As days get shorter and weather gets colder, we retreat indoors to the warmth of our homes, but nothing makes a home more inviting than a warm and cozy fireplace.

As a focal point, a fireplace can set the tone for the whole style of your home.

Look around you…

Most homes, if they have a fireplace at all, have the typical and old MDF or rough brick style. However, if you want to create an ultimate look for your home and to provide a modern design, a fireplace made of tile can be your solution.

Tiling a fireplace surround is an elegant upgrade well worth the effort. In a few days, you can upgrade the heart of your home, taking it from date-night cliché to elegant entertainment spot ready to impress.

Here are a few of Rubi´s favored designs, which are sure to create an eye-catching centerpiece in any environment:

We understand that the space in which you live is an expression of your individual style, with the fireplace forming the very heart of your home.

It is a focal point that not only extends the warmest of welcomes to your family and friends, around which they will gather naturally, but it also offers you the opportunity to make a design statement that defines the room even when the fire is not lit.
