Hi, looking for adding a fire place and tv replacing the existing one? And adding more decorations around?What is a good brand for fire place?We have a beam in the middle of the wall how to avoid showing it more?Thanks
Something extremely modern and minimal would look fabulous on that wall, gorgeous house.
I agree with modern and minimal for that space. I see a wall rcac so guessing the purpose is looks rather than heating function? Have you thought about the need for a non-flammable hearth, dry storage for firewood, a safety screen if children or pets might be around, and regular chimney cleaning? Lots of people buy into the idea of the ambience of a fireplace but few make the effort to operate and maintain them correctly. Perhaps think about an ethanol fireplace? It reduces the work involved for you and the undesirable effects on the environment.
interior design ideas -its very long!!
An interior designer..I am not.
Urgent interior design advice needed
Need ideas for exterior and interior colours for our coastal house
Thank you very much for your advice, this looks great? I was thinking of getting a longer fireplace around 1.5m and positioning it directly underneath the Tv, however there is a beam on the roof which will not be directly centred, and windows on either side of the wall. Do you think this will look good or is it better to position the fireplace on the side as seen in your images?
I think to the side as this will distract from the beam, from your photos it won’t be noticeable once you get the fireplace in… will look gorgeousI would add some gorgeous planters, add some precious pieces , love your coffee table, something special on your beautiful kitchen bench
The two windows
Hi professional designers, thank you for helping with the fireplace.
I was looking for a kitchen pendant light?
Also we have to replace all the old timber windows to aluminium windows what colour do you recommend?
I think the existing colour works fine so you could replicate that. Or timber-look aluminium to continue the timber theme but in a low-maintenance material. You can even get different colours on the interior and exterior these days if that helps. Importantly for a cold climate which I'm guessing you have with your heating, you'll want double glazing and if you're going aluminium rather than UPVC make sure it's the 'thermally broken' type.
I agree the existing colour works beautifully or black, that would completely change the look, it’s really whatever you love, regarding pendant, a light bar would look stunning, or minimal black pendants
Thank you for the ideas, I’m more comfortable with the white window frames as it blinds in with the walls, but my daughter likes black thanks again. I’m imagining it is big job.
What is the UPVC and thermally broken type?
If you love the white then stick with it, it does look beautiful from your photos and it blends beautifully with the view, much easier to decorate as well.
