Creative Ways to Transform Your Fireplace Into the Focal Point of the Room

By Brian, February 3, 2015

A fireplace is much more than a means of making your home warm and cosy. Of course, that’s a great way to use it. But, if you want to turn your fireplace into the focal point of your home, it can make an excellent alternative to feature wallpaper. In fact, your fireplace should be a source of inspiration to make your home look even more incredible. It’s a fun and quirky space to make your room stand out from the rest.

 

Turn it Into a Whimsical Space

 

Your fireplace is the space to go wild with your imagination. Adding stencils and art above the fireplace and onto the wall is a quirky way to go. Adding decorations to the mantelpiece, as well as wreaths of flowers, can make it look whimsical and alternative. Add mismatching vases and rest mirrors against the wall. It’s a great way to make sure that you have a fun space within your living room, without having to turn to wallpaper.

 Adding a Cute Log Burner

 

Log burners can transform the entire look of the room. What’s more, they can be a great way of making sure that your room remains toasty and warm during the long winter months. Free standing log burners, with a rich black cast iron casing, are the perfect alternative to gas fires. They look incredible, and they radiate warmth at every opportunity. They are incredibly low maintenance too. Simply add firewood, and away you go. There is nothing better than cosying up by a low energy fire that emits beauty into the room.

 

Create a Reading Hub

 

Have you ever seen period dramas? The master or mistress, of the home, is always cosier up by a roaring log fire, complete with a book in hand. So, why not turn your fireplace into a reading hub? Adding bookshelves and freestanding cases by the fire, as well as a comfortable armchair, is an excellent way to ensure that you have a specially designed reading corner. You can add books onto the mantelpiece to create a stunning visual effect. Of course, if you have a non-functional fireplace, you can fill the void with shelves and starting adding books into the space. It looks positively enchanting. But, it’s a fantastic feature within any home.

 

Bring the Outdoors, Inside With Log Displays

 

For non-functional fireplaces, you can still create the illusion of a fireplace, without having to turn it on. Simply fill the space with rows upon rows of high-quality logs. The best way to achieve a cool designer look is to opt for different sized logs. This can ensure that your home has a warm but inviting feel within the fireplace. Adding wood is incredibly eke-friendly and give your home a holistic and natural feel. Adding texture to your home is easy when applying wooden logs to the fireplace.

 

A fireplace can be so much more than a fireplace. It can be a gorgeous feature within any living room. You can have a savvy interior focal point with minimum fuss and expense.
