Custom Fireplace Built-Ins Will Help You Stay Warmer This Winter
Winter is coming. There’s no denying it. We’ve already witnessed our first snowfall of the year, and we know we have about five more months of snow, sleet and otherwise dreary weather to deal with.
There is a way to make the impending weather something you can look forward to, however. And that’s by warming things up inside your home. You already have the warm blankets, cozy slippers and candles spread out. But why not consider a cozy, custom fireplace with built-in shelves and a custom surround?
Fire Up Your Fireplace With These Great Design Ideas
If a fresh coat of paint on your current fireplace surround won’t make your fireplace look like you want it to, then you need to consider these fireplace upgrade ideas:
- Custom mantel: If you don’t have a lot of space in your home, choose a mantel-only design upgrade. This way, you can breathe new life into your fireplace without taking up too much of a footprint, and without breaking your bank.
- Built-in bookshelves: Add style and storage with a small section of bookshelves to your fireplace area. You can either add the shelves to one side of the fireplace, or you can surround your fireplace for a more dramatic effect.
- Built-in wall piece: For greatest sizzle effect, consider a full fireplace makeover that includes the whole wall or room in which it resides. Built-in bookshelves from floor to ceiling add a dramatic backdrop, and can provide your family with the additional storage you need. With a larger piece, you also get to vary in design options, including open shelves, glass-front doors and completely closed-off sections.
- Base upgrades: The foot of your fireplace should be just as dazzling as everything around it. Consider replacing the current old brick or broken tiles with updated materials that make your fireplace pop. Now is also the time to consider changing the height of the base for easier use, increased storage or increased seating.
