Where there's smoke, there's fire, except in the case of this electric fireplace ablaze with faux flames that burn as brightly as real fire. The silver-blue undertones of the Reclaimed Weathered Wood planks that comprise the wood plank fireplace wall make the neon blue aura of the hearth look all the more hypnotic.

Meanwhile, the brown overtones of the wood wall planks allow the floating hearth to retain a down-to-earth sensibility. A flat-screen television mounted high on the reclaimed wood wall completes the DIY fireplace surround and turns the once blah background wall into a thing of beauty.

Sierra Gold Paneling Adds Cheer to Metal-Plated Fireplaces

Metal-plated fireplaces go from doom-and-gloom to va-va-voom with the addition of multicolored interior wood plank walls behind them. The panoply of yellow, red, and brown on the floor-to-ceiling wood plank fireplace wall of this sitting room gives an unexpected jolt of jolliness to the subdued metallic faceplate flanking the hearth.

The Sierra Gold wood planks used to create the wood wall emphasize the clean lines of the fireplace and visually separate the waist of the DIY fireplace surround from its upper half to add depth and dimension to the sitting room.

Nature Gray Planks Lend Graceful Glamour to Unused Fireplaces

To turn the eyesore of an unused or inoperable fireplace into eye candy, think outside the firebox for design inspiration. A homely hearth no more, this mantel regained its spark with the help of an ornate DIY fireplace surround and a wood plank fireplace wall made of reclaimed white weathered wood paneling.

The white undertones of the wood wall planks play up the noble white patina of the fireplace surround and its fanciful fretwork. Nature-inspired accents planted nearby, including a firebox chock full of timber, greenery on the mantle, and wall-mounted portraits of leaves around the wood wall fireplace all conspire to create a picture of perfection.

Visually arresting though it may be, a marble fireplace can overpower a wall with no tonal or textural variation. The DIYers behind this family room averted a style crisis by installing a herringbone wood plank fireplace wall made of Hamptons reclaimed wood planks.

The diagonal seams created by the staggered ivory planks align with the marbling on the fireplace to give the impression that the herringbone pattern extends beyond the interior wood plank walls. A sprinkling of geometric-inspired cushions, window dressings, and table toppers solidify the playful personality of the fun zone.

Small tykes or pets might nix your plans to install a fireplace in your man or ma’am cave. But you can still cozy up the space with a flame-free virtual fire that roars at the flip of a remote control through a television on a wood plank fireplace wall. Reclaimed wood fireplace walls like this peel and stick wood wall made of Reclaimed Weathered Wood planks provide the ideal canvas for a media hub equipped with entertainment essentials like a flat-screen TV.

Paired with the digital flames, the distressed patina of the DIY fireplace surround transports you to a smoky campsite in the woods every time you enter the den. But instead of lounging around in a makeshift tent, you’ll be cradled in the comfort of a wrap-around sofa and a wicker coffee table in the foreground of the wood wall fireplace.
