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.
A gorgeous slab of charcoal marble turns a traditional fireplace into a modern focal point in this home remodeled by Watts Studio situated in Australia. Notice the hearth pad? It was cut from the same slab. Contributing to the room`s bold yet minimalist aesthetic is the low profile furnishings. The red velvet armchair punches things up with a bright pop of color.
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.
For a modern and minimalistic style, a geometric fireplace in bright white acts as a stunning focal point of any room. The large size and clean lines make it a design feature that you can base the rest of your decor around. This type of fireplace works best in a home with a large, open floorplan, providing the illusion of creating two separate spaces. This is not a trendy design, though minimalism is very hip right now. Rather, when used in a two-color scheme it creates a timeless aesthetic that, much like fresh flowers and a full bookshelf, will never go out of fashion.
