Not only does a contemporary fireplace instantly become a breathtaking focal point for any room, but with new advances in energy efficiency, they have never been so cost-effective. Many people are choosing to go with direct-vent fireplaces, or have direct-vent inserts placed in their existing fireplaces. These direct vents remove the combustible elements of a fire while still retaining warmth and radiating heat. They are a great, eco-friendly way to get the most out of your fireplace. The best part is, they work with just about any design!
For nearly a decade Kate, an avid renovator and decorator, has been dishing out expert interior design advice on her blog Centsational Style. Here she shares how this fireplace built in the 1980s was made over with beautiful patterned cement tile. It took 34, eight-inch square tiles to get the job done with the help of 1/4 inch spaces. Before getting started she removed the original drywall mantel. After installing the new tile, she added a new wood mantel.
Fireplaces can fit into any space. Wood can create a classic library fireplace, a modern hearth or a transitional focal point. Stone can be smooth, rough, stacked or fitted. It can retain its natural finish or get a coat of paint. Color contrast creates drama.
