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.
For nearly a decade Kate, an avid renovator and decorator, has been dishing out expert interior design advice on her blog Centsational Style. Here she shares how this fireplace built in the 1980s was made over with beautiful patterned cement tile. It took 34, eight-inch square tiles to get the job done with the help of 1/4 inch spaces. Before getting started she removed the original drywall mantel. After installing the new tile, she added a new wood mantel.
This stunning design is all about modern, clean lines. The clear glass of the chimney ensures that all emissions are carried out of your home, without obstructing the view. This modern fireplace design is perfect for a spacious, light-filled home and beautifully echoes the large glass windows for a continuous theme throughout the living area. The mirror finish of the base gives the illusion of a floating fire, while opening up the floor plan. Pale wood floors and neutral furnishings ensure that this luxurious design will be the focal point of any room, making it the perfect centerpiece for an inviting entertaining area.
Today`s modern fireplaces not only keep your home basked in that long-savored firelight, but offer a convenience not readily enjoyed by our forefathers. With updated gas components, which allow one to flip a switch and instantly luxuriate in hearth ambience, rather than labor over logs and starter fluids, modern fireplaces also come in a range of designs that implement all your household values while maintaining the fireplace`s traditional place in the home.
