A completely unique and totally stunning fireplace design can be achieved with a creative twist on the surround’s architecture. Incorporate a few angles of varied depths and heights, throw in some spot lighting, and use color blocking to create this perfect modern fireplace.
While it’s not a strategy that alters the actual fireplace, this decorating idea is one that makes sense in nearly any fireplace setting. A large, chunky mirror hung directly above the fireplace provides a vertically balancing force to the lower visual weight that is the fireplace itself. It lightens and brightens the overall look particularly when the fireplace insert is black in a light room.
Got a floating wall that needs some presence? Install a gorgeous two-sided contemporary fireplace on the wall’s end. This will increase the impact of your fireplace because you can enjoy the fire from multiple angles, plus it just creates a natural draw into the room itself.
One fireplace idea that goes against the tide is a beautiful incorporation of backwards thinking. Rather than do anything at all to the fireplace, you could create a similar stunning effect by focusing your efforts on the walls behind and surrounding the fireplace. A simple white fireplace surround, for example, looks awesome against a wood-planked wall.
