The heart of the home has always been the hearth. From cooking to entertaining, the bright flames flickering within attract family and friends to gather and share special memories with one another. Over the years, the fireplace has evolved from simple and functional to the beautifully designed fireplaces we enjoy today.
Modern fireplace designs incorporate form and functionality in equal measure. The following ideas will make your fireplace stand out:
- Inset wood storage. If you have a wood burning fireplace, set wood storage into the walls on both sides. If you have a gas fireplace, use these spaces to instead showcase statues or other collectibles.
- Create a show. Instead of boxing your fireplace up, consider installing a gas fireplace along the entire length of the wall.
- Make it unique. Don’t feel confined by squares and rectangles. Instead, incorporate curves, angles, and other non-traditional elements that will make your fireplace a work of art.
