Today, beautiful fireplaces are one of the most popular and at the same time functional decorative elements. Basically, when choosing a fireplace, many people are guided not only by their own tastes and desires, but also by the features of the interior of the room in which this item will be located. To make the atmosphere in your home more cozy and family-like, you can work on creating a decor for your fireplace.
If you decide to make a fireplace decor with your own hands, you should pay attention to several original ideas. Basically, such changes are required in cases where the standard design looks boring and dull. Adding some elements will allow you to "breathe" new life into the overall fireplace, and make it really beautiful and interesting.
Most often, for decoration, those items are used that are suitable for each other in terms of functionality. What kind of fireplace will look “full-fledged” if there is no wood burning stove next to it and a special poker for stirring the coals? The advantage of such items is that they fulfill not only a decorative, but also a functional role. To these components, you can add a brush and tongs.
Such sets are now presented in a fairly wide assortment, so there are no special problems with the choice. During the acquisition, you need to focus on the style of the fireplace. It is best to select components that are suitable for their external qualities.
If you prefer simpler and more common options, then you can use the following products in the design of the fireplace:
- glass or ceramic vases;
- decorative plates.
Recently, various paintings or photographs inserted into interesting frames are popular options. Such products can be made independently using available tools. This will bring novelty and uniqueness to the interior, and will definitely pleasantly surprise your loved ones and guests.
Use of photographs and paintings
Decorating a fireplace with a photo or bright images is one of the most successful solutions. This idea is a win-win, since you can choose a picture in accordance with the design of both the fireplace and the entire interior.
Most often, three-dimensional images are used in the decor, which look harmoniously against the background of the walls. Pay attention to the style and shade of the picture, as it should not blend in tone with the wallpaper. Large images are best hung over a fireplace and centered.
The interior is often decorated with reproductions of famous paintings. Keep in mind that such options should be used as decoration with extreme caution. You should not choose too voluminous and bright drawings, especially when it comes to the classic interior.
Another option for decorating a fireplace is to put frames with photographs on the top. Decorative elements should stand out favorably and contrast against the general background, creating an atmosphere of warmth and comfort.
Registration for the New Year
You can easily create a New Year's design for a fireplace yourself using popular ideas. Basically, various New Year's socks forts are used as decoration. Often such products are called boots or stockings.It should be noted that such a tradition of decorating a fireplace with New Year's socks does not apply to Santa Claus. This element has been used for a rather long period, and it is directly related to Santa Claus. It is he who on Christmas night should put a gift for the child in the boot.
Such decoration for the fireplace will be very appropriate if children live in the house. They will not only be happy about the New Year's environment around them, but will also be able to feel all the fabulousness of the winter holiday.
Often other toys are used in the design of the fireplace: wreaths, bright balls and colored tinsel. Such decorations can be placed on the sides or placed on top. It is recommended to hang wreaths in the middle part, as it looks aesthetically pleasing and beautiful. Christmas products are suitable as home decorations.
It is not always possible to install a real fireplace, especially in an apartment. This is not allowed by safety rules and the complexity of installation, so it is worth considering other options.
One of the popular and successful solutions that are suitable for both private houses and apartments is the installation of an electric fireplace. The main advantage of these models is complete safety. Installation does not take much time, and you can choose the design according to your own preferences.
At the heart of the fireplace, a special hearth is used, which can be purchased at the store. All that is required of you is to create a decoration around this system. For this, it is best to use drywall, as it does not create a strong load and is easy to process.
