Modern Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Jasmine Herrington.
Modern fireplaces not just about heating the house, they are also about interior design. They are still functional and economical, but their aesthetic value has increased so much so that they can often be classified as art pieces. There are far more styles to choose from than there ever were before, and anyone, can find the perfect gas fireplace for any home, be it large or small, urban or rural, and regardless of their particular sense of taste. In the past stone fireplace surrounds were more for protecting the house from the flames and storing ambient heat, even if they were beautifully crafted, but the most contemporary fireplaces can provide heat while also contributing to any interior design schematic. So much so, in fact, that they are often the primary fixtures in a room, and set a certain tone for the interior design schematic altogether.
You can find these very useful accessories in fireplace specialty stores or even some hardware stores and big box home centers as well. A search done on your favorite search engine will provide information on where you can purchase them as well. You can even buy them online but keep in mind that you will pay shipping and handling charges as well.
A ventless firebox insert is bonded to the internal side of the body while the external surface is made of genuine leather. The leather color can be customized to your specification. What makes this design truly striking is the elegant glass screen which enhances the visual impact created by the adorable and eye-catching flames.
In designing contemporary fireplaces, the project commences with a basic design concept. Then a simple measured image is drawn up, which then is transformed into a life-size representation that permits a more detailed look at the moldings and the carving details so that more minute dimensions can be determined. After all of this information is ascertained, the details are sent to a stone mill, and the materials are ordered (10-ton blocks are commonly ordered as a starter piece, but each project will require something different).
