You can have warmth and movement to a home from an open fireplace, you can find some ideas for a contemporary fireplace surround ideas design below.
The inset is designed for contemporary interiors. This type is simply a fire opening set in the wall with fire-basket or gas-fueled fire bed or pebbles, rocks, synthetic log, or ceramic shapes. You need to add a projecting hearth on the floor below and integrated to the inset fires for safety purpose, but the one that is protected by a glass or metal mesh screen at the front has already the needed protection.
The design of an inset fire that is built into the chimney breast so it fits flush to the wall and occupies no floor space looks very interesting. This ultimate minimalist fireplace is a focal point that is not intrusive. You can create it with black metal contrasted by matte white pebbles in many sizes on the fire bed. The ceramic material of the pebbles can withstand the heat, high temperature also not discolor heat.
You can also adapt the design in some other way; a ‘black box’ inset fire built into the wall with metallic fire-proof Japanese paper cover. When the electric fire is not lit, thanks to the design that makes the walls to simmer.
A customized and magnificent copper hood above the fireplace that forms the central feature of the interior could be a nice idea for an industrial edge to a contemporary interior. Or you can use rugged boulder that has the lintel forms over a fireplace to have a remnant of the previous house look. You can build it with rough shewn stone that you can get from a quarry or a stonemason.
You can mount the television above the fireplace with a fan-assisted flue to get rid of the need for a conventional chimney to overcome the space issue. You can add a track-mounted screen or painting to slide across to conceal both when not in use; it can create a clean and uncluttered space.
