Fireplace – A Little Slice of Heaven

In the winter, having a fireplace is a little slice of heaven. When the sun sets behind the horizon, it invites you to grab a cozy throw, a book and a mug of something warm. The only problem with having a fireplace is that it can take over your room’s design. That is, if you let it. Fortunately, modern and minimalist fireplaces are delivering design-savvy homeowners and renters an alternative to the stodgy hearths of yesteryear.

If you’re looking for a fireplace that will meld with your design vision, rest easy. There are a wide range of indoor varieties. You might want something larger-than-life that completely defines your living space. Or you might want something that will play nicely with the other elements in the room. If the latter speaks to you, read on. We’ve lined up 25 gorgeous minimalist fireplaces that will keep you warm all winter long.

White minimalist fireplaces

Unobstructed sides are a major trend in minimalist fireplaces – and for good reason. They help the design feel light and give you better access to your cozy fire

Dark minimalist fireplaces

Adding a fireplace to an accent wall doesn’t have to mean losing the impact of the accent.

Glass-enclosed minimalist fireplaces

Glass on either side of the fireplace connects the living and dining spaces.

Your fireplace functions as the heart of your home. What’s a cozy, fall or winter day without crackling logs and a warm blanket? But if your chimney can’t handle the heat, there are still plenty of ways to decorate a non-working fireplace. These decor ideas dress up the mantle and hearth without relying on fire, so the centerpiece of your living room can always look its best year-round.

A fireplace nestled among your dresser drawers adds warmth without limiting your storage options.

If you like a streamlined aesthetic in the bedroom so your mind can drift off to sleep undistracted, minimalist fireplaces are for you.

Alternately, minimalist fireplaces also work well in darker, more moody spaces where you don’t want to disrupt the feel with too much light or warmth

In the midst of a chilly winter, these unique fireplace ideas might help keep you warm.
