Unique Fireplace Ideas for Warmth with Elegance

Friday, April 11th, 2014 by Danny Peterson

Appropriate warmth within a cozy environment sounds heavenly during one of the chilling days of winter. There can be nothing more exotic than to enjoy a cold winter evening amidst the warmth with family. A fireplace is perhaps the best place in the house to enjoy the cold weather. However, just like all other interior parts of the house, fireplaces also received a touch of innovation. With time, several innovative fireplace designs have spread throughout the international market, all of them ready to steal the show.

Most people around the world have a desire to offer their room with an elegant look. A fireplace with modern design can not only offer more warmth than before, but also give a room with an enhanced feel of elegance. Moreover, the latest designs can also help people provide a helping hand towards environment. Here are some of the most innovative fireplace designs prevailing in the recent world –

#1 Let it Bling

Winter brings about a hint of festive joy in the mind of people. Christmas is a festival of light, and hence, let people provide appropriate lighting in the property. Nothing can prove to be better than those shiny things to decorate the fireplace. Shiny things including crystal showpieces, gold, silver, and mirror based items, candles and lights, all serve the same purpose. Using them in an appropriate manner around the fireplace will not only add that extra life to the area, but also will turn many heads.

#2 Minimalistic Design

At times, less tends to be more than the need. However, one needs to be extremely selective while choosing the decoration items, if opting for a minimalistic design. Such a design can add a sophisticated look to the fireplace while offering greater level of elegance to the entire room than before. In order to make the best out of the design, decorate the rest of the room with heavy items, for instance, a greatly decorated Christmas tree during winter.

#3 A Touch of summer

Well, most people miss the summer days during the winter. Those who do not miss it, design their fireplace with a touch of winter to it. For example, many people opt for a forested and snowy backdrop for the fireplace. However, summer lovers can surely opt for a coastal decoration idea. Apart from using the traditional fireplace decoration elements, people can go for beach elements like starfish, shells, and various other things to offer a unique look to their fireplace, even while staying away from the beach.

#4 Vintage

There are many homeowners around the world, who love old, vintage look within the rooms. More than anything, they would love to apply the same words for the fireplace. As a result, many people use pastels and neutrals to decorate their fireplace, and give a rustic look. Most of the traditional elements of a fireplace are available in the recent market with an old, vintage look.

#5 Eco-Friendly Attempt

This might sound strange to many, but it is possible to decorate a fireplace by keeping the matter of environment in mind. Pine cones can be a great alternative to traditional decorative items, and can also deliver the perfect mood for the festive season. Festive pomegranate fruit — plantable evergreens and many other eco-friendly items can take the elegance of a fireplace, as well as, the room to a new level without hampering the environment. Therefore, buy the best option from the above list of innovative fireplace ideas, and take a step ahead to ensure the maximum level of elegance. Summary: People, who are in search of innovative ideas for their fireplace to enjoy great warmth with elegance, should choose from any of the above options, and design their fireplace in the most beautiful way possible. Author’s Bio: James Patrick is a renowned blogger about real estate agent, who advises people to buy properties for sale in and around Carlisle with expertise help and utmost care in order to grab the best deal.

Recently we hired Integrity Pro to design and complete a combination bathroom and Laundry room in our basement.We knew for quite sometime this would be a big time consuming job. We actually interview at least 6 other construction companies. We found out that a lot of plumbers were not interested in the construction aspects of this type of work. We found out that anyone offering to do this for 7-8 thousand dollars was not trustworthy.More than once we were ready to pull the trigger only to walk back from the ledge for different reasons.The first thing that stood out on the Integrity estimate was that big fat liability policy that was part of the estimate proposal. As a retired Casualty Insurance Professional this was definitely a determining factor. The other was the fixture allowance.But it did take 2-3 conversations to lead to the big hand shake.Then the next “feel good” factor was Alberto the lead carpenter. He came in on a Saturday after the plumber because he needed to get a jump on things. He worked every Saturday until finished.We saw Mike the Project Manager like 4 times. Very reassuring.The door to the laundry room needed some creative thinking. Once again great results.For us this was a once in a life time project, we had much to loose if done incorrectly, but much to gain when done right. That is where we are, on the plus side. Well done.Anthony Bynum

This company is very responsive. Not only did Danny (owner) listen to our concerns, but he heard our concerns. Many days, I was leaving as the workers arrived. Danny would leave post it notes to ensure the contractors addressed any concerns from the day before. The contractors are very respectful of our home. They cleaned up every afternoon so as not to leave our house in disarray.My fireplace turned out beautifully. My bathroom doors were moved and the new locking barn darns turned out beautifully. Danny is having a custom threshold designed to make the transition between too rooms seamless. Danny took a load barring wall down to open up the kitchen and the back room. Danny ensured the openings to these rooms were at least 36 inches. Ensuring the house is ADA accessible was very important to me.

Our project coordinator on site was Alberto. He was so fastidious, and was so committed to making the job look fantastic at the end. He even came back after he realized he forgot to put some thing on our final cabinet installation even thought he was in his truck, on his way out. He was just so excellent and we can’t have asked for a better project result.

I’m so happy to have found Integrity Home Pro! After working with multiple contractors on various house projects, Integrity Home Pro has been a breath of fresh air. They’re professional, courteous, knowledgeable, reliable, show up when they say they’re going to, and are quick to respond to phone calls and emails. Not only that, their work is excellent. We hired them to renovate a bathroom and were so impressed we hired them to renovate our sunroom and kitchen and make various improvements around the outside of our home. I cannot recommend them highly enough and will work with them again for any future home improvements.

My wife and I reached out to Integrity Home Pro for a quote to repair/replace wood under our bay windows that started rotting years ago. Within a few days, we had an estimate with several different options, and reasonable price set for the work done, as well as an estimate for how long the work would take.Within 3 weeks, Integrity Home Pro sent out their team to replace our rotted wood with panels and had finished the work within the time originally estimated. We're so happy with the work they've done, that we will certainly be reaching out again for more work on our home.Long and short: Integrity Home Pro has shown us professional courtesy, impressive workmanship, and genuine care for our needs. The quality of service is a rarity, and we plan on reaching out to Integrity again in the near future.Photos provided to show the before and after

Integrity Home Pro was a pleasure to work with. I had extensive hail damage to my house and the process of getting information to my insurance and approval for a full replacement was a long process. Ben at Integrity was very patient and extremely helpful every step of the way. He assisted with everything the insurance needed so that now I have a new roof and siding. The installers were outstanding and when they were finished you could not see any debris on the lawn or damage to any bushes. I used Integrity about 10 years ago for the previous roof that the hail damaged ( I thought they were terrific then) and I think they only have improved with time. I highly recommend them!

Integrity Home Pro did an excellent job at remodeling our bathroom. They are very skilled, professional, and they work together to get the job done in a timely fashion. They were very patient, attentive, and courteous, and always kept us abreast every step of the way. Our newly remodeled bathroom exceeds our expectations and is simply beautiful. We could not have asked for a more dedicated and devoted team.

Integrity Home Pro were very pleasant and easy to work with when our roof was damaged by a tree branch. They replaced my roof quickly in the morning. Also, I am a returning customer knowing they did a great job replacing my roof 20 years ago.

Integrity Home-Pro just completed remolding our kitchen. The process took two weeks. Elmer Lopez did the work. He worked non-stop everyday; his workmanship is premium. Tera Ingwersen guided us through the process from the office on a regular basis and was always available to answer questions. Integrity's quote for the work was significantly less than a quote given by another company. Integrity's owner, Danny Peterson, personally came when we called about getting a quote. He followed up on two occasions as the work was being done. Integrity Home Pro has done other major projects on our home and we have been pleased each time.
