Brick Fireplace Design for Contemporary Living Rooms

Creating a new brick fireplace design is a great way to change the look of your living room without spending a lot of money.  There are several different types of brick in all sorts of colors to customize your design to your specific tastes. 

Using Different Course Patterns

Installing a soldier course or using keystones are a great way to enhance your brick fireplace design and give your living room a classic and stately look.  The contrasting mortar joints and focal points of these design patterns provide a handsome accent to the brick design.

The Benefits of Accent Colors

Incorporating accent strips using contrasting color bricks are one way to break up the monotony of a standard brick wall.  For example, inserting a dark brown accent strip in a light tan brick wall will give the wall a warm and attractive look.  You can even insert accent bricks in random locations if installing an accent strip is a little too uniform.
