Adara Noya Fireplace January 23rd, 2018
I love a good fireplace. If you are a member of the always-cold club you know what I’m talking about. Sitting in front of a roaring fire is my idea of cozy. Whether you love the smell and crackle of a wood-burning fireplace or the ease of a gas-burning one choosing the right facing is a big decision.

Painted brick. An option I have used often painted brick works every time. If you are longing to update your old red brick but are short on budget paint your brick. Any color can work but white works with so many different styles. Modern rustic and coastal all work with a painted fireplace. If the bricks are being installed new your project can cost $2.000 to $5.000 for raw materials and installation. (Read this before attempting it yourself though).

Metal. Edgy but old school this firebox surrounded puts an old-world material in a more modern form. Mixing and matching finishes — such as with the raw wood planking metal fireplace and highly lacquered furniture here — feels eclectic and spontaneous.

Kids love ottomans - and vice versa. Ottomans are child friendly - if a small child falls off an ottoman he or she is unlikely to come to any harm. They can be upholstered in child-friendly fabrics and can offer them a playing surface when they are sitting on the floor. They can be used to sit in front of the TV with a games controller and used as a hurdle in the hall for racing or as a horse when riding!

Ottoman coffee tables. Most well-made ottomans are solid enough to be used as coffee tables - and not just in an emergency! Many use their ottoman as a coffee table period! Your ottoman is usually lower in height than your chair or sofa and is perfect as a coffee table. Some ottomans have a shelf under the top that can be used to store magazines so apart from being upholstered they are more table-like than ottoman-like!

To give a more comprehensive definition of ottoman it can be said that an ottoman is a heavy ribbed fabric of a mixture of silk and wool or cotton. They are also known as the ottoman silk. According to many scholars an ottoman was the first cushioned seat without back or arms or a storage-box with a padded top.

Wood. Floor-to-ceiling millwork in a coffered design surrounds this fireplace in true classic style updated with a trendy hue of gray. Placing a decorative layer of stone around the firebox opening as well as on the hearth breaks up all the vertical and horizontal lines of the wood moldings.

So often TVs are installed far too high as people tend to place them where they look best from a standing position forgetting that they will actually be viewed while sitting down. Placing your TV at a proper low angle helps take your eyes off it the rest of the time especially if you tuck it under some shelves painted in a fun hue. Dark floors or a dark rug will help it visually sink away into the ground where it won’t be noticed until it’s TV time.

Optional seating. Whether it is styled in the form of a box or a chair on short legs an ottoman is upholstered and can be used as a seat. Perhaps not as comfortable as an armchair but sufficient as an emergency or alternative seating option in your home during parties or when a crowd of friends descend upon you. It can be stored away under a table and pulled out when needed - or rolled out if your ottoman is fitted with casters.
