Design is a living and breathing entity that ebbs and flows over time. Some years, design trends modern, while other years, design incorporates a tradition or rustic look. Other years, trends meld both modern and traditional for a bold new appearance.
In 2016, tile is expected to be the “it” trend. Tile can be integrated around your fireplace, and your mantle piece, and can offer a unique look and feel to your home. And tile is strong enough to withstand the heat of your fireplace.
Tiles offer a wide range of options, from floral designs that are full of vibrant colors, to metallic tiles that exude luxury, and everything between.
Also expected to continue to be a popular fireplace trend is the more traditional stone, which can add a visual appeal to any style home — from classic to avant-garde. And stone is a sturdy and safe option for fireplaces.
Regardless of the design style you choose, accentuating your fireplace is key, and can be accomplished though adding tiles, painting the mantel a color different than the walls around it, or choosing stone to provide a visual and textural difference.
