The fireplace becomes a hub in the home no matter where you place it, but usually it is seen in the living room and it would have different finishes as well as made of different materials. Some use concrete, while still others use wood. But a common material used for a fireplace from the old days until now is the bricks. Not only do these look beautiful, but it gives a natural look to a home. And when you are tired of looking at the natural brick finish, you can always paint it. Yes, brick fireplaces can be painted with the colors you want!
I know it sounds great that you can actually paint on your own brick fireplace! Because of that, we have collected some pictures of painted fireplaces in the living room. The common colors used for fireplaces are white and gray, but I guess there is nothing wrong with trying other colors as well. But what you will see on this list is more of white, gray and beige – which of course are the perfect colors for a fireplace, especially if you want a more neutral appeal. Now scroll down and look at what we have for you.
1. Remodel of braircrest
I love the colors and textures used in this living room. What added to the beauty of the room is the gray painted brick fireplace! It looks really modern when done this way.
2. Nelson House Wolfe & Wolfe Home
You can also use this color for your fireplace. Note that it is just a little darker than the wall of the house. It is also nice to add black and white furniture to the living room.
Another gray fireplace where a large work of art is installed. By doing this, the living room looked even more beautiful. Although the fireplace used a dark color, the area still seemed bright because of the windows around it.
4. Midtown East Residence
Here is a perfect contrast between white and gray. And on the sides of the fireplace are open shelves where books are arranged according to their colors. Nice, right?
5. Cool Ranch House
I love it here! Instead of just painting the fireplace with a color, the owners decided to turn it into an accent wall with a geometric design on it. I also like that colorful throw pillows were used in the house and that it has striped curtains in blue and white. And of course, that chair looks really interesting!
6. Amagansett Modern Farmhouse
I know the antler crowns used here are interesting, but what is more attractive is the glaze used for the fireplace, which made it seem a little shiny.
7. Mountain Craftsman Residence
If you want to keep a bit of the structure of the brick while painting it white, you can launder it like this, resulting in a stunning artisan space with a subtle shabby chic appeal.
8. Carmel Mid-Century LEED
But of course, if you want it to look much nicer, paint it all in white like this living room. What I love in here is the combination of white and wood. Such a nice contrast! Apart from that, the structures also look really good!
9. Hollywood Chic living room
Another money laundering painted brick fireplace for a modern living room. Although the fireplace is not lit, this space looks warm and cozy due to the colors and lighting.
10. Eleanor Street # 1
A light gray color also looks great on your fireplace. I love the mid-century feel of this living room!
A contrast of black and white is used in this living room, where it used large furniture that looks almost baroque. I’m sure you’ve noticed the design of the coffee tables. Very interesting, right?
12. Craftsman Family Home | Ocean Park
Another black fireplace for a craft home. It is a good idea to paint this with black as it adds more appeal to the area.
13. Gender neutral style
Yes, it is black, but it looks more like charcoal to me with a wooden sheath carrying lovely items on it. I actually love the way this room is decorated from throw pillows and everything!
14. Pacific Heights
Dark gray is used for this fireplace, which also has wooden elements on. It is, of course, a spacious living area covered with carpet.
15. Black painted brick in the USA
There are many interesting features in this living room from the fireplace to the wood storage. I also like the lighting as well as the patterns on that sofa. Is not this a very bright living room?
16. Lagoon House
I like how the colors are distributed around the living room from rugs to throw pillows. It is also a good idea to use dirty white for the fireplace.
17. Living room
A combination of concrete, wood and brick resulted in a beautiful living room! You can see that the modern fireplace sits right there on the brick part. I so love the modern contemporary appeal of this home!
18. Scandinavian-inspired family home
A beautiful Scandinavian home with so many white colors around itself on the fireplace. What breaks its whiteness is touches of powder blue and some wood features.
19. Newport Beach Residence
This is definitely a cozy living room with a fireplace that has some beige colors on. What made this cozier are the floor-to-ceiling window on one side and the comfortable sofa.
20. Greenwich, CT
Contrasting colors are used in this living room, but at this angle you can see what is the real color of the fireplace, in it are interior walls as it is not painted black.
Interesting, right? The painted fireplaces in brick you have seen above got a unique feel and it turned out really nice. You can see that due to the updated fireplace, the whole living room looked beautiful and it definitely fits into the current style that the owners wanted for their home. Other than that, the fireplace looked even more beautiful like the living room in the center. This is a great way to refresh a space while preserving its historical value, especially if you live in a home that has been there for ages! So what about you, would you also paint your fireplaces? If so, what color do you have in mind?
