Modern fireplace lounge with concrete cover
It does not matter if it's about decorating a fireplace lounge with a simple brick fireplace or a large impressive stone fireplace. The fireplace has an architectural presence that attracts attention. This is why the fireplace very often becomes the focal point in the living room or the living room. To turn the fireplace into a focal point in the living room, start by arranging the furniture around. Generally, the couch or armchairs are placed in front of the fireplace and smaller rooms - such as stools and coffee table - are arranged perpendicular to the chimney on each side. The center part can be left empty to facilitate the passage. To further attract attention to the fireplace, you can also paint the wall around in a contrasting color with the rest or decorate the mantel with mirrors, plants or art objects.

You may have other items, besides the fireplace, in the living room on which you want to attract attention? A large flat screen TV or a beautiful outdoor view can sometimes steal the show at the fireplace. Instead of choosing a single element as a focal point in the decor, let the fireplace share the attention it carries. So, for example, you can put the TV on the wall above the fireplace and arrange your furniture around both. If it is a large room with a beautiful view, you can arrange two separate conversation spaces - one in front of the large window and one in front of the fireplace - and this will allow you to enjoy both of the season. In a smaller living room, arrange the furniture in parallel lines between the window and the fireplace so that you can enjoy the outdoor view and the fireplace as you sit on the sofa.

If your living room is open plan with the kitchen or dining room, the fireplace can become a perfect room divider to delimit different spaces. With a direct vent system, you can place your fireplace anywhere in the living room and build a wall around it to create an even stronger visual barrier between the living room and the kitchen or dining room. Examine even the possibilities for a double-sided fireplace to have one in the living room, one in the other room and enjoy the sight and the crispness of the fire.

Maybe your chimney is too old and does not fit your decor or you just do not like it? If you do not have the budget to fix your fireplace, you can use the room's design to minimize its presence. To do this, start by painting the fireplace and what surrounds it in the same color as the wall next door. Leave the mantel empty and do not put any decorative objects or art pictures on the wall above. When arranging the furniture in the living room, place them far enough away from the fireplace to divert attention from it. But to really change the look in your living room, you must have a different element of the fireplace that will now serve as a central point of decoration. If it is a room without architectural features such as a large window, for example, put a beautiful art board in bright shades placed on the wall in front of the fireplace to create an accent wall.
