Your fireplace is the focal point of your living area, which makes it a central gathering space when the holidays come around. If your fireplace is looking drab and you need some yuletide inspiration to keep it looking great, a makeover might be the answer. From the design of the fireplace itself to how you decorate your mantle, let’s take a look at a few festive ways to revamp your fireplace in time for the holiday season with stone and tile from Arizona Tile.
White as Snow
To get that rustic-chic look, try incorporating white paint into your fireplace design. A couple coats of white paint is a great way to give an old wooden mantle a facelift, and you can modernize outdated brick in the same way.
If your fireplace hearth is showing its age, it might be time to replace it with a modern material. Durable porcelain tile is an ideal option, and today you can find porcelain in a huge variety of finishes and colors, including tile that looks like brick or cement. Choose a tile or stone type that reflects your personal style and coordinates with your home design, from timeless natural stone stack to contemporary whitewashed brick-look porcelain.
For a more subtle, rustic feel, deck your halls and fireplace with décor that’s repurposed from nature. Instead of tinsel and Christmas balls, aim for a softer, woodsy aesthetic with real or faux branches, pine.
If your fireplace still has its original surround, you may feel it’s time for an update. Whether you’re faced with crumbling brick or an outdated style, the approaching holiday season is the perfect reason for a bit of sprucing up. Depending on the style you want to achieve, potential fireplace surround materials range from classic marble to natural stone to brick-look tile, vein cut limestone and more.
A Custom Touch
As the focal point of your living room, there’s no better place to add a custom-designed mosaic than your fireplace. Unveil your unique creation at your next holiday party for extra impact.
Whether you want to renovate your fireplace from mantle to hearth or simply add a bit of festive flair to its design, these are just a few ideas for giving the holiday season a warm welcome.
