The combination of pale stone with a warm fire burning at the heart is just what can make you feel toasty on a chilly winter evening. While fireplaces come in many kinds of beautiful designs stone in its natural finish has a special appeal. Whatever the size of the fireplace surround a touch of stone gives an earthy look that can add a nice traditional touch to a modern room. You can do up your fireplace with stones to design a Stacked Stone Fireplace.
Whatever the size of the room a fireplace with stacked stone can really act wonders. You can use stones of many different sizes for the fireplace, adding a contrast color among gray stones for a subtle design effect. The texture you use for the stones can give a rugged feel like the fireplace belongs to ancient times. To get this look use large unfinished stones without any smooth edges. This adds an interesting texture to the fireplace surround. For an even look to the fireplace go for smooth same sized stones that can be stacked in neat rows. You can have both open and closed design fireplaces to go with the stacked stones. If you have kids around it is a good idea to have grills around the fireplace. You can also have a glass door fireplace with a stacked stone surround if you are planning to mix old and modern elements in the design. The sight of flames dancing behind the glass looks really pretty when you are sitting in a cozy room. Get ready to enjoy the warmth on winter nights.
