And while many homes built during certain periods feature built-in fireplaces, they may require an update to keep with the times and one`s personal needs.
Concrete, granite, steel, and distressed wood are just a few popular materials adopted for the nouveau fireplace, with each module selected to compliment the interior setting. Inlaid or attached, modern fireplaces can accommodate entertainment systems or punctuate works of art, further allowing them to blend with one`s home and sensibilities, rather than stand apart from them.
If you are the type of person who craves a bold living space, something far different and more unique than the average, try a molded fireplace set into the wall. The ultra-modern shape boasts lusciously curved lines that mimic the organic waves of flames, resulting in a fascinating combination of the natural and the man-made. This is not a design for everyone, but whether you love it or hate it, you cannot deny it has style. Allow it to be the center of attention with unassuming furniture and a clean black and white color scheme.
A gorgeous slab of charcoal marble turns a traditional fireplace into a modern focal point in this home remodeled by Watts Studio situated in Australia. Notice the hearth pad? It was cut from the same slab. Contributing to the room`s bold yet minimalist aesthetic is the low profile furnishings. The red velvet armchair punches things up with a bright pop of color.
