Masonry fireplaces have a special charm that makes them much better than prefab ones. As they are usually built while the house is constructed, they match the style and the proportions of the interiors much better than ready-made ones.
If you’d like to add this feature to your new house or to an older one, you can search online for inspiration. There are a few places where you’ll find exquisite masonry fireplaces examples to suit any taste or personal preference. Pinterest is probably the best place to seek for inspiration. This social network is at the same time a visual search engine. This means that you can type your desired keywords into a search box and get results that are relevant to your query. Once you click on one of the results, you’ll probably find a whole collection created by that Pinterest user. Furthermore, you’ll be able to save these ideas for later by signing up for a Pinterest account and by creating some boards where to pin the images you’d like to keep. Like this, you’ll have an easier time at sharing your findings with your architect or with the builder who’s going to help you get the work done.
You may also find some interesting ideas by using the Google image search. However, you won’t be able to save them for later unless you pin them to your Pinterest boards, or you bookmark their associated web pages in your browser.
Last but not least, you can try to search for images on Instagram and on Facebook. If you’re also looking for a builder to handle your project, pay attention to the Facebook pages and websites of such contractors in your neighborhood. They may showcase their best work anyway, so you’ll have the opportunity to find even more creative ideas.
