Side by side. This design works magic as both elements stand side by side in perfect harmony. The television and the firebox are similar in size which helps to balance out each other’s weight on the wall. The materials provide contrast while still tying into the rest of the home’s design. If concrete isn’t the right finish for your fireplace surround try a gray-colored tile to create the same effect.

The fireplace is often the most commanding element in any room it’s in. Size and abundance of material are often factors but as renovation specialist Ron Parko points out our eyes are naturally drawn to the darkest object in a room anyway. Oftentimes that’s the firebox when it’s unlit. Naturally you want this element and everything that surrounds it to complement the rest of your home. In many older homes where large brick fireplaces prevail this can pose a challenge.

Just as a coffee table is likely to serve as a footstool at some point the ottoman invariably serves as a makeshift coffee table too. As a resting place for legs and feet an ottoman needs to be easy to clean and durable. For its durability and functionality ottoman leather has almost become synonymous with ottoman furniture. Leather bears up well under heavy use and its patina only improves with age. Ottoman leather suits both contemporary and traditionally decorated rooms too adding texture rich color and style.

The ottoman as a footrest. Many people love to stretch their legs out when sitting. Whether they are reading a book watching TV or simply resting or napping people like to elevate their feet and legs. The biological effect is to reduce the stress on the heart in pumping blood up through the non-return valves in the veins of their legs by keeping your legs raised your heart has less work to do and you consequently use less energy so can relax easier. The padded top of an ottoman permit you to do this comfortably and many use this type of furniture with their recliner rather than use the footrest that comes with the furniture.
