The typical American home tends to lack signifigant architectural detail. Long, straight rooms of white on white with small molding and builder-grade doors may get old. One of the simplest ways to add a punch would be to add a fire feature. The visual impact of a fireplace may enliven a space, and the heat of the fires can create any space comfy.
Check out these fire attributes included in specific ways — you could just be prompted to bring several fires for your next home improvement project.

A fireplace may liven up an easy white space. Instead of going with a conventional arrangement, try an asymmetrical one. A thick black mantel provides the feature dimension.

White isn’t your style? Try out this arrangement with a rustic stone surround and organic wood mantel. It works flawlessly with the angled line of this ceiling.

A fireplace is not simply a boon to indoor spaces; it may liven up an exterior as well. This chimney provides a basic ranch shape more character and lends a cottage feel.

Perhaps you don’t need a fireplace inside, however an outdoor fireplace will be perfect. Adding a fireplace instantly creates an outdoor space and may expand your living room.
If you don’t have a fireplace, you may add a hint of a hearth with a mantelpiece.

Fire has a home in this kitchen via a wood-burning pizza oven. Can there be anything more reassuring than a pepperoni pie baking over open coals?

If a pizza oven is too large of a commitment for you, maybe a conventional fireplace is the best addition to your kitchen and dining room. This fireplace, set behind the dining table, adds interest to the back wall and a homey glow to winter nights.
If your appearance is more contemporary, a sleek concrete encircle might be the way to go. This appearance is anything but ordinary.

Here is another surround set to a wall. A gas fireplace lessens the maintenance and cleanup of a conventional fireplace.
However you choose to design the space, a tiny fire or the suggestion of it may incorporate a warm, reassuring touch to your home.
