Without impressive surround, a fireplace cannot become the center of attention in a room. If you want your fireplace look stunning, then adding it with surround is a must. The surround also provides you a space to put decorative items that can help to beautify your fireplace further.
From the first picture, you can see a wall-mount fireplace with simple dark wooden surround. Although the wooden surround is just the simple one, it has helped the fireplace to appear more elegant. Thus, the fireplace can even deliver greater warm feel. Mantel is an integral part of the wooden fireplace surround. Small brass candle stands and two vases of flowers adorn the mantel beautifully. Interesting framed pictures of butterfly hang on wall above the fireplace mantel. Meanwhile, a small bench is set in front of the fireplace.
Moving to the second picture, you can see a fireplace with impressive brick surround. The brick surround makes the fireplace to have even warmer feel. I think it’s not difficult to create such fireplace surround. You only need to purchase some clay bricks. Then, use cement as the adhesive to attach the bricks on wall around a fireplace. After that, you may hang interesting framed picture on upper part of the brick fireplace surround. Adding the surround with wooden mantel is also a good idea. I suggest you to decorate the wooden mantel with candle stands and earthenware.
The third picture shows a lovely corner fireplace with white surround. The white fireplace surround may be made from concrete. White ceramic material is installed on top of the surround to serve as mantel. Small glass candle holders and pot of plant beautify the fireplace mantel. Meanwhile, framed black and white photos create dramatic look for the fireplace. From those fireplace surround designs, which one is your favorite?
