A modern fireplace and that is …….?

There’s no doubt a fireplace is the heart of every home. It brings both a unique atmosphere and warmth to every place. Apart from its practical functions, a fireplace also serves as a decorative element in every place it is located in. As a fireplace adds a lot of charm and character to any interior, it has to match the style of a house. If properly selected, a fireplace will complement and bring character to every interior whether minimalist, Scandinavian or modern. 

 

The main characteristics of modern fireplaces

Modern fireplaces do not resemble their predecessors. They are not excessively ornamented but are simple and plain in character. Due to such, rather not elaborate form, modern fireplaces ideally complement contemporary interior arrangements adding charm and expressiveness to them. Yet, such modest, minimalist forms do not rob them of their character and they will not make them disappear in the interior. They attract attention of home dwellers and visitors alike, straight away.

We can choose fireplaces with traditional open hearth, enclosed fireplaces and the ones with fireplace inserts. The most practical and the most frequently selected solution is an enclosed fireplace. Of the wide range of fireplaces, we can choose attractive models e.g. bio-fireplaces, considered to be an eco-version of traditional fireplaces, fireplaces with water-heating inserts, and also free-standing fireplaces, commonly known as potbelly stoves.

Ideas for modern arrangements with a fireplace being the focal point of a room:


• A fireplace with glass sides – a modern 3-sided fireplace, which can be installed in the central point of a living room catching everybody’s eye and creating a homely atmosphere of the entire interior.


• A corner fireplace – mounted in the corner, where two walls meet. It can also be installed between two rooms, making it visible from many places of our home.


• A floor-to-ceiling fireplace – an attractive proposal for a fireplace reaching the roof slope. It works well in very high interiors, where a roof functions as a ceiling. Its towering and massive figure becomes a focal point of a living room.
