1. Color Selection

When it comes to fireplace design ideas, color is key. Your choice sets the mood for the entire room. Whether you prefer timeless whites and neutrals or bold, rich hues like navy and charcoal, your paint selection can transform your fireplace and the entire living area. Our color consultant, Marcia, is here to help you find the perfect shade that matches your desired ambiance and decor.

2. Embrace Accent Colors

Accent colors play a crucial role in making your fireplace stand out even more. They can add an extra layer of visual interest and depth to the space. Choose an accent color that complements your existing decor or introduces a bold, eye-catching contrast (like the teal blue fireplace by paintedfarmhouse that we included below). Whether it’s the inner fireplace chamber or the surrounding carpentry elements, embracing accent colors can infuse personality and creativity into your fireplace, making it a true focal point within your home!

3. Carpentry Touches

To truly enhance your fireplace project, consider adding some carpentry. Elements like shiplap and detailed trim pieces can provide those final touches that take your fireplace from ordinary to extraordinary.  Our skilled craftsmen specialize in fireplace carpentry and can certainly bring elegance and sophistication to your fireplace’s design. Not only will carpentry add the aesthetics, it will also provide a solid foundation for creating a captivating focal point within your living space, ensuring your fireplace stands as a true work of art!

4. Texture Matters

Texture significantly impacts the visual appeal of your remodeled fireplace. It’s where the unique character and charm of your fireplace can truly shine. Our painting & carpentry experts at MacFarland Painting are well-versed in techniques like whitewashing or distressed finishes, which can create a rustic, cozy look for those desiring a warm appearance. Alternatively, we can apply smooth, polished finishes to achieve a sleek, modern aesthetic that exudes sophistication. The choice of texture, combined with color and carpentry touches, allows us to create a fireplace that seamlessly integrates with your design vision.
