It is really hard to find a single person, who has never dreamed of a living room with fireplace. Most of us only think of it and do nothing to make this dream come true.
But what keeps you from finding courage and inspiration to create an ideal room with admirable hearth? So get your thoughts together and begin.
Living room with fireplace – our common dream
Don’t worry if your flat or house isn’t big and wide. Fireplaces can be found not only in mansions.
Sometimes small living room with fireplace looks far from the mark, but it is a question of right positioning and style.
Think through all the details: from position and design of mantelpiece to surroundings. As there is not much space, try to pick a compact mantelpiece and don’t congest it with details.
It goes without saying that decorating living room with fireplace is not less important than setting it.
Try to come up with new ideas, don’t follow cliches like candlestick or family photo in a bright frame.
If you are hunter, hang your rifle or hunting trophy. Some sportsmen and football players put their champion cups on the mantelpiece to show achievements to their visitors.
Symbolic objects may also be used as they have some inner meaning and interesting story about it.
Now you will have at least one topic for discussion with your guests.
Pots with plants look nice, but make sure that heat will not do any harm to them.
In modern hi-tech apartment interior designers decorate living room with tv and fireplace.
TV above brick or stone mantelpiece combines two epochs, two generations: ancient time and modern one.
On the contrary, if your fireplace is electric, with remote control and different heating rates, a TV-set above it will underline the modernity of your flat. Move your sofa in front of it and enjoy your weekends.
