attached, modern fireplaces can accommodate entertainment systems or punctuate works of art, further allowing them to blend with one`s home and sensibilities, rather than stand apart from them.
And while many homes built during certain periods feature built-in fireplaces, they may require an update to keep with the times and one`s personal needs.
