10 Fireplaces to Warm Your Heart

The fireplace is often the focal point in a room, and can make or break the design of a given space. Whether you’re installing a new fireplace or giving your old one a facelift, here are ten HighCraft projects to inspire your hearth and home décor.

1. Artisan Tiles and Shiplap


The colorful tiles, slate blue shiplap, and floating mantel used on the fireplace in this basement family room give it an appealing focal point and modern farmhouse feel.


The floral-motif tiles are warm and friendly, stylish and inviting.

2. Statement Stone and Timbers


A massive stone fireplace is the centerpiece of this lodge-style great room in a HighCraft custom build by Livermore.


The stone was locally sourced, and the mantel – rough-hewn from a 100-year-old barn beam – rests on stone corbels above a classic keystone. Learn more about this custom home project HERE.

3. Bold Pattern Pop

HighCraft transformed an unfinished basement into this spacious family room with a modern statement wall, functional fireplace and storage.


The double-diamond porcelain tile adds a bold pop of pattern to the fireplace surround. Learn more about this whole house remodel HERE.

4. Traditional Stone


This classic stone fireplace complements the furnishings, yet adds texture and interest to this traditional great room.


The hand-hewn mantel was stained to match the interior doors, base and case trim, and kitchen island cabinetry for design continuity. Learn more about this custom home HERE.

5. Prairie-Style Trim


It’s no coincidence that the trim work on this fireplace surround mirrors the Prairie-style grid work on the windows of this painstaking renovation. Learn more about the whole house remodel HERE.

6. Modern Monoliths


This sleek and modern natural gas fireplace surround, covered in large format tiles, anchors the entire living room. It also provides color contrast to better showcase the stunning Sputnik chandelier.


The black fireplace accent wall in the master bedroom reinforces the bold, sleek and modern design aesthetic of the entire home. Read more about this project HERE.

7. Mountain Rustic


Two custom bookcases flank a fireplace surround made of southern ledgestone. The simple mantel was hewn from the first tree cleared on the mountain property before HighCraft built the off-grid custom home.


We also created a log storage solution under the stone hearth of the wood-burning insert. Read more about this project HERE.

8. Classic Craftsman Touches


The clean, simple lines of the newly built bookshelves and fireplace surround look original to the home and honor the style of this 1920 bungalow.


The green arts-and-crafts accent tiles add interest to the living room, and are true to the Craftsman style. Tour the home, and meet the homeowners, in this VIDEO.

9. Ledgestone Accent Walls


This master bedroom suite shares a see-through natural gas fireplace, as well as a ledgestone wall, with a private outdoor seating area.


For design cohesiveness, the same stone was used for a floor-to-ceiling fireplace accent wall in the living room. Explore the full gallery of this award-winning project HERE.

10. Cosmetic Refresh


Even a few simple cosmetic changes – such as fresh paint, a floating mantel and shelves, and new wallpaper – can make a huge difference to a fireplace surround. Explore the full photo gallery HERE.
