If you’re looking for inspiration for a modern fireplace design, read on.

Unique Fireplace Trends

Whether it’s fashion or interior design, different trends often become a factor in evaluating aesthetic beauty related to design. And there are various trends that exist regarding fireplace design.

The vintage rustic stone look remains a popular trend for fireplaces. However, using materials such as emerald or marble is also becoming more popular.

Location-based trends are also garnering interest. One could decide to add a fireplace to a kitchen to boost the mood while preparing dinner. Having a fireplace by a hot tub is also a lovely way to promote a relaxing atmosphere.

Customize With Mantels And Hearths

The mantel and the hearth are the biggest visual appeals for a fireplace. They can be designed in several different ways depending on your preferences.

Among your options for the hearth include wood, pellet, and gas. Aside from visual appeal, these hearths are often designed to be vented outside the house, making them great eco-friendly heating solutions.

You’ll also want to have a good mantel design, as the mantel is what ties the fireplace to the room that surrounds it. Along with deciding the material for the mantel, you’ll want to decide what to put on it. Flowers, pictures, ceramics, etc., are popular choices for decorating your mantel space.


While it may not be top of mind, there are a variety of doors to choose from in fireplace design. In addition to their practical use, doors add a lovely touch to the visuals of a room and offer an opportunity to express your unique style.

You can also buy accessories and toolsets that have their own visual appeal. Better yet, our team is here to ensure these products’ colors and designs are consistent with the design of the hearth and mantel.
