Few can deny the nostalgic joy of a good old fashioned fireplace, to say nothing of the warmth and heavenly glow provided on a long cold night or at an intimate gathering.
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.
The long, narrow shape and sturdy steel construction of this modern design ensure that a maximum of heat radiates throughout the room. Its beautiful, long lines are the perfect addition to high ceilings, while the width of the hearth itself makes a room seem full of warmth and comfort. Dipping down into a sunken seating area, this fireplace creates an instantly inviting area for entertaining or lounging. Offset the stark black with quirky furnishings and pops of color for a unique, personal atmosphere.
A fireplace should be cozy, so you might be inclined to stay away from a modern design for fear it`ll look too cold and stark—but that`s a serious misconception. Sure, it can definitely read that, and if that`s what you`re going for, more power to you, but you don`t have to sacrifice homey vibes in the name of clean lines. Let these fireplaces prove to you that modern is the move.
