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.
The beauty of these fireplace design ideas is that you can find one or more as inspiration. Then, combine the elements that appeal to create your own look. You can keep the changes to the mantle and below or go as far as the ceiling. The decision is yours.
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.
A gorgeous slab of charcoal marble turns a traditional fireplace into a modern focal point in this home remodeled by Watts Studio situated in Australia. Notice the hearth pad? It was cut from the same slab. Contributing to the room`s bold yet minimalist aesthetic is the low profile furnishings. The red velvet armchair punches things up with a bright pop of color.
