1. Build log storage under a fireplace
We love this simple, fussy free fireplace and the log storage underneath is not only a handy addition but looks really stylish too. This living room is on the traditional side, but this style of fireplace would look amazing in a modern, minimalist space, with the logs adding some warmth and texture.
2. Paint a fireplace to contrast your walls
If your fireplace is looking on the tired side, give it a fresh new look for fall with a coat of paint. Pick a color that’s going to contrast your walls so it becomes more of a feature in the room. That doesn’t have to mean going for a bold color – here this clean, bright white still pops against the light grey of the walls.
3. Decorate your mantle for fall
An empty mantle is a sad mantle. That’s prime decorating space that could be put to use, bringing color, texture and personality into your room. Change up the decor with the seasons too – for fall you obviously want to go for warm hues, dried flowers and even the odd pumpkin.
4. Keep your fireplace chic and simple
If you prefer a cleaner, more minimalist look in your home keep your fireplace design really simple. This fireplace almost blends into the wall and the black marble brings some interest but still looks sleek and modern. Keep the mantle decor to a minimum with just a few houseplants to add some color.
5. Give your fireplace a DIY update
