Fashionable & Functional Fireplace Trends
When you think about the perfect fireplace for your home, what do you see?
Do you see a traditional fireplace perfectly situated in the main living room, surrounded by authentic stone and finished with a beautiful wood mantel? Or, do you see a chic, linear fireplace with a ribbon flame dancing through crystals in the Master bedroom? Whatever your dream fireplace looks like, it’s a fact that new technology, materials and ideas mean that you’re limited only by your imagination – here’s a look at some of the latest trends in fireplace design and innovation.
Fireplaces in every room.
Fireplaces are no longer just for living rooms. It’s common for homeowners to have fireplaces in their bedrooms and even to their bathrooms, where smaller models like the Heat & Glo Soho bring a spa-like quality to the room. Kitchens are another place where fireplaces are showing up more often, recalling the kitchen’s traditional place as the hearth and heart of the home. And don’t forget the backyard! New advances in fireplace technology allow you to choose from a range of fireplaces that look just like those found indoors, but are completely safe and weatherproof for outdoor use. Take for example the Heat & Glo Carolina. This beautiful fireplace is the perfect focal point for an outdoor living room.
Fireplaces as a focal point.
Today’s modern style fireplaces with stylized flames surrounded by colored glass and shiny metal are worlds away from the traditional brick fireplaces of the past. Modern fireplace designs like the Heat & Glo Solaris are pushing boundaries with radical ideas that incorporate both function and beauty. Contemporary-style fireplaces rebel by being installed higher up on the wall, making them a glowing, glimmering work of art that “comes to life” with the flip of a switch.
New materials, styles and finishes.
Realistic log sets, FireBrick Refractory and LED light-infused, glowing ember beds have made today’s traditional gas fireplace better than ever. New fireplaces like the Heat & Glo True also feature extra large viewing areas and intricate finishes for a truly regal feel. Modern more your style? The options are boundless with finishing choices like black onyx and media variety like river rock stone, colored class or even stainless steel fire tubes, like seen in the Heat & Glo LUX. There is no doubt about it; the newest modern fireplaces look stunning, even when they are turned off.
Doubling the warmth.
A dividing wall between a living room, den or kitchen can be the perfect place for a see-through fireplace that gives warmth and ambience to both rooms. There’s even an indoor/outdoor see-through fireplace on the market called the Twilight, which is made by Heat & Glo. The Twilight lets you enjoy a fire both indoors and out on the patio at the same time.
With so many beautiful options and designs available, there has never been a better time to purchase new gas fireplace in your home. Need some more convincing?
