Fireplace Surrounds

by ·

This is Coco of COCOCOZY blog here today.  So thrilled to be posting here on Interior Collective.  Today I want to look at the world of fireplace surrounds and the materials used to face the surrounds.

The fireplace surround is the area closest to the fireplace hearth. On a traditional fireplace, the surround is then topped by a mantel.  In modern decor, the fireplace surround may end up covering the entire wall and chimney.  Fireplace surround facing can be made of quartz (Caesarstone is my quartz of choice), metal, stone/marble, brick or tile.  So many great options and so many looks.

Right now I am in a modern phase as my guy and I are personally working on remodeling a somewhat modern home.  My favorite today is the quartz look because it is sleek and elegant. Running a close second and the exact opposite, is a fireplace with the cottage chic look of white painted brick (the house that I am moving out of is a small cottage where a brick fireplace would look oh so nice).

Take a look at these options for inspiration.

QUARTZ/CAESARSTONE - Sleek and modern

Via Habitar Design

Via Dwell

METAL - Can add old world charm or modern gleam to a fireplace look.

Via Regency

Via Minimalisti

MARBLE - This classic stone is timeless and sophisticated on any fireplace

Via DPages

Via Residence Style

TILE - The options for color, texture and style are endless when using tile on a fireplace.

Via House to Home


Via Mission Stone & Tile

Via Chandos Interiors

BRICK - Brick is a fireplace classic that is underrated these days I think.  I like the look of brick that is painted white.

Via Adore Magazine

Via Ashley Winn Design

 Which one of these do you prefer?  What might you put around your own fireplace and why?

Regardless of which option you choose, just know that you can add major style to your living space with just a little attention to detail around your fireplace!
