Aside from being sexy AF, going dark on your fireplace can have several advantages. While the moody hue can provide a sophisticated base and ground your space, it can have the added advantage of concealing dust and ash (the perpetual downfall of the traditional fireplaces).

Glazed brick tiles, large format porcelain or even luxe marble can bring composure to your calm and alluring space.
