Popular in luxury homes during the 70`s and 80`s, corner gas fireplaces are set to make a strong comeback in 2019, but this time, they`re totally frameless. Available in two-sided and three-sided perspectives, designers and architects are using corner gas fireplaces in contemporary homes to define open concept living areas and to create eye-catching ambience.
This is an example of modern fireplace ideas that create a stunning monochromatic effect when paired with similar shades of wood furnishings. Wood paneling lends a timeless effect to a sleek, modern design, while the elevated hearth breaks up the large expanse of wood, keeping the look freshly clean. For a more striking look, dark wood paneling against a lighter floor and walls instantly draws the eye and makes for a natural entertaining area. The wood stacked along the wall lends a rustic, visually interesting touch that doesn`t disrupt the clean lines and sleek aesthetic. Beautiful plants in varying shades of green make this a perfect design for nature-lovers.
One of the benefits of a gas-burning fireplace is that they produce smokeless flames while preserving a clean look. This linear design is a great example of modern fireplace ideas, as it can be implemented in your home in a variety of ways. Instead of a wall separating the master bedroom from the bath, imagine a wall of gentle flames, their glow enhancing a soft white interior. This design would work equally well separating a living room from an enclosed patio, offering light and warmth when the temperature dips at night. The beauty of this subtle fireplace is that it can be customized to suit every need while lending charm to its surroundings.
No one would ever guess that your fireplace is builder grade with this clever DIY by Amanda Hervey, one of the three bloggers who writes for Our Storied Home. She used colorful Bali Turtle Pebble Tile in soothing blue and green shades to transform a beige hearth into an ocean-inspired fire surround. It took roughly eight, 12- inch sheets of the pebble mosaic tile to complete her project. Hervey suggests you can use leftover tiles to makeover other objects in your home like an old terra-cotta planter.
