So many times, I see homes with a lovely fireplace in their great room and a lovely kitchen nearby – but they don’t look like they belong in the same house. Here’s some inspiration to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
Should your fireplace in the great room relate to your kitchen?
Yes, it definitely should.
Your Fireplace Should Look Like it Belongs with Your Kitchen Design
Here is some inspiration from kitchens and great rooms that are not necessarily from the same house (actually only the first one is) but sure look like they could be:
This traditional kitchen and great room look like they belong together with similar styles and the blue colour palette.

A white millwork fireplace pairs perfectly with a classic, all-white kitchen.
These yellow kitchen cabinets are definitely a colour that should be repeated in your great room, just like these soft yellows in the decor and wall coverings of this great room on the right.
A modern, wood fireplace belongs with a modern kitchen design.
This lovely stone fireplace looks right at home next to a warm and rustic kitchen.
Again, lots of custom white millwork/moldings in the great room relates nicely to white millwork kitchen cabinets.
This fresh blue and green colour palette in the great room shouldn’t be ignored. And, this white kitchen punctuated with pops of bright green brings harmony to both spaces.
Are you happy with the way your great room relates to the kitchen? You’d be surprised how often this connection is not considered by renovators or builders!
If you aren’t happy, but just can’t put your finger on what is wrong with the space, I can help you with one of my eDesign consultations.
Have a great weekend everyone! xo Maria
