Gather Round: Fireplace Design in Your New Home or Whole Home Remodel

As autumn holidays approach, the appeal of a warm and glowing fireplace grows stronger, even here in sunny San Diego. If you’re planning to include a fireplace design in your new home or whole home remodel, here are some examples for inspiration.

High Tech Focal Point
In this contemporary home near the ocean, a gorgeous surround in a substantial hi-tech LED backlit onyx above the fireplace highlights the screen where the wife’s photography is displayed when the tv is not in use. Below the hearth, an LED lighting system glows with alternating colors.

Color and Texture
Three materials were selected to create this fireplace composition in a colorful Mid-Century inspired home. The textured oversized tiles evoke the look of wallpaper, with a barely visible grout to create a bold, uniform surface. The duct is in porcelain with the appearance of stone. The orange hearth on the bottom of the fireplace creates a strong base without overpowering the room.

Not Just for Living Rooms
In the master bedroom of a Modern Farmhouse, the fireplace adds to a sense of luxurious retreat. Wrapping the fireplace in Arbutus stone to the ceiling makes a bold design statement accentuated with a reclaimed wood mantle.

Add glowing comfort to your whole home remodel or new home design with the help of a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals. Together you can explore the materials, scale, and style that make sense for a fireplace design you will want to gather around in any weather.
