A rock fireplace design promotes a classic feel to any interior or exterior space. It shows off as strong and lasting which means it can very well serve as a focal point for your overall interior design theme. Rock fireplace designs can make use of the rock material in creating the surround either just focusing on the opening frame or it can extend upwards even reaching the ceiling. For this type of fireplace, it‘s best to use the rock‘s natural color. Possible choices here are to utilize only one color or mix different shades of the rock material. As rocks are quite similar to the stone, they come in various colors such as grey, limestone and light orange or the brick shade.
Refacing the fireplace -- If you want to take the project to a whole new level, you can drastically change the look of a fireplace by using different materials on the exterior face of the fireplace. You can create a high-end elegant look with marble slabs, a modern look with concrete slabs, or a Craftsman look with small tiles in different shades and complementary woodwork. You can either add a mantel or remove one. You can change the shape or the size of the mantel to provide different proportions to your fireplace. Another option is to sheetrock or plaster parts of the fireplace. If the mass of the fireplace is too much for the room, you can reduce it by adding sheetrock or paneling to the exterior. There are even veneer stone and brick materials that are fairly easy to apply that can give your fireplace a very traditional look.
Although fireplaces are no longer the primary way to heat a home, they are still quite popular for doing just that. Especially for those who live in very rural areas, a fireplace can be a potentially incredible investment if you have the means to gather your own wood. Heating your house doesn‘t have to cost money - if you have the motivation, you can trade a little hard work for some heat.
For those companies who operate online, you need only supply them with proper measurements and a decorative guideline. Often, they will even have a gallery of styles from which you can choose so as to best meet your needs. However, for those ambitious do-it-yourselfers who wish to design and build their own mantels it is possible to create a beautiful and unique piece with which to complement the fireplace and the room as a whole.
