Which Stunning Fireplace Design Best Suits Your Home?
Year on year, homeowners are increasingly choosing to spruce up their existing property instead of moving into somewhere new. As they roll up their sleeves and craft their house into their ideal home, they are getting creative utilising the space they have available. Stoves and wood burners are becoming an increasingly popular choice to incorporate into their designs.
Not only does their aesthetic beauty make them a desirable feature but their superb energy efficiency makes having a fireplace installed a no-brainer. A modern multi-fuel stove or wood burner can reach efficiencies of around 80% and does a far better job at keeping your room warm compared to the 30% of heat retained with an open fire.
Our advice in choosing the perfect fireplace for your home? Decide on the mood of the room, and let your personality come in. But keep in mind your personal style, house décor, and the right location. Whether you love fireplaces that are authentic and rustic or prefer a contemporary, modern look, there are a number of different styles that you can choose from.
The Classical Fireplace
Also known as the traditional chimney, this basic design brings a charming vibe to your living room. Typically, you can expect fireplace that has been designed in deep moulding, finished with intricate detailing. You can mix and match the surrounding housing to suit your home design. Marble, limestone, and wood are a popular choice. When positioning this fireplace in the middle of the room, you can place either the TV or a painting above for a comfortable feel.
The Modern Fireplace
The modern fireplace will give any room that added flair. Its sleek design compliments a contemporary house. With flexibility in shape, design, and location, and the use of a variety of fuel sources – wooden logs, gas, or electricity – this option can be adapted to suit the most unexpected of areas in your home.
The cabin fireplace is the ideal solution to give that ‘cabin in the mountain’ look and feel to any countryside house. This is a popular choice for home-owners looking to bring a sense of warmth and comfort into their home. Ideally placed in living rooms, cabin fireplaces make a charming addition; all you need now is some dim lighting and comfortable furniture for that picturesque winter cosiness.
Nothing quite makes a statement like having a fireplace in the middle of the room. Inject your bold personality into your home design with this impactful design. To transform your space, you can opt for a traditional brickwork fireplace or choose from a range of modern styles.
The Stove Fireplace
Two innovations in one – the stove fireplace is a no-brainer for those looking for a beautiful stove that also warms the house. Its innovative design gives you the authenticity of a traditional fire while being adaptable to suit all home designs.
