In addition to being a cozy place to gather 'round on
chilly nights, a fireplace serves as the natural design focal point for any room, even when it's unlit. Unless you're designing your room from the ground up, most peole inherit their fireplaces when they move in. However, that doesn't mean they're tied to that style. From choosing a mantel to altering the fireplace surround, there are many ways to make your fireplace uniquely yours. For those who don't have a built-in fireplace, pre-fabricated models (electric, gas, and even wood-burning options are available!) can present some nice options. Whether you're looking for a neutral style that will grow as your decor changes or want to make a dramatic statement, get inspired by some of our favorite designs below!
