The fireplace is often the most commanding element in any room it’s in. Size and abundance of material are often factors but as renovation specialist Ron Parko points out our eyes are naturally drawn to the darkest object in a room anyway.

The untouched brick adds a more textural contrast to a freshly painted mantel and surround. Forgo white or off-white; paint your fireplace surround a bold color and watch your room transform from good to great.

Sort your seating. What good is a home cinema without cinema-quality seating? With a home control system and D-Box technology you can have your seating rumble and vibrate in time with the action up on the big screen! Another option to consider especially if the room will be used by children is soundproofing. Not only does soundproofing mean you can turn up the volume; it also ensures that the little ones’ shouts of excitement won’t be heard by anyone next door.
