The fireplace is often the focal point of a room, so it’s only natural to pay it special attention when revamping your décor. Unless your room is associated with an era of vintage décor or design, an older fireplace can make your setting look dated or out of step with other decorative features. Even so, you can makeover your fireplace to create a dramatic new look for this decorative yet functional feature. Use the following ideas to enhance the look of your mantelpiece and fireplace.
You can have your fireplace make a dramatic statement for your living space by adding height to your mantel. In fact, you can even extend your fireplace mantel to the ceiling. You can add matching trim to your fireplace and mantel to tie both features together. These pieces can also be painted a bright neutral shade or a shade that contrasts to surrounding walls. If your space has high ceilings, this type of grand fireplace will easily complement the look of your setting.
If you have an old brick fireplace, you can give it a makeover that can change the look of your entire room. You can add neutral tile to your fireplace to create a sophisticated look for this feature. Tile is easy to maintain and keep clean, but it also boasts an attractive, trend-right look that is sure to ramp up the look of a tired fireplace. When it comes to tile, you’ll have a fantastic selection to choose from. Our contractors can install new tile efficiently and professionally.
Natural brick can be beautiful but it can also appear dated and dark. If you want to brighten up your setting, consider painting the brickwork of your fireplace to transform its appearance. If you want to add a contemporary twist to your fireplace, consider adding stainless features that will update its overall look.
Not everyone is into contemporary looks for their setting. If you want to invoke a traditional design aesthetic, consider installing an antique mantel. You can find mantels at salvage centers, antique stores, and online auction sites. You can also purchase new mantels in traditional and retro-inspired styles that can enhance the look of your living room, den, bedroom, or any other room of your home.
