Decorate the area around the open fireplace
Does the change from summer to winter decoration seem too elaborate? If that is the case then you are wrong. Because that is not the case. Sometimes you need very little to change the mood at home so that it is in harmony with nature.
In winter, it is important to pay attention to the details that radiate warmth and coziness. An open fireplace as the center of the facility is clearly a wonderful idea.
An open fireplace attracts the attention
In the following we want to give you some hints on how to make the area around the open fireplace so that it looks great and cozy. Because that’s exactly what you can expect in the coming gloomy winter months – January and February.
The right project
Are you in the process of realizing a project with an open fireplace? Then you would have to observe the following main rule: In winter, the fireplace must be noticed and disappear in the summer in the wall. How do you achieve this? You need a neutral, wide area or a lot of space around the open fireplace. So you have the opportunity for a decorative transformation, which will achieve the appropriate effect in each season.
Do not hide the wood in winter
You do not need to hide the firewood in winter. Because stacked around the open fireplace, it looks gorgeous and helps to make the atmosphere even more comfortable.
Unusual mirror surfaces
You can position the mirrors at home so that they reflect the fire of the open fireplace and enhance its effect when it is on fire. These can be of different kinds. Think of closet doors, mirrored walls and room dividers. Be careful that they are not too close. Because that can be a danger.
The perfect symmetry
The perfect symmetry in the room and the positioning of the fireplace in the center will be very useful both for “hiding” in summer and for “opening” in winter. So position the furniture balanced on both sides of the fireplace. If the fireplace burns in winter, you could then “absorb” the flames in this by various small objects and distribute it in the room.
Art over the open fireplace
The art by the fireplace can also be a very functional tool. In summer, a large picture or other object may lie in front of it and obscure the dark “hole”. In winter it can be positioned by the fireplace and emphasize the effect of the flames with its fiery nuances.
Take up the same geometric shapes
Do you have many other frames in the room besides those that are by the fireplace? Do you have shelves, cabinets, doors, windows. It would be best if they correspond with each other in size and form. So the atmosphere always appears very harmonious.
No matter which option you choose, the fireplace should not be interconnected in winter by any other elements. Because its effect is emotional and visual. But also physically one is warmed by it.
