If there is one thing in the living room that would get our attention, it could either be the furniture or the fireplace. For homes that have a fireplace, it becomes the center or focal point of the space especially if it has a stunning design. Most of the time, the fireplace and entertainment system are located on the same area making them both a highlight in the living room. A fireplace could be made from various materials which includes concrete. With that, we are going to show you different concrete fireplace designs.

Using concrete for the fireplace may not sound appealing for some because of its industrial and unfinished look. But the natural look of concrete actually looks very gorgeous when done rightly. Some fireplaces even left some cracks on it intentionally for more visual appeal. Others would be creative in casting the concrete by using some forms that would live a unique striation on the fireplace. But the fireplace’s design will also vary on the kind of space you have and the location of such. It will also depend of the style you want for your fireplace. What is good with using concrete is that you can decide your design and it can be done in that manner.
