Tips For Designing The Perfect Custom Fireplace For Your Home
There’s something about a fire on a cool, chilly evening. Since the beginning of time, families have gathered around a fire to warm themselves, cook their food, and enjoy time together. Today, we’re lucky to bring the fire inside and decorate this age-old tradition with ornate custom fireplaces in Colorado Springs.
Evenings spent around the fire with your family are the perfect time to relax and warm yourselves on cold winter evenings. Why not customize this centerpiece to match your décor and personality? Here are some tips for designing the perfect custom fireplace for your home.
Choose the Perfect Size
Whether you’re replacing your current fireplace, building a new home, or remodeling your living room and fireplace, the first place to start is choosing the perfect size. It’s important to work with your builder or take accurate dimensions of your current fireplace and location of the flue. Communicate your needs to your blacksmith for a perfect, custom-sized fireplace.
Besides taking size into consideration, the sky’s the limit when deciding how you want your custom fireplace to look. From small to large, gas or wood, custom fireplaces give you the flexibility to choose the perfect size and design.
Select Your Favorite Design
This is the fun part. This is where you get to customize the style and design of your fireplace to stand out as an eye-catching centerpiece or match the décor in your home. A few questions you may want to ask yourself to help determine the design:
- Where is it located? (living room, bedroom, dining room?)
- How big is it?
- How will it be used? (for atmosphere, warm, or both?)
- Is it gas or wood?
- How is the room decorated?
- How can I make this personal to me or my family?
Start dreaming about how your perfect fireplace would look. Gather ideas from online or make sketches based on your answers to these questions. Then get ready to share your ideas with a blacksmith to make them come to life.
