5 Fireplace Styles That Would Look Great in Your New Home

by Janna Chappell, EDGEhomes Designer

There are many benefits to adding a fireplace in your home. Our gas fireplaces are easy to maintain and operate; they provide energy savings, extra heating, and a cozy, cheerful place to gather with friends and family. Fireplaces also allow homeowners to showcase their style and create a unique focal point in their homes all year long, which for me, as a designer, is definitely my favorite part!

EDGEhomes offers several different fireplace styles and hundreds of options to personalize each one. I’ll highlight just a few of them to show the variety of styles that we offer, and point out some other interior selections that look great with each fireplace!

Hampton Fireplaces

We are so excited to announce our newest fireplace option called the Hampton fireplace. We selected this fireplace for our Parade Home in the Utah Valley Parade of Homes this year, and it was a big hit. This fireplace mantle is such a timeless and classic shape that frames the tile selection perfectly.  This mantle creates the perfect focal point and lets the fireplace do all the talking in the room.

Contemporary Fireplaces

Another new fireplace option that we now offer is the Contemporary fireplace.  This slim, sleek mantle is perfectly simple and works very well with more contemporary tile options and modern interior selections and furnishings.

Craftsman Fireplaces

We also offer another very popular and versatile fireplace; the Craftsman fireplace.

It’s a simple style with a more detailed top mantle than the Hampton or Contemporary fireplaces.  And, just like its name, it pairs perfectly with more craftsman and transitional interior finishes and furnishings.

Minimalist Fireplaces

Our most simple and clean fireplace option with a rectangular insert is called the Minimalist fireplace. It comes without a mantle or tile surround and is the perfect option for homebuyers that love the minimalist style.  It looks great with our more contemporary steel railing options and our Euro kitchen cabinets as well.

Bungalow Fireplaces

One of our favorite fireplace options is the Bungalow fireplace. It comes with a beautiful mantle that wraps around the sides of the fireplace and a V-Groove detailing on the front that adds so much character. The mantle is available in any of our stain or paint color options and is great for homebuyers who enjoy a more transitional look in their homes.
