Some fireplace trends appear ageless, while others mirror broader home design fashions. Recent house design ideas have been significantly influenced by the cultural shift in home (and work) life.
What has not changed is the enchantment of fire, which has captivated humans since their earliest days. There are many alternatives for building a fireplace nowadays, from the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace to the sophistication of an electric fireplace. Whether you are remodeling an existing fireplace or installing one in an indoor or outdoor living room, here are some of the trendiest fireplace trends to inspire you.
Fireplace Trends #1 Minimalist, Clean, & Simple
In 2022, simplicity is a fashionable interior design style, and this tendency has extended to fireplace design. In place of complicated patterns and ornate features, homeowners are choosing fireplaces that fit into their surroundings. This approach emphasizes the beauty of the fireplace with the use of neutral, natural finishes. Charcoal, textured black, matte black, antique black, and antique steel are some of our popular finishes for fireplace doors.
Fireplace Trends: #2 Room-Defining
Open-concept houses have been a significant trend in home design for some time. However, as the culture of the house has evolved (school, job, etc.), an increasing number of homeowners desire a little more solitude without entirely sealing off the room. Fireplace walls are an excellent method to separate an area while keeping it open, warm, and comforting.
Fireplace Trends: #3 Make a Statement
Isn’t it amusing how two contrasting styles can both be fashionable? As frequently as we observe minimalist fireplace designs, we also continue to observe a trend of strong, dramatic fireplaces that make a statement and serve as the room’s center point. This style in fireplaces features industrial metals, daring designs, and distinctive sizes and forms.
Fireplace Trends: #4 TVs and Heat Management
In recent years, home entertainment has undergone significant transformations. The average size of home televisions has grown substantially, making placement in the living room challenge. The space-saving (and aesthetically pleasing) solution is to mount the television above the fireplace. The need for heat protection and noncombustible walls, surrounds, and shelves have increased, although this is an excellent solution.
Fireplace Trends: #5 Take it Outdoors
The outdoors is a wonderful method to increase our livable space, particularly when the space can be enjoyed for the bulk of the year. To increase the usability of the outdoor area, deck, and patio, many homeowners are installing outdoor fireplaces or fire pits/fire tables.
