Texture twist. You can use texture when combining a fireplace and television on the same wall. The extra texture actually makes the components subtler; the eye skims over the TV and fireplace instead focusing on the wood stone and cubbies. Even if your fireplace is front and center you can camouflage it by using the same neutral colors for the firebox as the surrounding stone.
Tile. Is there anything more serene than a fireplace at the foot of the tub? Glass tile in a camel color transports this fireplace to a transitional style. The niche above the fireplace serves as a great place for vignettes photos and other accessories for ambience.
The fireplace has been the most prominent architectural element in the home for centuries. It can be designed in just about any configuration using a world of materials. From the height of the firebox opening to the shape of the hearth to incorporating mantels and lighting the most distinctive detail remains what we choose to cover it with. Take a look at some of the most popular materials that designers are using.
Side by side. This design works magic as both elements stand side by side in perfect harmony. The television and the firebox are similar in size which helps to balance out each other’s weight on the wall. The materials provide contrast while still tying into the rest of the home’s design. If concrete isn’t the right finish for your fireplace surround try a gray-colored tile to create the same effect.
Think beyond straight lines and boxes. This open fire pit design allows for the chimney to do double duty as a large industrial sculpture.
Ceramic and glass tiles. Individual ceramic or glass tiles are a definite win on any fireplace surround. They’re available in many colors and shapes so the design options are endless. Can vary greatly; around $2.000 to $5.000 for tile and professional installation.
