Stainless-steel fireplaces are clean-lined and stylish. For an elegant, high-end look, these homeowners have created big impact by hanging one oversized artwork above the fireplace, leaving enough blank space so it can “breathe” and not completely fill the wall. Let the width measurements of your firebox guide the size of your art: slightly narrower or slightly wider works better than exactly the same width.
And take advantage of any space near the fireplace to stack firewood high. The look of cut timber adds a special ski lodge feel to the room.
