If you’re thinking about a new custom home, chances are fairly good that you’ll be including at least one fireplace.

But what type of fireplace do you have in mind?  Here are a few basic ideas to get you started.

Fireplace Idea #1: Simple and Elegant Gas Fireplace

In most cases, you’ll start with an elegant, simple fireplace design.

This gas fireplace is set off with a black slate surround with matching hearth, and a custom, site-built mantlepiece.


Fireplace Idea #2: Fireplace with Mosaic Tile Surround

For old world sophistication, consider a mosaic tile.

This type of fireplace surround is more labor intensive, but well worth a little additional cost.

In this example, a mini-mosaic was used, with a fabulous mixture of dark and light textures.

The site-built mantle and surround includes an entertainment niche with decorative columns.


Fireplace Idea #3: 42″ Fireplace with Raised Hearth and Framed TV Area

The fireplace is often the focal point of the room, and an oversized fireplace can make a vaulted room even more cozy.

Here, a raised hearth and intergrated, completely trimmed tv area make this fireplace a masterpiece.

Fireplace Idea #4 – Full Height Stone Surround

There’s nothing quite like a stone fireplace surround for a special look.

Whether you’re aiming for a rustic lodge or a classic, timeless feel, stone is an excellent choice.

And stone doesn’t mean the tv has to move – ask about having your tv support installed ahead of time.
