The hearth is the center of your home, and it’s a great place to show your personal interior design style! There are thousands of different fireplace remodel ideas, mantel designs, surround materials, and color combinations you can choose from to make your fireplace look uniquely yours.
Here are a few ideas for your next fireplace remodel to inspire your creativity.
Shiplap Electric Fireplace Surround
Shiplap is a popular material in interior designs right now, and we see it used for electric fireplace surrounds a lot. It creates a comfortable, down-to-earth farmhouse vibe. Keep in mind that this material is generally not safe to use around a gas or wood-burning fireplace.
Marble Fireplace Remodel Ideas
Don’t want an overly casual living room? There’s nothing like marble to level up your space! Marble is an eye-catching material that can make for an impressive fireplace surround.
Contrasting Materials, Colors, and Shapes
Unique material or color combinations and modern shapes can make for a stunning fireplace unlike anyone else’s. Your fireplace remodel is a great time to show your artistic vision.
White-washed fireplaces are very popular in design magazine right now. Painting over a fireplace is one of the simplest remodels you can do, although once you’ve done it, it’s nearly impossible to go back to the former natural brick look.
Just because everyone else is painting their fireplace white doesn’t mean you have to! Embrace your favorite color and unique sense of style.
Stone facades are classic and still look stylish in our current decade. Whether you use natural stone or manufactured stone, you can build a mantle that feels comfortable, beautiful, and truly timeless.
Floor-to-Ceiling Stacked Tile
Manufactured stone or tilework can be a beautiful, natural-looking material to use around your fireplace. You can choose a classic tile or something more creative — whatever fits your style.
At Four Day Fireplace, we are seeing many requests for designs with either no hearth (the bottom of a traditional fireplace) or a tile that is flush with the ground. This style can be a good choice if you are using your fireplace primarily for decoration and not for burning wood logs.
Black Panels in the Back
Reflective black or matte black panels are a very popular choice for the back of the fireplace right now.
Dual-Sided Fireplace Remodel Ideas
Do you have a complete or partial wall between two important rooms in your home, such as the living room and kitchen? A dual-sided fireplace design lets you enjoy the flames from both rooms. It also reduces the amount of fireplace heat you lose through exterior walls.
Linear Fireplace Remodel Ideas
Linear fireplaces are a great choice for minimalist living rooms and “impact walls”. We often see this style used with electric or gas fireplaces.
Clean Lines and a Small Frame
These days, most of our customers are leaning towards clean lines and smaller frames on their fireplace units. Oversized metal trims are not popular.
You don’t have to go minimalist in your fireplace design. Plenty of people still love ornate and antique details on fireplace mantels! This kind of design works best in homes with classic or transitional interior designs.
Custom Mantel Shelf
A custom shelf above your fireplace is both a functional and beautiful. It’s a great way to draw attention to your fireplace! You can choose whatever shelf design you like and create something you absolutely love.
Floating mantels look like shelves and fit well into more minimalist designs. If you have an electric fireplace, you can even mount a floating TV above your fireplace.
Reclaimed Wood Mantel
Reclaimed wood is beautiful and environmentally friendly. While the idea of reclaimed wood has been around for centuries, top architects and interior designers have made it more popular than ever in recent years. It’s a great choice for your fireplace mantel.
Rustic Log Mantel
A log mantel like this one can make a room feel warm and cozy. Logs are a great way to make your space feel rustic.
Cabinets on Either Side
A pair of cabinets can make for more of a statement wall than just the fireplace itself. Besides, most of us feel like we can never have enough storage space! A fireplace remodel is a great time to add additional shelving, bookshelves, furniture with hidden storage, or cabinets to your living space.
Your television can become a cohesive part of your interior design if you give it a custom frame. With a beautiful frame, your TV looks almost like a piece of art instead of another clunky electronic item.
Stacked Wood Storage
Fireplace wood makes for a beautiful display! Why not incorporate it into your design?
Outdoor Wall Fireplace Remodel Ideas
Who said your fireplace had to be in your living room? Your family and friends will love enjoying a cozy fire when you’re hanging out on the patio, too.
Outdoor Freestanding Fireplace Remodel Ideas
A fireplace doesn’t always have to be attached to a wall! A freestanding fireplace can be a magnificent addition to your outdoor space that all your neighbors will envy.
