Decorative Fireplaces That Turn Up the Heat and Add Style to Your Home

Decorative Fireplaces That Turn Up the Heat and Add Style to Your Home

It’s now February, also known as “love month”. So, let’s turn up the heat with decorative fireplaces that not only add warmth and style to your home, they also add charm to your living area. Many homeowners are now coordinating their fireplaces with the style of their home. And, with many fireplaces now being gas, the tile surrounding them is more decorative than being essential to fireplace safety.

Keep in mind, when adding tile around the wall of your decorative fireplaces, you can transform it to become a focal point of the room. Your tile choice will set the mood you want to create in the room.

When it comes to decorating the surrounding area of a fireplace, you can use slate, marble and even ceramic tile. If you prefer a more rustic style to your home, you can use split faced ledger stone or slate. This is considered an architectural tile. For those homeowners that prefer a more classic look, there’s the options of marble, ceramic and/or porcelain tile.
