Use a metal chimney with any style. Though more commonly used and associated with a modern aesthetic a metal chimney flue can be used in any room where a more open and light-filled space is desired.
Painted brick. An option I have used often painted brick works every time. If you are longing to update your old red brick but are short on budget paint your brick. Any color can work but white works with so many different styles. Modern rustic and coastal all work with a painted fireplace. If the bricks are being installed new your project can cost $2.000 to $5.000 for raw materials and installation. (Read this before attempting it yourself though).
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.
Many of the new prefabricated metal fireboxes don't even require a chimney. Only if the fireplace is meant to be wood burning is there a need to vent smoke up and out. If it's solely a gas-burning fireplace a direct vent (directly outside behind the fireplace) or a no-vent solution works just fine.
Sometimes the best way to deal with these two focal points is to separate them. This design makes great use of an angled wall while still making it easy to enjoy the fireplace and the TV at the same time. Connect your fireplace mantel visually to the main shelving. In a design like the one shown here you also could carry over all three shelves to create a triple mantel.
Putting a television and fireplace on the same wall requires a delicate balance. These two focal points need a precise plan for them to feel warm and welcoming instead of out of balance or out of scale. Be careful to consider the size of each when figuring out which layout works best for your home. Whether you choose to have them over and under or side by side some of these winning fireplace and television combinations could help you find a truly harmonious look.
