Living Room Fireplace Ideas
Possibly the most seen and trafficked part of your home, the living room is a place for hosting and relaxation. It’s where you want your guests to be; therefore, it’s where you’ll want to show off some of your best home decorations. It’s time to light up the fireplace, because this is where you have the freedom to get a bit fancy. Here are some of our favorite fireplace tiles ideas for the living room!
Marble is one of the most coveted materials in the remodeling industry. It’s cool, smooth, and beautiful to look at; not to mention it can heavily increase the value of your home! It’s elegant, timeless, and it really stands out no matter what. If your budget can afford it, then you’ll be wise to invest in marble for years to come.
Traditional Stone and Brick Tile
What better way to wow your guests than with a large, tall, real-stone fireplace? You can showcase your cozy living room with something grand and historical, such as a big stone surround that really draws in the eye. Not to mention, it’s great at retaining heat, so during the coldest winter weeks, you’ll still be fully warm.
Glass Mosaic Tiles
Another great decorative idea, glass mosaic tiles really give your guests something to look at. Since the living room is the perfect place to show off, you can be welcomed by an array of shimmering tiles of varying shapes and sizes – or something that is symmetrical and all the same. You may know glass mosaic already from bathroom and kitchen back-splashes. They’re just as popular with fireplace surrounds, and it can be a great way to start incorporating some colors into your fireplace area.
Fireplace Color Ideas
For more decorative fireplace ideas, you might be looking for something that adds a little bit more pop and flair. Instead of a single-toned tile, you can decorate your surround not only with different colors, but with different designs, too. It’s nearly impossible for us to list all the great ways that homeowners can get creative, but we’ll list a few of our favorites here.
Fireplace Tile Patterns
Do you like stripes? How about zig-zags? You can achieve a classy yet fun look with some very diverse tile patterns. The fireplace is the perfect place to experiment with different tiles and designs, as it can really draw the eyes in without appearing to be too overwhelming. Create a sense of drama in your home with some white and blue zig-zag stripes, or alternating shades of yellow and gray.
Herringbone Tile Patterns
The herringbone style is quite a popular one, and it can make for a great conversation piece when investing in a fireplace. This is something that strays from the standard, making your home a valuable one. The herringbone style is much like a zig-zag pattern, using alternating shapes of long tiles to create a fishbone-like pattern.
Pebble Texture Tiles
When you imagine the different types of tiles available to your disposal, pebbles may not be the first things that come to mind. However, this is a great fireplace decorative idea if you are looking for something cute and different. They can highly contrast with something like wood flooring, which goes together better than you may think. Plus, it is good for covering larger spaces of your surround, in case you are looking to expand outward in your home redesign.
