Modern home design focuses on smart and stylish fireplaces. The fire is contained in a beautiful structure, to give a decorative touch to the room. Aesthetics is the premise behind modern Fireplace Ideas. From small firebox in one corner, to huge rocky mantels lighting up the room, fireplaces come in varied designs.
In a modern home, a fireplace is an important part of the decor. It cannot just be an oddly designed structure, thrown carelessly into the scheme of the room. In a room with a vintage feel, a fireplace in a wooden design continues with the flavor of the olden times. In a modern room, the fireplace comes in different neat designs, depending on the general scheme of the interiors. For a basic room in a matte color scheme, a brickwork mantel can add a warm and lively touch. For a room with an ornate feel, a mantel with a marble finish and ornate design, gives a luxurious look. Woodwork on the outer surfaces of the fireplace, also creates a rich look. Many modern homes go for simple and elegant firebox, to give a sleek look to the room. Fireplaces are also designed with tile work on the borders of the mantel.
