Raw concrete is all the rage in the industrial style, and its use as a fireplace surround and mantel face is en pointe here. Although the contrast between the harsh concrete and the tree branches overhead is impactful, if you’re unable to incorporate the natural look in this way, the concrete fireplace itself would be an eye-catcher in any space.
While many people opt for ‘centralized’ positioning, corners seem to be a bit underused. However, corners are able to accommodate both traditional and modern fireplaces. All you need to do is to calculate the size, and to find a fireplace which actually fits the corner.
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.
For a completely modern aesthetic, place a narrow, long fireplace below knee height. This stone example is a stunner, juxtaposing fantastically against the smooth, grey wall above. Of course, you’ll need to consider the room’s use – the presence of young children and pets might put this design on the backburner.
