Keep reading to learn more and to gather some inspiration before you choose the fireplace that suits your home best:
Valor offers two different types of freestanding fireplaces, the Madrona and Portrait. Each model provides a different style and looks while providing the radiant warmth that Valor Fireplaces is known for. This fireplace style gives you a rustic, cabin-like feel with modern conveniences and high-quality heat that you desire for your home. Once you have decided on the kind of fireplace you prefer, you need to design your new unit’s perfect setting and background.
When you’re thinking about installing a freestanding fireplace, it’s essential to consider the setting that will be behind, and that will surround the unit. One way to really bring a complete rustic feel to the home is to consider accenting the area with wood, either through the flooring, wall design or within accent pieces. You will complete the design and create a cozy atmosphere mixed with other natural elements such as stone, wicker, or brick.
Another way to highlight the look and feel of your freestanding fireplace is to place it in a room with lots of natural light. Surrounding your fire with windows will bring the sense of the outside in while you keep warm next to the flickering flames. Consider adding in curtains or window dressings that accent the fireplace design and offer you the option of creating a private and inclusive space.
Lastly, if you want a standout look for your freestanding fireplace, consider an accent wall to really help the fireplace be the center of attention. This eye-catching design will act as the centrepiece of your room, and you can use the accent wall as inspiration when decorating the rest of the space. Consider bringing similar colors from the accent wall into the rest of the room to complete the entire look.
