Keep it neutral

Painted fireplaces are a great way to add a touch of style to any room. Black, brown, cream and other natural shades can give your fireplace a more sophisticated look than brighter tones. 

Choose a colour that will complement your existing décor. For example, cream-painted fireplaces complement minimalist spaces with white artwork and neutral furnishings. The lighter tones keep the space clean and crisp, while the wood-burning fire exudes cosiness. Turn your living room into the ultimate relaxation space with a cream-coloured fireplace. 

Alternatively, if you prefer something a little more dramatic in your home – a black painted fireplace is a great place to start. Black fireplaces are often seen as more sophisticated and stylish than other colours, making them ideal for homes wanting to make a statement. You could go for a black painted brick fireplace or an entire fireplace custom-made in a high-gloss dark colour.

JC Bordelet’s Alexia 995 comes in a range of neutral tones and demonstrates the precise artisanal skill of the designer. The shape of this central fireplace was originally inspired by an inverted glass, and it is a very complex item to make. The suspended canopy appears to be floating above the flames, adding a whimsical touch to your home. You can choose between four standard paint finishes for the Alexia 995: black, anthracite, chocolate and taupe. 

Up the gloss

High-gloss fireplaces are all about glamour. Their sleek, shiny surfaces reflect light and create a dramatic focal point in any room. Whether you prefer traditional stone fireplaces or something a little more modern, a high gloss finish will add a touch of sophistication to your home. Here at Caleo, we have a wide range of luxury high-gloss lacquer finishes available. You can choose between vibrant reds and oranges to more subdued natural tones.

There are a few things to keep in mind when styling a high gloss finish fireplace. First, choose colours and materials that will complement the glossy surface. Second, use gentle cleaners and polishes to avoid damaging the finish. Finally, be mindful of how you arrange your furniture and decorations to prevent scratches or other damage.

Bold and bright 

A colourful fireplace makes a room pop. From a bold statement piece in the living room to a fun accent in the bedroom, a colourful fireplace is sure to add personality and style to any space. And best of all, there’s no need to sacrifice function for style –these fireplaces are fully functional and ready to keep you warm all winter long.

JC Bordelet even released a Safari range for the Eva 992, featuring animal prints. Nothing says bold and bright like a leopard print luxury fireplace. 

From bright blues to vibrant greens, there’s sure to be a colour that’s perfect for your space. And with so many different styles and designs to choose from, you’re sure to find the right one for your home.

A pop of orange 

JC Bordelet’s Zelia 908 in orange is one of our favourite painted fireplaces. The high-gloss finish paired with the burnt orange shade is a winning combination. Whether you have a traditional or contemporary style home, an orange fireplace can make a beautiful addition. Here are some tips on how to style an orange fireplace in your home:

  • Choose an eye-catching orange hue for your fireplace surround. A deep, rich orange will add a touch of luxury, while a lighter, brighter orange will give your fireplace a more contemporary feel.
  • Consider adding some accent pieces in complementary colours to really make your fireplace stand out. For example, if you have a dark orange fireplace, try adding some light green or blue accents.
  • If you want to really make a statement, consider painting your fireplace surround in a high-gloss finish. This will create a sleek and sophisticated look that is sure to turn heads.
