Look at the cabinets on the right. Great storage!!!
Not quite so grand, but you get the idea that there is an overmantle with built-in storage on either side of the fireplace. Good ideas...not quite the style I was looking for.
Overmantle kind of like this...
Taller cabinets on either side of the fireplace. We could do the shelves (but add lights), but then have another set of cabinets above.
Look how they did a wood burning insert with a stone fireplace mantle.
Look at the seating options....a couch, then a chair on each side of the coffee table...then a bench by the fireplace itself.
fireplace and cabinets flush against same wall....love it. Also, notice how they have a cupboard, then a drawer, then a cupboard, then another cupboard...lots of storage
See how there is space on either side of the mantle of just wall...we need that before the storage doors start.
Trying to decide if the mantel should come out more than the side storage cupboard. Hmm...
Trying to decide if the mantel and entire wall above it should come out more than the side storage cupboards. Hmm...
Mantel and wall above coming out just a bit further than the side storage cupboards....hmm...
all one wall depth? mantel and cupboards?
