Not ready for a new fireplace? You can still get in on this year`s hot refinishing trend. If you already have a fireplace, consider refinishing your existing hearth to instantly update the look of a room. If you`re suffering from cold chimney draft, install a wood, gas or pellet fireplace insert for instant warmth, added style and a reduced monthly home heating bill.
If you`ve been looking for a commanding way to update any room in your home, a new fireplace is a fantastic place to start. They aren`t just for living rooms anymore, either. It`s becoming quite popular to have fireplaces in the kitchen, the bedroom, even home offices. Really, a fireplace will work in any space you spend a lot of time living in.
Nothing screams cozy quite like snuggling up in a blanket next to a toasty fire on a cold winter day. If you`re looking to bring the hearth into your home, or simply revamp your fireplace, these Dering Hall designs are the perfect inspiration.
The black metal and exposed chimney of this modern fireplace design lend themselves well to a 60`s-inspired room. When set against a large picture window, the boxy frame is echoed perfectly, giving a sense of continuity without being too uniform, as well as offering a welcoming view when the weather gets a bit too dreary. The stark black metal can seem a bit harsh in a smaller space, so complement a fireplace like this with low, angular furniture to make the room seem taller, and bright splashes of color to update its retro-chic feel.
