The living room is the heart of the home, and we all need a little fire in the heart. That’s why it’s always great to have a nice fireplace in our recreation areas. It can be a traditional wood-burning fireplace, or a more modern alternative that works on gas, or even an electric unit – all of these will definitely add more design value to your interior space.
A fireplace will naturally become a main focal point for the whole room, so it’s important that it’s designed accordingly.
It should stand out as an important design element and should look consistent with the overall interior style at the same time. Stone cladding, marble tiling and brick finishes are all great material choices. Regular wall paint in a neutral or accent color is sometimes also worth considering.
Finally, a little bit of decorating should take place to take your design to the next level. One thing you could do is hang a wall art piece over the fireplace – a painting, a clock or even a mirror will do just fine. Or you can decorate your mantelpiece with a fine selection of accessories – vases, candles, photo frames, personal souvenirs… Basically, anything to your liking will do the trick.
