Need help with corner in living room

We originally were going to put a pellet stove in the corner. We have just purchased a ductless air conditioning unit with heat & no longer need a pellet stove. We are still lying tile on the hearth. PLEASE HELP WITH ANY IDEAS !! I am at a loss .....

Very nice job! I think it pretty much needs some type of freestanding wood or pellet stove.

If you don't need the hearth, I would remove it.

We just spent 200.00 on tile for hearth .. He would never remove it. I need ideas as of what I can put there, other than a pellet stove ......

The stone you've put up on the wall is beautiful and could be a feature wall in the room without a pellet stove. Maybe put a corner shelving unit in and let the stone show through the back. But I would take out the hearth if I were you. I had two of them in my house after the previous owners left them without a stove, and I was always tripping on them. It also would hamper your ability to utilize that corner for furniture. Good luck!

you could have a fabulous water feature there. browse around here and pinterest and local pond and garden stores for ideas. i'm not talking a little fountain. you'd need to do somework, talk with pros and make this a true design feature bringing a little outside in.

What about some kind of custom water fountain? Maybe add a custom built free standing corner cabinet with a big screen TV on top? Custom fish aquarium to fit in space? How about looking for some kind of large sculptured piece of art work. Turn it into a planter box by add a curb (like a shower) fill it with rock pebbles and add different sizes of potted plants. Corner wood shelves going across to display items. A throne chair for the king of the house. Okay I'm getting silly. Wow! I'm stumped?

I definitely wouldn't remove it. Add a fireplace mantel or wood stove depending on your taste. You can use gel cans, gas logs, electric or candles just for the look. You can order a fireplace cabinet on line with your choice of finish. Or you could shop around for a cool looking wood stove. These are corner models. I like the high one but you wouldn't want to cover your tile. If you have the budget you could have something custom built.
