Expert advice: Get fired up for fall

Minor enhancements & upgrades that make a major difference.

Cooler weather is just around the corner. Cozying up to the fireplace is one of fall’s simplest pleasures. If you’re thinking of adding (or updating) a fireplace in your home, now is the time to start planning out the project. Here are a few tips from the experts at StoneWorks of the Lowcountry and innovative design ideas that are sure to spark some inspiration.

1. Texture. Create a layered look in your living room by incorporating different textures of tile and stone products. This fireplace features a Seagrass Limestone hearth and multi-colored tiles. Different textures can help create a unique look for your space. 

2. Warm tones. If you’re considering a darker stone, like this Absolute Black Granite, try balancing the rest of the fireplace space with softer color tones. Surround the fireplace with warm wood cabinetry or hardwood floors to create an elegant but cozy feel. 

3. Lowcountry classic. Get the Lowcountry-look with a cream-colored stone product like Seagrass Limestone. This limestone features soft green, pistachio and almond colors throughout the stone, which are colors often found in coastal decor. Pair it with a clean white wall and an ocean print above the mantel for the perfect Lowcountry look.

4. Think big. Don’t be afraid to think big: take your fireplace stone from floor to ceiling, and it’s sure to turn heads with your guests. Full-scale fireplaces can be the statement piece of your space, like this Madre Perla Quartzite beauty. 

5. Double display. You can stay warm and enjoy your fireplace in more than just one space by installing a two-way display. Two-way displays can provide a focal point in more than one room of your home, like this Mosaic Pebble Stone fireplace that can be seen from the kitchen and family room.
