What do you want your finished fireplace to look like?

Do you know your personal fireplace design style (contemporary, traditional, classic, modern)?

The Internet is a great place to gather design inspiration, but the online world is so big knowing where to start can be difficult.

Consider browsing Pinterest and Houzz, each website hosts over a million searchable interior design photos.

Fireplace manufacturer websites can also be helpful since they often feature idea galleries full of customer fireplace renovation photos.

Some manufacturer websites even have online design tools that invite you to design your own fireplace.

Your Details

Every fireplace has a specific purpose.

Some fireplaces are perfect for heating large spaces while others are better suited for creating ambiance.

Before you buy a new fireplace you’ll need to take a few accurate measurements and make a few key decisions.

You’ll know when you’re done with stage three when you can answer these questions:

Will your fireplace be fueled by gas, wood or pellets?
Are you installing a new fireplace or replacing an existing fireplace?
If you have an existing fireplace, what are the dimensions?
What will the primary function of your new fireplace be: heat or ambiance?
What size room will your fireplace live in?
What materials will surround your fireplace? (wall, floor, ceiling etc.)
Pro tip: If you have questions during stage 3, visit your local fireplace store to get some expert help.

A Design Consultant has visited your home to take a close look at your project, you’ve been given an estimate, everything sounds great…now what?

Material Selection

It is important to figure out your style before diving into your project investment.

After seeing your existing space for so many years with the same color scheme, decor, furniture, it can be difficult to pinpoint what style to choose next…do you go with trend?

What you want? What your family wants? What your friends suggest? Decisions, decisions!

They say a good time to remodel any space is about every 10 years or so, a lot can change in 10 years! Not just trends, but also your taste in decor/style.

It also seems like every year, new styles in flooring, cabinetry, paint, and hardware come out, making it even more overwhelming to choose.

In one image you can pull together the floor tile, cabinet color, shower floor/wall tiles, mosaic accents, counter-top choices all the way to the details including hardware.
