Complete cohesion. Place the television directly on top of the fireplace and bring both of these focal draws together by surrounding them with wood and molding details in the same style. Consider painting the backs of flanking bookcases the same color as the fireplace for further design cohesion.
Steel. An entire fireplace wall clad in steel has a commanding presence. The industrial feel goes hand in hand with minimalism for those who love the less-is-more look. Applying texture to this common material during fabrication ensures a unique visual depth.
Copper. I love copper in almost any application but I think it’s especially slick on a fireplace. One of my favorite attributes of copper is the way its finish changes over time. Copper is not only a beautiful facing choice but a conversation piece in any room. $5.000 to $8.000 for materials fabrication and installation.
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.
Think beyond straight lines and boxes. This open fire pit design allows for the chimney to do double duty as a large industrial sculpture.
This living room gets added drama with a white back-painted glass mantel and fireplace surround that replaced a traditional paneled fireplace. The glass-and-metal mantel is kept sleek thanks to minimal accessories. The key here is to vary the height of the accessories to keep the eye moving along the space.
