What Houzz contributors are saying:
Perfect symmetry. Just because you love minimalist design doesn’t mean you have to go without when it comes to storage. This unit combines ample space in the lower cabinets with plenty of display space above. The natural timber contrasts nicely with the tiles wrapping around the fireplace surround. For a polished and professional-looking finish, custom-made cabinets are often the way to go. The cabinets work so well here because they align precisely with the top of the fireplace.
Those with a modern aesthetic often complain about the appearance of today's toys. The drawers that flank the fireplace in this image are a great solution. They are just the right height for children and are deep enough for even the bulkiest of plastic toys.
10. A great fireplace can often take a well-designed living room to the next level. This simple and modern fireplace surround makes a big statement in this room, without detracting from the exquisite furnishings and finishings.
This gorgeous fireplace shows you can take a more natural looking product and create a sleekly formated installation. It's incredibly modern in style, but still has a clean, earthy feel. The elongated tile set in a horizontal orientation adds serenity to the space.
The fireplace is a strong vertical feature in gray stacked stone, and paired with the dark floating cabinets, grounds the wall. Floating shelves and transom windows add lightness.
