If your fireplace isn’t of the type that’s used often (or ever), or if you don’t intend on using it, you can still make this desirable feature a benefit to your overall decor rather than a drawback. Beautiful chunky white candles on coordinating candlesticks, for example, give a nod to the concept of “firelight” while being framed out nicely by the fireplace surround itself.
Install trim around your fireplace that frames the fireplace itself. We love this tiered trimming concept, done in all white like the rest of the room’s walls, as an accentuation of the fireplace itself. Classic and clean architectural detail that packs a punch.
One thing is for sure: fireplaces are no longer limited to stones and bricks! We live in a time where almost every material could be used (glass and marble included). Sometimes, it is just the material that changes fireplaces preserve their original shapes; and the subtle differences in raw material simply adds interest.
Fireplaces themselves can’t be made of wood for obvious reasons. But that doesn’t mean this warm natural material should be avoided altogether. In this stunning fireplace setting, for example, a chunky wood mantel and equally substantial corbels bring warmth and provide a distinct separation between the mantel face and the upper wall.
