How do I balance an off-centre fireplace?
January 13, 2014
Patio doors, soon-to-be gas fireplace and a 90 degree WALL...all open and facing the kitchen. How do I balance it and make a great entertaining area? Help! At the start of clearing out for a Reno of some kind...right side wall goes on for 10ft before kitchen starts. LMK thoughts pls :)

What is your style? Traditional? Contempiorary? Is the TV already placed somewhere in the room?

First, let me just say this room will truly be a great space for entertaining. I'd first work on the fireplace since it is the focal point of the room. Go with clean easy lines, looking at your idea-boards you seem to have a modern flare to your style. I'd remove the beam/mantel and introduce a warm metal for the surround. This will enhance the room but not overpower the space. Do you plan to keep the wall color or are you moving towards a different color palette?
