8 ways to warm up to wooden fireplace surrounds.

Blame it on our “Fixer Upper” addiction or nostalgia for fun times spent in grandpa’s basement, but we have gone gaga for fireplace surrounds featuring planking. With an endless array of material options, it’s no surprise this treatment works with virtually any interior style, from farmhouse to coastal to minimalist-modern and everything in between. Whether you’re tackling one wall weekend-warrior style, making over an entire room or planning details for a brand-new home, these planked fireplace walls are sure to get the creative juices flowing. One note of caution: Fireplace combustible clearances vary, so be sure to consult your local fireplace dealer to stay safe.
