When you pick a fireplace, be sure to consider the styling in your home. If you opt more a more classically designed home, you'll want something built with a beautiful wood mantel, and classic fireplace surrounds. You can decorate your fireplace mantel with old-world trinkets and hang art on the wall above.
Likewise, if you've picked a contemporary home, try to find a modern fireplace with trendy panelling or natural stone. These are likely to be built-in to the wall, but you can still have a mantel installed to display art, photo frames, and other items.
When you do your research, make sure you investigate the following designs:
- stone fireplace
- tile fireplace
- brick fireplace
- farmhouse fireplace
- marble fireplace
- wooden fireplace
