I am currently working with a client who wants her downstairs fireplaces renovated to reflect her design style, which has Moroccan influences.  I selected a beutiful ivory Arabesque tile that will really complement her decor, without being too bold.

For your fireplace renovation consider the following:

Simple_fireplace_design1.  Choose the design, materials, and mantel carefully so they enhance the fireplace as a focal point, but not so bold to over power the room.

2.  Add a firescreen that compliments your design style in the room. Available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, select a screen to fit the character of your room. The scrollwork screen here pairs nicely with the side table and fits the refined feel of the space.

3. Fireplace tile can be a great opportunity to tie in the color of the room, and add texture and interest.  A glass tile may lend a contemporary look, granite is a reflective surface that can look elegant and timeless.
