Winter will be here soon and there is no better time to install or upgrade your fireplace for a cosier interior to suit the season. Here is an amazing variety of cladding options with different designs to choose from, to help create a stylish fireplace. Let’s review…
Stone clad fireplaces are timeless classics, which is usually suitable for most interiors – such a fireplace will add texture to space, make it cozier and more interesting. Cabins, chalets, rustic and even modern spaces look great with stone-clad fireplaces. It can be a built-in or a double-sided fireplace, and the stone to cladding is up to you – large and different pieces or something more regular. You can also go for cladding a fireplace with bricks and give them a look that fits your interior.
Cladding a fireplace with metal is a bold modern idea that guarantees safety. It can be galvanized steel or shiny copper – it’s up to you and your interior. You can also make a bold statement with a dark metal fireplace that will stand out more than any other feature. Such fireplaces are awesome for industrial and masculine interiors, they will also stand out in modern and minimalist spaces.
We can’t say that wood is the most popular material for cladding a fireplace because it’s not that safe and fits in only some cases. For example, you can cover the fireplace with stone and then continue with matching wood and an electric or ethanol fireplace can be covered with wood if it’s not too close to the part that gathers heat.
Tiles are the second most popular material for cladding a fireplace after stone and brick. Modern tiles can imitate wood and metal if you want or catch an eye with some interesting patterns. The tiles can be dark to make the fireplace stand out, or white or neutral ones if they fit your space. Look at the ideas to get inspired!
