Tall Smooth Concrete Fireplace, Toronto ON
Creating a gorgeous interior concrete fireplace surround for this upscale York Mills, Toronto residence presented us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the beauty that smooth, charcoal concrete tiles have to offer. As you can see in this home, smooth concrete tiles create a linear design and offer a floor-to-ceiling approach that truly makes a statement in this residential space.
Two Storey Concrete Fireplace
The appearance of smooth concrete is subtle and sleek, which lends the opportunity to create a statement piece out of a family fireplace. Sitting against a crisp, white two-storey wall and paired beautifully with matching floating shelves, the final aesthetic is glamorous and sophisticated, demonstrating that the aesthetic of concrete in a fireplace concrete surround is flexible and adaptable to each unique environment. This look can be achieved at any height with installation on a wood frame build-out structure and there are no limits to the multi-storey approach of this design, thanks to the lightweight character of concrete.
Creative Design with Concrete
As you can see in this design, concrete does not need to stand alone as a design piece; in this home, end tables and floating shelves are used to complement the fireplace and create a look that is grounded and complete. Together, the floating shelves create a focal point in the living space which is modern and sleek, the centrepiece of the room at which everything is directed towards.
Concrete Fireplaces with Unlimited Designs
This project uses 18’x24’ concrete panels, however larger panels are available which can create an even more subtle look and feel with a similar design. The charcoal concrete is used in combination with the smooth texture, which results in a modern appearance. However, if lighter colours were used in combination with distressed or raw concrete, the end result would be more industrial and suitable to an aesthetic that relies on modern industrial chic design.
The flexibility of concrete gives way to creating multi-storey displays, and in this example produced a concrete fireplace surround that is both a statement piece and focal point in this family’s living space.
