Ideas for a Cobblestone Fireplace

Updated:2013-07-31 16:12:57

Cobblestones enhance the warm, bold look of a fireplace. Originally used to pave roads, cobblestones are rounded stones that offer a touch of old-world style. Grout seals the gaps between the stones so the upkeep is relatively low. Installers know a variety of ways to match the use of cobblestone to the size and decor of your home. Cobblestone facing is a popular choice for giving a fresh, unique look to an old brick fireplace.

                                               

Add an arch to the frame of your fireplace to enhance the timeless feel of cobblestone and the warmth of a room. The graceful curve keeps a room from having too many "squares", a pet peeve for many home owners with square tables, square shelves and square windows -- not to mention square rooms. If your home is decorated country style, a cobblestone arch brings cohesion to the overall design. An arched cobblestone fireplace makes a classic centerpiece for a living room or den.
Stone provides a pleasant, visual contrast to natural light. In a spacious room, floor-to-ceiling cobblestones create a dramatic look and the illusion of the fireplace running up the stone wall. The clean lines and natural stone surface complements a large contemporary room. This style can be overbearing and bulky in a small room. If your fireplace is wide, top off the lower third with a mantel and narrow the cobblestones as they reach the ceiling, for a fresh, sophisticated finish.
Wood mantels bring out the rustic qualities of a cobblestone fireplace and provide a visible surface area for family photos, candles or sculptural artwork. Consider using thick, reclaimed wood from a barn for the mantel shelf. Hang a few small copper pots beneath the mantle or add a rusty watering can full of wild flowers to the top ends. In a smaller room, you can mount your television right over the mantle or hang a large antique mirror to make the room feel larger.
