Florida Fireplace Trends to Consider

Is your fireplace and the area around it not very exciting? Would an upgrade help to beautify your room and give you more enjoyment? Doodlebuggers Fireplace, Grill & Outdoor Store of Pensacola, FL, and Destin, FL, would like to share a few of the hot trends we’re seeing throughout Florida for stunning fireplace upgrades, changeouts and remodels.

Trendy Fireplace Remodeling in Destin, FLThree trendy areas

Most hearth-area renovations happen in three areas:
1. The hearth just outside the firebox
2. The space just above the firebox
3. The wall around the fireplace

Let’s look at each one.

Hearth trends:

Working with a qualified mason or fireplace contractor, you can beautify your hearth by raising it, expanding it or having it rebuilt with new, attractive materials. While working on the hearth, consider a handsome set of fireplace tools and possibly some snazzy storage containers for logs.

Mantel trends:

If you don’t have a fireplace mantel, or if the one you have is sort of blah, you can change that quickly. Mantels can be purchased pre-made or designed especially for you. While a mantel is a decorative accessory, it’s also useful for holding floral arrangements, seasonal decorations, portraits, candles and just about anything else that will fit.

Fireplace surround trends:

A fireplace surround is the treatment on the wall that extends out from the actual fireplace. Every year, we see stunning new pre-made surround choices that are ready to add to your hearth area. As with hearths, surrounds can incorporate a variety of material types (see below) to make a gorgeous match with the rest of your room’s décor.

So many materials and ideas

Hot, trendy materials for fireplace and hearth-area remodeling include many you probably already know about and a few you may not have thought of.

Tile: Ceramic or porcelain tile can bring instant personality and color to a surround or hearth.
Natural stone: Infuse your room with rustic charm and the beauty of natural stone.
Brick: Although somewhat traditional, brickwork in a hearth or surround can be quite versatile with unique colors and maybe even some paint.
Plaster: A smooth, painted plaster finish will produce a sleek, clean and uncluttered look in your fireplace area.
Wood: As with natural stone, new or reclaimed wood lends a feeling of earthiness to a hearth area – and there are so many ways you can treat and color it.
Metal: For an ultra-modern effect that stands out, consider using various metal materials in your project.

Trends in Fireplaces

If you want to change out your existing fireplace, you have some great options. Talk with your contractor about wood, gas, pellet and electric fuel choices. Also, ask about adding a fireplace insert to crank up the heat and beauty. Maybe you’re looking to start from scratch and have a new manufactured fireplace installed.
