Fireplaces are often the focal point of the living room. Beautiful fireplaces can be a great conversation piece and have the power to be a conversation piece as well; however, they are completely unappealing as they fail to provide a genuine focal point.
As you are preparing to redecorate your home and give it a better space hierarchy, here are some tips and ideas to improve your fireplace area.
Firstly, consider the design of your fireplace. There is no need to choose a plain square or square it is common to use square fires for contemporarily styled homes. However, if your home is of a more elegant and chic feel, then long rectangular fireplaces are always the best choice.
Take a step back in decorating your fireplace area. By having a picturesque fireplace you will be able to appreciate the beauty of your fireplace from the moment you step through the hearth. For homes that have a high vantage point over the fireplace, a fireplace that sits directly low can provide a fabulous view.
Update your hearth color to give your fireplace a new look. Too many colors of firewood, and your room will suffer. To give the room a unique look try, take a look at your hearth color – lighter tones work beautifully in a fireplace to create a warmer atmosphere.
