Talk about having presence! The combination of heavy dark wood and delicate glass create an intriguing atmosphere, making your home feel comfortable and ultra-modern at the same time. The unique shape of this modern fireplace provides storage for your fuel while also evoking a piece of modern art. The elevation of the fire itself makes cleaning much easier than the standard hands-and-knees affair, while your extra wood is beautifully displayed and within reach. It goes perfectly with minimalistic furniture and natural wood floors, while small pops of color and whimsical home decor keep this fireplace from seeming too austere.
Not only does a contemporary fireplace instantly become a breathtaking focal point for any room, but with new advances in energy efficiency, they have never been so cost-effective. Many people are choosing to go with direct-vent fireplaces, or have direct-vent inserts placed in their existing fireplaces. These direct vents remove the combustible elements of a fire while still retaining warmth and radiating heat. They are a great, eco-friendly way to get the most out of your fireplace. The best part is, they work with just about any design!
This stunning design is all about modern, clean lines. The clear glass of the chimney ensures that all emissions are carried out of your home, without obstructing the view. This modern fireplace design is perfect for a spacious, light-filled home and beautifully echoes the large glass windows for a continuous theme throughout the living area. The mirror finish of the base gives the illusion of a floating fire, while opening up the floor plan. Pale wood floors and neutral furnishings ensure that this luxurious design will be the focal point of any room, making it the perfect centerpiece for an inviting entertaining area.
Not ready for a new fireplace? You can still get in on this year`s hot refinishing trend. If you already have a fireplace, consider refinishing your existing hearth to instantly update the look of a room. If you`re suffering from cold chimney draft, install a wood, gas or pellet fireplace insert for instant warmth, added style and a reduced monthly home heating bill.
