What Houzz contributors are saying:
Go for gasIf you don’t fancy the hassle and mess of lighting logs, you might prefer an alternative fuel fireplace, such as gas. If you’re worried a gas fire won’t have the same aesthetic appeal as a traditional log fire, hunt around as there are some beautiful designs on the market. Gas fires are easy to use, as you can turn the flames on and off quickly and efficiently whenever you like. You also won’t have soot and smoke particles travelling up your chimney, and won’t have to clean ash out of the bottom on a regular basis.
Accentuate the modernThis living room emphasises the sleek side of modern rustic style, giving the look a clean, fresh spin. All the key elements are still here, including logs, animal hides and a natural stone floor, but in a neat and pared-back form to suit this contemporary home.
Fan the flamesMake winter nights at home more cosy and appealing with some living flames. From a roaring blaze to a hearth full of flickering candles, fire brings warmth and creates an inviting, cocooning atmosphere. Why would you want to go out?
Remember it’s OK to accessoriseA decluttered space does not have to look harsh or spare. Minimalists would not frown on a few rugs or throws and you could also sprinkle in the odd cushion, too. Soften up all those clean, sleek surfaces and add some contrasting texture, but remember to follow the presiding colour palette and keep these extras to a minimum, too!
Bring the outside in Make a feature of chopped wood for the fire by piling logs in an alcove with their sawn-off ends on display. This modern-rustic barn conversion continues the natural theme with a coffee table made from a chunky ash tree and a fur rug to soften the stone floor.
