Painting a red brick fireplace white is a clean, modern, and timeless idea as shown with this newly built example in a modern farmhouse inspired den by Erin and Kirsten, the interior designers behind House of Jade Interiors based in Utah. The fireplace was constructed using reclaimed bricks. The duo points out that brick is super porous and it will take multiple coats of paint to cover adequately. For a pinch of contrast, the hearth pad features black and white square tile laid out in a harlequin inspired pattern.
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!
A fireplace can be a fantastic addition to a home. With new design elements gaining popularity, it`s no problem to find a fireplace that not only fits your budget but also blends seamlessly into your decor. Of course, with so many designs to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start, so it`s important to really evaluate your needs. In this way, you can be sure of making an investment that will make you happy and keep you warm and cozy for years to come.
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.
