Fireplace Designs That Are Anything But Boring


In the not-too-distant past, most gas fireplaces looked basically the same. The flames burned around faux logs in a square firebox positioned on a beefy hearthstone, surrounded by brick or fieldstone. Walk into any Heat & Glo dealer today and one of the first things you’ll notice is those days are long gone!


As home design trends have evolved, so too have fireplace designs. One-style-fits-all, standard square fireplaces are no longer the prevailing option, or even the most popular. Progressive fireplace designers and manufacturers like Heat & Glo have kept steady pace with home design trends, so there’s a gas fireplace shape and style for virtually every home application, no matter how unique your space. Here are five fireplace ideas that beautifully complement the latest home design trends.


#1 Your Own Setting Sun
Fireplaces have come full circle – quite literally. The Heat & Glo Solaris is a dramatic see-through circular fireplace that can be installed on a 2×6 wall between two rooms.



#2 Linear Love
The top-trending “out-of-the-box” shape for fireplaces today is linear – and people who love modern design can’t get enough of them.



#3 Arched Elegance
Archways are loved by interior designers for adding architectural interest to rooms, and the Heat & Glo Crescent and Cerona gas fireplaces feature shapely arches that have a similar calming effect.

#4 Off the Wall
Also popular are shapely and elegant fireplaces that move the fire off the wall and place it center-stage in the room. They are undeniable focal points that also serve to divide and warm two rooms.

Only 7 inches deep, the REVO gas fireplace can go almost anywhere in your home with flexible installation options. Hang it on the wall, or recess it into the wall. Make your own kind of square.
