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.
Finished steel. This example shown here is described as having a blued finish. This is not paint but an actual finish process. It’s a great-looking detail for a modern or transitional space. $5.000 to $8.000 for raw materials custom fabrication finishing and installation.
Concrete. A favorite of eclectic and industrial styles raw concrete is durable and different. Aim for this sturdy solution when you want an edgy outside-the-box look. Using exposed hardware to adhere the concrete panels to the fireplace adds a small detail that makes a big difference.
I love a good fireplace. If you are a member of the always-cold club you know what I’m talking about. Sitting in front of a roaring fire is my idea of cozy. Whether you love the smell and crackle of a wood-burning fireplace or the ease of a gas-burning one choosing the right facing is a big decision.
Make it sculptural. One of the great advantages to using a prefabricated metal fireplace and metal chimney is the ability to place a hearth just about anywhere in the home and treat it as a sculpture.
When it comes to fireboxes homeowners seem to be gravitating to fire ribbons — gas flames that are wide but shallow appearing literally as ribbons of fire. The look is contemporary but minimalist with no faux logs. Instead flames rise from rock sand or glass. The idea isn’t to provide the illusion of a wood-burning fireplace just to add the warmth and beauty of a flickering flame.
