Making your home your own involves more than just color schemes or decorating. There are innovative ways to make your home an engaging reflection of who you are without extensive remodeling. One opportunity may lay in that fireplace you loved so much when first seeing your home. Fireplace mantels and fireplace surrounds are an excellent way to add a special touch.
Fireplaces are often the centerpiece of a living room and add nice resale value. Understandably, they’re also subject to safety regulations, making a DIY mantel or surround project a dangerous idea. The combination of wood, stone, design, texture, and color are endless. Having experienced craftsman and designers put these elements together ensures the best outcome.
Fireplace Surround and Fireplace Mantel Design
A fireplace surround can offer even more opportunity to reflect who you are from a design perspective. And your mantel or surround doesn’t have to be complicated or ornate to reflect who you are. Choose minimalist or monochromatic for an understated, clean and modern mantel. Or be creative with brick, stone, wood, stain or paint colors. Most of us have entered a room and instantly had a feeling that you can’t really describe. Spaces in your home can evoke certain feelings like safety or comfort. Those feelings often stem from layered textures as well as other design elements.
Fireplace mantels and surrounds can be just a simple surface or as important as family heirlooms. Some evoke feelings and memories of the past. Come visit us at Heartland Designs to have our experienced craftsman capture your desires in a custom fireplace mantel for your home.
