Now that the holidays are in the past, it’s time to start thinking about spring and summer. Even though a Colorado winter can get long, there comes a point when you know it will be done and spring flowers will start to bloom. If you’re looking forward to warmer weather and lots of outdoor activities, you can start the ball rolling earlier by looking into some of the top interior design trends for 2020. Some of these even include fireplace facelifts. If you think your home needs some help to bring it into the new decade, then read on for what’s going to be hot in 2020.
A Fireplace Facelift
If you’re looking for a way to really change up an area, to make a room look really different, then go right for the focal point of the room: the fireplace! If you love your fireplace but think it’s starting to look tired and outdated, then we’ve got you covered. There are so many different things that you can do that will spark up your room. First, if your fireplace is really outdated, that means you are probably experiencing a drafty, inefficient burn. You might want to consider converting your fireplace into a more efficient wood burner, or a more convenient gas-burning appliance. Gas burning logs make a realistic-looking fire with the convenience of flipping a switch. Or maybe you’d prefer a pellet burner, which is also something the experts at Chimney Doctors of Colorado can take care of for you in not much time at all!
Fresh Looks With Facelifts and Mantels
If you want to change the look of your fireplace but don’t really need to do an entire conversion, then you might want to consider just giving your fireplace a facelift! There are many ways to add a fresh ambiance to your room by updating the front of your fireplace. One great way that isn’t too expensive is to update your mantelpiece. This might mean buying a new mantel or maybe even making one of your own. If you can find a piece of wood that means something to you, or if you need to take down a tree from your yard, you might be able to make or have a mantel made for you. There are many ready-made styles to choose from as well.
Whether your style is modern or traditional, you can find it at Chimney Doctors of Colorado. You can also use your fireplace to create a beautiful display using a beautiful vase filled with flowers, some candles, and a display of family photos. An added benefit of a beautiful new mantel is that you can change it up to fit the different seasons or to change the mood of the room just by changing the decorations on top!
Another way to give your fireplace a facelift is to add a decorative screen. There are many different styles to choose from, and this has the added benefit of keeping stray sparks and embers from jumping out of the fire and onto your hearth.
Of course, sometimes all it takes to make a big difference in your living area is to clean up your fireplace. At Chimney Doctors of Colorado, we specialize in cleaning up the face of your fireplace. We’ll remove stains, fix up any cracks in your fireplace facing, and rebuild your firebox if it needs it. Just fixing up the look of the exterior of your fireplace can go a long way to making it look more homey and welcoming, and as an added bonus, your fireplace will work better as well.
Other Interior Design Trends
After you get your fireplace looking spiffy, you might want to consider doing other interior work as well. One of the big trends this year is making your room look uniquely you! Look for eco-friendly options to match the trend towards ecological consciousness. Using materials that are sustainably harvested, like rattan, will be in vogue. Look for warm colors in jewel tones to replace the more neutral beiges and off whites. Above all, though, keep in mind that doing you is the best way to go when it comes to decorating your home.
