And while many homes built during certain periods feature built-in fireplaces, they may require an update to keep with the times and one`s personal needs.
Fireplaces can fit into any space. Wood can create a classic library fireplace, a modern hearth or a transitional focal point. Stone can be smooth, rough, stacked or fitted. It can retain its natural finish or get a coat of paint. Color contrast creates drama.
The incomparable joy of gathering around a fire with your loved ones or reflecting in solitude on the crackling flames will never go out of style. We may live in seductively convenient times, but some things simply can`t be replaced. The fireplaces of today not only celebrate what connects us to our early brothers, but continue to earn their rightful place as modern heirlooms for generations to come.
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.
