Electric Fireplace Design: Your Room Never Looked Better
Electric fireplaces are so versatile that using them as the focal point of a room design is a simple task. Since they can be mounted on a wall, flush to the floor or even in a nook, they are adaptable to a range of styles, including classic, contemporary and anything in between.
Installing an electric fireplace in a wall allows you to enhance it with other materials that give it the feel of a traditional fireplace. Flanking the fireplace with stone or ceramic tiles or wooden bookcases is one way to achieve this. Another way is to add a hearth or a mantel shelf. A hearth gives you the option of adding seating. A mantel gives you the option of decorating with traditional pieces such as collections, photos and knick- knacks.
Give a room a contemporary feel by highlighting the fireplace with accent lightning. Install floating glass shelves above or below the fireplace or on either side. Use them to display one or two select pieces of art or sculpture. Painting the wall the fireplace is on in fresh colors that contrast or compliment the room’s color palate creates a bold modern design.
Turn any room into cozy retreat
Creating a focal point in another room besides the family room with the fireplace. A corner wall or alcove in a bedroom is a great place to build a cozy retreat. Position the fireplace low and add recessed lighting or wall lightening to create an intimate reading or conversation area. A bathroom with a large soaking tub is an ideal place to position an electric fireplace. Using a double-sided fireplace between two rooms creates a nice barrier, in addition to an eye-catching visual display for both rooms.
