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.
The beauty of these fireplace design ideas is that you can find one or more as inspiration. Then, combine the elements that appeal to create your own look. You can keep the changes to the mantle and below or go as far as the ceiling. The decision is yours.
Fireplaces can fit into any space. Wood can create a classic library fireplace, a modern hearth or a transitional focal point. Stone can be smooth, rough, stacked or fitted. It can retain its natural finish or get a coat of paint. Color contrast creates drama.
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.
