It doesn’t matter if it’s about decorating a living room fireplace with a simple brick fireplace or an impressive large stone fireplace. The fireplace has an architectural presence that draws attention. This is the reason why the fireplace very often becomes the focal point in the living room or living room. To turn the fireplace into a focal point in the living room, start by arranging the furniture around it. Usually, you place the sofa or armchairs in front of the fireplace and arrange the smaller pieces – like stools and coffee table – perpendicular to the fireplace on either side. The part in the center can be left empty to facilitate the passage. To attract even more attention to the fireplace, you can also paint the surrounding wall in a color contrasting with the rest or decorate the fireplace mantel with mirrors, plants or art objects..

Perhaps you have other elements besides the fireplace in the living room that you want to draw attention to? A large flat screen TV or a beautiful exterior view can sometimes steal the show from the fireplace. Instead of choosing a single element as the focal point of the decor, let the fireplace share your attention. So, for example, you can put the TV on the wall above the fireplace and arrange your furniture around both. If it is a large room with a nice exterior view, you can set up two separate conversation areas – one in front of the large window and one in front of the fireplace and this will allow you to enjoy both depending of the season. In a smaller living room, arrange the furniture in parallel lines between the window and the fireplace so that you can enjoy the outside view and the fireplace while sitting on the sofa..
