What: This bedroom needed a beautiful focal point, room for a little photo display and space for a TV.How: The material of the fireplace surround is expanded far enough to allow for a niche for the TV. Recesses for the photos cut into the surround and extend past it into the wall. The long, horizontal niches built into this fireplace surround include lighting all along them to highlight the display items inside. Recessed spaces are very hard to illuminate well with spots from the ceiling because they cast shadows. A good plan for lighting assures that your display items will be seen and also adds an element of accent lighting to the room.Style: This asymmetrical design gives the space a distinctly contemporary look. The lighted niches visually balance the fireplace when lit. Large-format metallic tile is a great choice of material for the contemporary style.
