Alex had a wooden shelf above his fireplace in his living room that he wanted to remove to make room for his TV. After removing the shelf, Alex surrounded his fireplace with our Desert Sunrise Stacked Stone product. Then, he installed wood paneling that complemented the paint and decor in the living room above the fireplace, which he mounted his TV on. A wooden mantle makes a great division between the fireplace and the TV, and it ties together the colors of the wood and the fireplace surround.
The DIY fireplace accent wall is one of our most popular interior projects with GenStone, and when you look at Alex’s easy fireplace surround, you can see why. The finished product is a beautiful wall that looks and feels like real stone but costs a fraction of the price, and you can do it yourself! For a project of this size, you can complete it in a single weekend.
Our panels are Class A rated for fire, so they are completely safe to use for an easy fireplace surround like Alex’s project. They are cast from natural stone, so they have the look and feel of natural stone.
