We’re all hoping that the new year has lots of positive change in store for us, but when it comes to your home, the future is in your hands. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite fireplace trends for 2021 to help you start the new year off right.
There really is no substitute for the warm ambiance that a crackling wood-burning fireplace provides, which is why they still hold a place on our list of fireplace trends for 2021. Models like the High Country 7000™ bring the traditional wood-burning style into the future with their elegantly modern design. If you want to give this seamless glass-doored fireplace the setting it deserves, then forget the rustic mantle and consider using more modern materials like marble or granite. The sleek finish of the natural stone will perfectly accent this clean-burning wood fireplace’s design.
Even though gas fireplaces aren’t going out of style any time soon, there are still a few design trends to watch out for in 2021. In years prior, homeowners were mounting their flat-screen TVs above their fireplaces because of how well the two accented each other, but we’re slowly seeing that trend change. People are looking to create screen-free spaces more and more these days, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see gas fireplaces become the focal point of many Canadians’ relaxation spaces. With each passing year, the technology in gas fireplaces improves, and so do their designs. See-through gas fireplaces like the Napoleon Vector Series™ are a definite conversation starter, and they give your home the open concept feel you’ve always wanted, without having to remove any walls.
With the advancements made in gas fireplace technology and the timeless ambiance of wood-burning fireplaces, electric fireplaces fell out of the spotlight for a bit. We predict that 2021 will be the year electric fireplaces find their way back on to the list of home design trends. Electric fireplaces can add a uniquely modern feel to any room in your home because they don’t require ventilation or a gas hook up. These days many electric fireplaces, like the Allure™ 32, give you the ability to change the flame colour to suit your décor or even your mood. You can choose between the standard flame, vibrant orange, soothing blue, calming purple, or even a combination of colours.
