A fireplace is a wonderful element to bring to a space. It adds character, warmth, and style to any room in the home. Fireplaces come in all shapes and sizes but I’ve been seeing a lot of modern fireplaces in particular lately and I love the look. The clean, streamlined shape of a modern fireplace is chic and timeless.
There are a lot of ways to personalize a modern fireplace. You can customize it with tile, stone, color, or even change the shape. A marble surround, for example, will bring a glamorous touch to the fireplace while stacked stone will give it a more masculine appeal. You can even create contrast by doing something more dramatic like a black fireplace on white walls.
Here are 10 stylish examples of modern fireplaces to give you some ideas and inspiration.
