Adara Noya Fireplace January 17th, 2018
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.

It saves you space- The days of CD cases and DVD wallets stacking up like stalagmites on your desk or sofa side table can now be a thing of the past. Taking the clutter out of any environment and organizing it sensibly is not only a reasonable thing to do but can directly add to the quality of your life.

Integrate it into your living room. Most people don’t quite have the space for a designated room for their home theater but integrating similar features into a living room can create a comparable cinematic experience. You will need to be extra careful to avoid compromising the existing style of your space though.

This living room gets added drama with a white back-painted glass mantel and fireplace surround that replaced a traditional paneled fireplace. The glass-and-metal mantel is kept sleek thanks to minimal accessories. The key here is to vary the height of the accessories to keep the eye moving along the space.

While it may not seem practical to place items in front of the TV to block it (after all it is meant to be seen at least some of the time) keep in mind that the TV doesn’t necessarily need to be hidden from all angles. A chair placed between you and the TV will hide it (at least partially) when people are traversing the hallways and passing by so the screen is at least hidden when you aren’t plopped down on the sofa. Note that pushing a TV into the back of a deep bookshelf will similarly minimize it from many angles making this technique doubly effective.

This sea grass ottoman from Pottery Barn would be a versatile addition to a living room or porch. The nod to nautical sensibilities is a bonus for coastal living.
