There is now a plethora of different fireplace types and styles to choose from these days. With so many choices, it can be difficult to determine which style would work best with your home’s existing decor.
Follow along for some tips and tricks by the fireplace design and installation experts at The Stove Shoppe to choose the perfect fireplace for your current aesthetic.
If your home exudes a modern vibe or perhaps it is a new build, it is likely that your want your fireplace to have the same feel. Instead of going for a traditional fireplace with ornate designs or brick, you may opt for your fireplace to feel much more sleek and contemporary. For modern homes, we feel as though linear lines and more modern materials work best. A linear, concrete fireplace is very modern and trendy at the moment!
If you have a more traditional style home, you may choose to go with a more traditional fireplace look. Traditional style fireplaces can have many different looks; one classic is the wood mantel typically comprised of intricate designs. This is a classic, traditional look that will look incredibly elegant in any traditional-style home. The stunning wood mantle is typically surrounded by brick in order to keep this timeless look. Not only is this a beautiful traditional look, but it also serves as a statement piece for any room.
To achieve a rustic look with your fireplace, we recommend using stacked stone to surround your fireplace. You can decide what feel you are trying to achieve with which stones you choose to use. For an even more rustic look, you can choose a stone with rough edges rather than polished. For a rustic mantle, try using a large slab of your favorite wood atop your chosen stone.
