Easy Contemporary Fireplaces
Everybody loves a cozy, warm contemporary fireplace and with winter quickly approaching, the glow of a fire is that much more alluring. But what if you live in a home where a fireplace just isn’t a possibility? Perhaps you live in a modern high rise or an apartment where it’s impossible to add a fire place. Or maybe you live in a house, but you don’t want to hassle with the work and expense of having a modern fireplace installed. If this sounds like you, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. There are some very innovative companies who are making our lives easier with electric and ethanol fireplaces that give you the look and warmth of a contemporary fireplace without having to go through the trouble of installation. These fireplaces come in loads of shapes, sizes and applications.
Take this very contemporary black glass fireplace for example. It’s electric which means you can just plug it right into the wall, and the flame looks surprisingly realistic. It also comes with a built-in space heater so it not only looks great, but is functional too! Plus it comes in several lengths from small space-savers to this extra long version.
If you don’t have room for a horizontal contemporary fireplace, then this vertical version is a really cool modern take! You can hang it right on the wall and it takes up very little space, but makes a big impact.
Are you still not willing to give up any of that valuable wall space for your modern fireplace? Then check out this 2-in-1 entertainment unit with the fireplace built right in. It even has the speakers built right in, so you won’t need to worry about installing them!
Have you ever said to yourself, “I just wish my fireplace could play music directly from my iPod”? Probably not, but it’s actually a pretty cool feature. This vertical freestanding fireplace has built in speakers and it connects directly to your MP3 player.
Contemporary electric fireplaces do look pretty realistic these days, but if you won’t settle for anything less than the real deal, then maybe these modern ethanol fireplaces are more your thing. Ethanol will give you an actual flame without the smoke, so you don’t need any sort of ventilation.
This wall-mounted stainless fireplace is super modern with a sleek, contemporary shape. The glass element also adds to its elegant feel.
Some ethanol fireplaces can even be used outdoors. You can roast marshmallows in your own back yard and you won’t come in smelling like smoke! This freestanding version makes a great centerpiece to any outdoor or indoor seating arrangement.
If you’re really tight on space or just don’t want to give up much of your precious real estate for a fireplace, then you can’t go wrong with this tabletop ethanol fireplace. It’s got a tiny footprint, but makes a big statement.
Whichever you choose, these contemporary pieces make it easy to add the warm glow of a modern fireplace to any space.
