Tips for Designing a Fireplace Enhancing your home’s beauty with a fireplace is a wonderful idea – as long as you make sure your design complements your home, rather than detracts from it. There are endless possibilities when it comes to stone fireplace designs. However, just because the sky is the limit does not mean you should reach for the sky. Instead of going “all in,” keep these tips in mind when designing a fireplace for your home:
- Pay attention to the current look and feel of your home. You want a fireplace that blends within your current design theme – not something that sticks out in an obnoxious manner.
- Size matters when it comes to fireplaces. If you add a huge fireplace to your home without giving thought to the actual heat it will produce, you could roast yourself out during the winter.
- Be creative. Just because your neighbor has an extravagant marble fireplace that cost thousands and thousands of dollars does not mean that you need the same. Your budget might be limited, so be creative with your dollars – Carved Stone Creations has plenty of stone types to choose from that will fit your budget and still look amazing.
- Seek professional advice. If you have a vision, but lack artistic ability, contact a pro to get some design tips and to help you work up a sketch. Then, just bring it to us, and we will custom design a fireplace to meet your specifications. Plus, with professional advice, you can rest assured that your fireplace will be a perfect match for your home.
