Stone materials vary enormously in colour and composition; whether you opt for limestone, granite, marble, cast stone, slate or even a thin stone veneer each have their own unique look and feel. Of all the stone materials, marble is probably the most expensive and difficult to maintain but if you are after a sumptuous elegant look in your living room, it can be the perfect choice. On the other hand if you don’t want to spend huge amounts of money there is always the cheaper alternative of man-made marble. Limestone can be very captivating if you select a neutral colour that will complement almost any interior design while granite, though not so soft, is also a good choice because it needs very little maintenance.

While we were deciding on that particular fireplace, a few others came to mind. A lazy "S" shape and a circle were two that struck us. Each design is perfect for housing a firebox. Set a fake log set inside and burn some gel fuel. You have a completely original fireplace design because it’s custom made with your personality in mind. It’s not hard to use your imagination to come up with completely original home improvement designs. It will make your home say more about who you are and your guests will absolutely appreciate that. People love when they see interesting designs that they haven’t seen anywhere else. It always seems to spark new ideas and get people more into their own home improvement projects. Grandma’s fireplace was certainly beautiful and traditional. I enjoyed sitting there watching television while she rocked in her rocking chair and made blankets out of yarn. But, contemporary times often call for contemporary measures. If every fireplace were the same, the world would be a boring place.
Isn’t it funny how small things like that can take you back to your childhood when it was much simpler times? The thing is that wasn’t the only fireplace in the house. My father loved them and it grew on me too. We had a brick fireplace in the living room. The wall was brick and the fireplace matched. The other walls were wood and I could sit in that room for hours just looking out the window or reading a book. It was like the fireplace made all the difference in the world. A room without a fireplace was boring. A room with a fireplace came to life and invited you into it. Hot cocoa and picture puzzles are memories associated with the fireplace in the living room. But, we’ve kind of grown up a bit in our design of the fireplace. The other day, I helped a friend decide on a pyramid shaped fireplace. It sits on a base that is about a foot high and three feet wide by three feet long. The pyramid has four sides so it will sit square on the base. That’s a nice design.
