New Fireplace Design Ideas for your Renovation
A fireplace renovation is a great way to add value to your home. In fact, a fireplace renovation has the highest return on your investment of any home renovation. Adding a second or third fireplace to your home can significantly increase its value.
If you are looking for renovation ideas, you have come to the right place. Below we have listed some popular Spring fireplace renovation trends/ideas.
Uniform, clean lines directly to the roof create a stunning visual throughout the entire room. Try creating a large centrepiece to your room with beautiful tile, wood, or wallpaper. Many of today’s modern fireplaces can be finished in virtually any material – directly to the edge of the fireplace. This allows you to create a floor to ceiling accent all in one material and gives a modern look guaranteed to age well. Take a look at your home – do you have extra high ceilings? If so you may want to adapt this style as the higher the ceiling the bigger the visual impact and the more it transforms a room.
To the Window...To the Wall!
Wall to wall shelving units are very popular right now. Incorporating a fireplace in the middle is super trendy and adds extra functionality where none existed before. Instead of wasted wall space utilize that extra real-estate to build something beautiful and practical. Turn your whole wall into an accent piece and extend the visual of the fireplace from wall to wall.
Brighter, Brighter, Brightest!
The more natural light the better! Keep your room very bright with large windows. Large modern fireplaces look fantastic in rooms with large windows and plenty of natural light. Natural light helps accentuate the fireplace and showcase its beauty even when it’s not lit! If you are adding a new fireplace to a room (instead of renovating an existing fireplace) consider placing it near your windows.
White, Neutrals and Lights
White offers a fantastic contrast to the dark outline of a firebox. Our eyes are naturally drawn to the darkest features in a room. When planning your renovation considering using white accent pieces, white paint, or adding a white mantel/surround to truly help the fireplace pop!
To go along with the brightness, try adding light greys and neutral colours in the room to create a relaxed modern look. Adding lights to frame your fireplace or to highlight the fireplace is a relatively new trend that we love! This look can be achieved in many ways but helps to highlight the fireplace and hearth even more. Try adding new pot lights or spotlights for a feature/accent lighting theme or add hidden LED strips around the outside of your hearth for a beautiful light frame and an ultra-modern feel.
