Stucco Fireplace

The Charm Of A Stucco Fireplace

Today, it seems like you are seeing more stucco fireplaces being designed and constructed than in years past. The reason for this is due in part because of how it gives your fireplace a slick look, which is perfect for the current modern design style. If you do it right, it can even turn your fireplace into a work of art, because it gives it a more dimensional look.

Stucco fireplaces are especially elegant in American southwestern styled homes. Many people who have used stucco on their fireplaces have reported that it helps to add a more cozy feeling to the room. So if you're going for a more relaxed and informal feel to your room, stucco is certainly a choice to consider.

Other materials to consider in giving your fireplace a more modern look is mosaic tile or even painted concrete. In the past fireplaces were traditionally made with stone, marble or framed with wood. These days, you just have a lot more option for designing your fireplace mantel and fireplace surround.

An often neglected aspect of fireplace design is furniture placement. Believe it or not, the look and feel you get from a stucco fireplace is largely determined by how you place the furniture in your room. For example, placing all of the furniture so that it faces the fireplace will make the room feel cozier.

Additionally, to sharpen the look of your fireplace, you may consider placing a piece of artwork or a painting above the fireplace that compliments the colors and designs of that fireplace.

You don't have to create this type of fireplace from scratch. In fact, many people are remodeling their stone fireplaces and updating them with a stucco finish. Again, the number one reason for doing this is to modernize the fireplace to give the room a more contemporary feel.

While the material of the fireplace is important, remember to take all the elements in together. The mantel is the centerpiece of the fireplace, so don't skimp on the mantel just so you can splurge with the stucco. Oftentimes the simplest way to really set a fireplace off is to create a custom fireplace mantel.

This will even be more effective if the customized mantel compliments the stucco design.

To best decide if a stucco fireplace is the best option for your home, contact a professional design consultant and ask for their advice. At the very least, get a second opinion.
