If you're remodeling your home, you can use the opportunity to redesign your fireplace. There are so many different options out there, from modern to traditional, simple and eclectic.
Take a look at the following examples and be inspired while choosing a fireplace design that suits your tastes and lifestyle.
No kids? If you don't have children, you can get creative. Check out this ultra-swanky fireplace that burns wood directly on the slate hearth and uses a black steel hood to vent the smoke.
Update an older design. If you live in a home built anywhere from the 60s through the 80s, there's a good chance your fireplace is made of brick or slate-style stones. This look can date your home, especially if you're more of a modernist. Rather than going through the hassle of tearing it all out, paint the fireplace any color and enjoy the immediate update.
Create a peek-through. If your fireplace is the center divider between two living spaces, you can knock out sections of the wall, around the chimney, and create a creative peek-through that creates a feeling of spaciousness while maintaining distinct boundaries.
