A monochromatic theme creates a calm peaceful feeling. Tile offers a completely custom look that can blend with the background or create a brilliant focus. Straight lines, curves, carvings and rustic wood, mix and match as you please. You can find something to fit your decor among these fireplace design ideas.
This square, blocky design feels almost like a blank canvas. With its neutral color palette and straight lines, it`s easy to think of this fireplace as too plain, but a closer look reveals subtle details that complement any modern home. For instance, the curved stone of the façade softens the hard edges and gently radiates heat throughout a room. The small hearth in front evokes memories of sitting a bit too close to the fire with a warm drink on cold nights. It can set the stage for a large, show-stopping piece of art or holiday-specific decorations. The simplicity and functionality of this fireplace are ultimately its greatest features, and it will figure beautifully and seamlessly into just about any home.
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.
The best modern fireplaces, much like the best modern homes, pay homage to the past without being restricted by it; they incorporate the best of what came before while looking ahead and welcoming what is to come.
