In many homes, the fireplace serves as the focal point of the living room. This is especially true throughout the holiday season, when house guests and family come to visit during cooler weather. With the holidays just around the corner, could your fireplace use some updating or a complete remodel? If so, here are 7 popular fireplace styles to consider:
Stacked stone fireplaces are probably the most popular request from our clients. The earthy, rustic look adds unique texture and warmth to a room. With all of the different types of stone available, it’s easy to find one to fit your interior style.
To create a timeless and vintage look to your fireplace, brick is a great option. It can be selected to match the exterior brick of your home, or it can be painted for a more polished look. If you already have a brick fireplace, just replacing the mantle can provide an easy update without losing the character provided by the original bricks. For a little flair, stone accents can be added.
For a really strong focal point, a copper fireplace is the way to go. Copper is very unique and serves as an immediate attention grabber. Copper fireplaces fit well with most interior styles and décor.
- Stone Tile
Slate, Travertine, Sandstone, Marble and Granite are all great fireplace options if you’re looking for a more uniform way to incorporate stone into your living room. Stone tiles are less rustic than stacked stone and offer a more modern feel.
Tile around the fireplace can really add a pop of color and texture to a room! With all the colors, patterns and shapes available, your refinished fireplace can be either subtle or show-stopping. Choosing tile as your fireplace material provides an excellent opportunity to create a truly one-of-a-kind design.
‘Cold’ and ‘boring’ may be the words that come to mind when many people think of concrete, but this material is quickly becoming a popular trend among homeowners. Everything from counter tops to sinks to flooring is being finished with concrete, making it a stylish option for your fireplace. Not a fan of the plain gray? No worries! Concrete can also be stamped or stained in a variety of ways, allowing for creativity and customization.
If your home has a more traditional theme, a molded fireplace is for you! With many different styles, molded fireplace surrounds can easily add a sense of class and elegance to a room without over doing it.
