Stone fireplace design options are endless. If you can imagine it, chances are it can be carved in stone. However, the design process can be overwhelming with so many options available. Sometimes it is difficult to hone in on a specific design that will suit your home. Take a look at ways to get inspired to create your dream fireplace.
Where’s the first place you look for fireplace design inspiration? The Internet. Internet searches with millions of random images can be overwhelming. Instead, refine your search for only carved-stone fireplace surrounds by browsing a gallery of stone fireplace images here.
Or, consider using a home design social media platform, like Houzz. Houzz allows users to browse completed home projects based on style, budget and design specifications. View our Houzz Pro page for stone-specific design inspiration.
Pinterest is another great online inspiration resource. It has an endless amount of photos to inspire you. Try creating an inspiration board to fill with photos of things you like, including color palettes, inspiring quotes, architectural pieces from around the world and home decor ideas. Your inspiration does not have to be all photos of fireplaces you like. If you like a stone used in a different piece, pin it to your board and ask us about it. Check out our other Pinterest boards for even more ideas.
Traveling is a great way to get a taste for the world outside of your normal routine. Seeing new places and buildings is a great way to get inspired to create a unique fireplace design. Travel does not have to be far. Consider taking a short trip to a different city in your state. If your time and budget allow, you can visit a different state or even travel abroad. Many countries have interesting, historical architecture made out of stone. View our inspirational architecture blogs to see some examples:
