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.
Color blocking has been a major trend the past few years in everything from clothing to home design. Similarly, the DIY movement is making a huge comeback as the desire for unique, personal touches grows. This gorgeous fireplace combines both of those ideas to create a customizable look to match any decor. This look is simple to achieve and using a bright color against a largely neutral backdrop is an eye-catching element guaranteed to lend a polished air to any room. It`s particularly striking when you add small touches such as pillows or lampshades in the same color. A painted fireplace such as this one is the perfect way to express your creativity and personality!
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.
Concrete, granite, steel, and distressed wood are just a few popular materials adopted for the nouveau fireplace, with each module selected to compliment the interior setting. Inlaid or attached, modern fireplaces can accommodate entertainment systems or punctuate works of art, further allowing them to blend with one`s home and sensibilities, rather than stand apart from them.
