This is an example of modern fireplace ideas that create a stunning monochromatic effect when paired with similar shades of wood furnishings. Wood paneling lends a timeless effect to a sleek, modern design, while the elevated hearth breaks up the large expanse of wood, keeping the look freshly clean. For a more striking look, dark wood paneling against a lighter floor and walls instantly draws the eye and makes for a natural entertaining area. The wood stacked along the wall lends a rustic, visually interesting touch that doesn`t disrupt the clean lines and sleek aesthetic. Beautiful plants in varying shades of green make this a perfect design for nature-lovers.
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.
Today`s modern fireplaces not only keep your home basked in that long-savored firelight, but offer a convenience not readily enjoyed by our forefathers. With updated gas components, which allow one to flip a switch and instantly luxuriate in hearth ambience, rather than labor over logs and starter fluids, modern fireplaces also come in a range of designs that implement all your household values while maintaining the fireplace`s traditional place in the home.
This square, blocky design feels almost like a blank canvas. With its neutral color palette and straight lines, it`s easy to think of this fireplace as too plain, but a closer look reveals subtle details that complement any modern home. For instance, the curved stone of the façade softens the hard edges and gently radiates heat throughout a room. The small hearth in front evokes memories of sitting a bit too close to the fire with a warm drink on cold nights. It can set the stage for a large, show-stopping piece of art or holiday-specific decorations. The simplicity and functionality of this fireplace are ultimately its greatest features, and it will figure beautifully and seamlessly into just about any home.
