Concrete is a very modern and current material that you can use to design everything in your home. You can see concrete walls, ceilings, floors, entire houses, furniture and decor. But today I’m sharing ideas on another cool concrete feature: concrete chimneys! Why chimneys? Because autumn is not that far and it is very pleasant to gather around a fireplace – one that is working, one that is not working, or just a built-in one.
A concrete fireplace can be very different: it can be large or small or take up an entire wall, it can be of different colors (yes, concrete is different colors) and it can show different designs – from very industrial to absolutely elegant and minimalist. Such a fireplace is a nice solution for a modern, contemporary, minimalist chalet, industrial, farmhouse and many other rooms, depending on the design, decor and even mantelpiece. You can opt for a double-sided concrete fireplace to decorate and divide two rooms at the same time.
The most popular concrete fireplaces are large fireplaces with one or more niches for storing firewood. Such a feature becomes the focal point of any room, even if it is a non-working piece, and firewood gives a cozy feeling that is no worse than working a fireplace could. There are also corner and smaller concrete fireplace constructions, which can be lighter or darker – depending on the effect you want to achieve. Add texture to your concrete or choose a rough wood panel coat to make it more interesting and eye-catching. Decorate it with tiles, metal and potted plants, and voila – your fireplace area is gorgeous! Get inspired!
