As any homeowner can tell you, a fireplace is an incredible addition to a home. But some homeowners prefer a look that’s a little less traditional and think that a fireplace might compromise their modern style. They couldn’t be more wrong. Fireplace design styles have increased over the years and offer a wide range of options that suit even the most unique sensibilities. We’ll show you three modern style fireplaces you need to see.
1- Modern Style Multi-View Fireplaces
It’s common to picture a fireplace located in a living room along an exterior wall. But many newer homes with contemporary floor plans create a whole new world of options for fireplaces. One modern style fireplace that works well in contemporary homes is a multi-view fireplace.
A multi-view fireplace can be located on a wall that separates two rooms, such as a living room and a kitchen or even a bedroom and attached bathroom. The multi-view fireplace allows you to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a gas fireplace in multiple rooms of the house. The style of multi-view fireplaces is also more modern in appearance, with sleek, clean lines and design features.
2 – Linear See Through Fireplace
Another modern style fireplace that’s popular is a linear see through fireplace. Much like a multi-view fireplace, linear see through fireplaces allow the fireplace to be enjoyed from multiple rooms. These don’t require a safety screen, so you get a clear view of the fire as it glows and heats your home. A linear see-through fireplace offers flexibility as far as installation is concerned. Depending on where it’s installed on the wall, you can safely hang electronics above it without concern.
You can also customize the appearance of these fireplaces. There are options available that allow you to add rocks, glass beads and more to have your fireplace truly reflect your personal style. You can even control your linear see through fireplace from your mobile device and adjust anything you’d like, including the lighting in the ember bed.
3 – Wall Hanging Fireplace
When looking for a modern style fireplace, many people don’t realize that adding a fireplace can be as simple as hanging it on the wall. A wall hanging fireplace provides extreme ease of installation. Since it’s electric, you don’t have to worry about having a gas line run for it. It’s even easy to use as both the height and color of the flame can be adjusted with the touch of a button. One of the best parts about it is that it doesn’t take up much space. When installed, a wall hanging fireplace sticks out only five inches from the wall. And if you prefer, you can also have it installed to be fully recessed into the wall. From colors to type of installation, a wall hanging fireplace gives you lots of options to customize your perfect fireplace.
