The temps have been seriously dropping around here, and we've got fireplaces on the brain. One trend we've noticing is wood not only inside the fireplace, but on the outside, too. From slick matchbooked panels to reclaimed boards, wood fireplace surrounds are something we're really warming up to.
One note of caution: allowed fireplace combustible clearances vary, so be sure to check with your local codes and fireplace manufacturer to stay safe.
