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.
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.
Choosing a fireplace that doubles as a geometric work of modern art is a surefire way to make a statement. With a bold aesthetic that looks more like it belongs in a museum, this modern fireplace absolutely does not fade into the background. The corner placement is a unique design element, making use of a space that generally isn`t the focal point of a room. With a large, comfortable chair and sleekly modern home decor, you can create a gorgeous reading nook or workspace anyone would be proud to have in their home.
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.
