Modern Fireplace Designs
Fireplaces are one of the most commonly outdated features within a home. Sometimes a home that has been renovated, remodeled, or redecorated will still have the same fireplace that it had when the house was first built. Changing the appearance of a fireplace can give a room the cohesion that it may be lacking.
Placing a mirror above a fireplace can eliminate wasted wall space, all the while adding a tasteful contemporary feature to the room. Don’t forget to have some fun in selecting a mirror; there are many impressive and unexpected mirror designs to choose from.
The modern use of black slate can add drama to a fireplace, making it a focal point. Painting the area surrounding the fireplace can cleverly compliment the dark slate. Arranging candles inside of a fireplace or around the base can help you add warmth and personal style.
Adding mosaic tile to a fireplace is a perfect way to tie in colors from the rest of the home and add a personal touch. You can choose to cover the fireplace evenly with all of the same types of tiles, or even mix and match different sizes and shades to achieve a funky or ornate effect.
Any of these fireplaces could help give your home a makeover, as well as enrich the overall style of a room.
