For a more global, Old World, and/or organic living room, consider omitting the fireplace gate altogether in favor of some decorative concrete posts. Although you’ll need to research safety considerations (e.g., young children, pets, floating spark possibilities, etc.) before incorporating this fireplace arrangement, the look really is stunning.
Modern fireplaces can adapt to every style and covey every message: they can be your ‘valuable antique’ or your ‘futuristic accessory’, and they can be placed wherever you need them. There is the room divider fireplace which adds coziness to an open plan house. A cozy round fireplace can be placed in the corner of a small living room, adding a subtle warmth to cold winter nights.
In a living room filled (literally) with natural light and a bright wall color, darker marble tiles on the fireplace surround are stunning. The tiles’ reflective properties enhance the window lighting, and, despite the fact that the tiles are dark, they make the room feel even brighter.
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.
