Spring is just around the corner and many of us may be thinking about giving the house a full spring clean and redecoration after winter, this may involve a few rooms, just one room or the whole house. Here we explore what to think about when choosing a new fire and fireplace.

Colour scheme

Picking a new colour for any room is a big decision, we have a few tips for picking the best colour scheme.

  1. Choose a Color Scheme From the Largest Pattern in the Space
    If you’ve got patterned upholstery, a colourful rug or large piece of artwork, select colours you like from the pattern. For a neutral wall paint colour, look to the pattern’s whites and beiges. Our fireplaces come in many natural tones like greys, whites and creams. Have a look at our Inglenook fireplace picker to imagine what it would look like in your room.
  2. Back to Black
    Many designers advise adding a bit of black in every room because the black clarifies the rest of the room’s colours. There are many ways to add a pop of black when choosing a new fire and colours can be mixed with different coloured fireplaces to match.
  3. Showcase Your Personal Style
    If you decorate honestly, other people will appreciate it because it’s you, even if they’d never decorate their own house in the same way. That means if you want to make every room in your house red, white and blue, go for it. You can make any colour look good as long as it truly suits your personal style.


Flooring is such an important feature in any room, it needs to be right and it needs to match the rest of the room and of course, the fireplace. Did you know we offer 0% finance on fireplaces, fires and flooring? So its even easier to re-decorate your whole room. Call into the Studio Interiors showroom to have a look at our range of furniture and accessories too.

Here we look at what to think about when selecting the best type of flooring for you.

  1. Do You Have Pets, Children, or Any Other Extra Need for a Durable Floor? If the answer is yes then you will require flooring that is hard wearing such as laminate flooring, plank vinyl flooring, or even carpeting.
  2. Do You Want Flooring That Requires Very Little Maintenance? If this is the case for you, vinyl flooring is probably the best option. However, laminate flooring is pretty low maintenance but cannot stand too much moisture, so you’d need to pay close attention to the amount of water used when cleaning it.
  3. Do you want to make a bold statement? With solid hardwood, some may say you trade beauty for maintenance. Solid or engineered wood takes a lot of hard work to install, but it’s worth it. Rugs and runners can be placed on high traffic areas to maintain parts of the floor.

We hope we have provided some inspiration if you’re thinking about re-decorating. Of course, the best thing to do is pop into our showroom and have a look at the fires and flooring on display. Please contact us for more information.
