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.
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.
Light it on fire, use it to decorate or do both, because wood is HOT this year! Advancements in combustion engineering technology have transformed the environmental efficiency of wood burning fireplaces. Modern wood burning fireplaces burn wood longer and more completely, which means owners of modern wood fireplaces spend less money on fuel, less time stoking the fire, and less time cleaning the ash drawer.
A fireplace is both a functional and decorative part of the home. It keeps you warm during the colder months. It also provides a focal point for the room. The look of a fireplace can make or break the decor of a room. If you are looking for ways to upgrade the look of your fireplace, use these fireplace design ideas to get your imagination started.
