  1. Be sure to consider the style of your existing interior decor, the type of heating appliance you have, and the size and material of the surround.
  2. Consider using one type of tile for the entire surround, or mix things up by selecting complementary styles for the back panel, hearth, and surrounding area.
  3. Avoid going too large, or the fireplace can take over the room..
  4. Wood surrounds are an affordable alternative to pricier options such as marble and stone. You can even find wood-look tile at low prices.
  5. Stone and marble provide a wow factor and can handle larger amounts of weight, making them a good choice if you plan to display various treasures and decor pieces on top of the mantle.
