We continue the fireplace topic because it’s extremely actual in the middle of the fall and taking into consideration that the winter is coming. We’ve already shared some fireplace types you can try, and today we’ll have a look how to clad or cover fireplaces to make them stand out and to make the space around safe in case you are using not an electrical one. Let’s get started.
Stone clad fireplaces are timeless classics, which is usually suitable for most of interiors – such a fireplace will add texture to the space, make it cozier and more interesting. Cabins, chalets, rustic and even modern spaces look great with stone clad fireplaces. It can be a built-in or a double-sided fireplace, and the stone to clad is up to you – large and different pieces or something more regular. You can also go for cladding a fireplace with bricks and give them a look that fits your interior.
Cladding a fireplace with metal is a bold modern idea that guarantees safety. It can be galvanized steel or shiny copper – it’s up to you and your interior. You can also make a bold statement with a dark metal fireplace that will stand out more than any other feature. Such fireplaces are awesome for industrial and masculine interiors, they will also stand out in modern and minimalist spaces.
I can’t say that wood is the most popular material for cladding a fireplace because it’s not that safe and fits only some cases. For example, you can cover the fireplace with stone and then continue with matching wood, an electric or ethanol fireplace can be covered with wood, too if it’s not too close to the part that is hot.
