When you close your eyes and imagine your luxury dream home, does your mind hear the crackle of a fire?
After all, what’s more luxurious than the element of fire perfectly placed inside a home?
As an experienced luxury home building company, Sam Vercher out of Bullard and Tyler, Texas, understands the value of a gorgeous fireplace in the right location.
When designing your luxury dream home, you’ll want to find a balance between what is trending and what will stay timeless. This is especially true with more permanent craftsman fixtures in your home’s design décor, such as a fireplace.
A fireplace offers so many things in a home: a functional heating unit, design piece, and often the center focal point of a room.
Especially in East Texas, a fireplace is something that can be enjoyed indoors and outdoors. Talk to your custom home builder and/or home contractor about what options might be right for your unique home design.
Here are some professional suggestions for luxury home fireplace options, as well as location ideas.
Fireplaces can do so many different things for the atmosphere of a room. Fireplaces and their accessories/fixtures can do everything from making a space feel rustic to luxurious and many levels in between. This is quite a powerful design feature for one room accessory! Of course, you’ll want to make sure you’re matching the correct aesthetics.
Another good reason to work directly with your professional luxury home builder on your dream home concept ideas is to ensure you get just the right look and feel for your home.
If you’re trending more on the side of elegance, the frameless fireplace might be what you’re looking for. You have the option of wood or gas. This minimalist design is available in multiple luxury styles ranging from stone to tile to marble. The versatility of this fireplace design makes it a great choice for a variety of rooms, from your entryway, home office, living room, or even bedroom.
Another benefit of the frameless, linear fireplace is its adaptability. You can have them automated, designed to be added to your home’s automation systems.
Picture coming home after a long day out in the East Texas rain, and with the touch of a button, you’re relaxing by a cozy fireplace.
You can also choose different ways to feature the fireplace—glass-sided in the center of the room, set into the wall, as a corner piece, etc.
What’s more luxurious than a simultaneously indoor/outdoor fireplace?
The indoor/outdoor fireplace design is functional, stylish, creative, and innovative. Available in both gas and wood designs, it allows you to make the most of your fireplace, whether you’re inside or outside.
The wonderful detail of this fireplace design is that it’s ideal for any season. And it’s great for entertaining. So, you and your guests can enjoy a beautiful summer night out under the stars next to a cozy fire on warm nights. And when the weather turns, during chilly, rainy weather, you can enjoy the same fire from the comfort of the indoors.
What could be cozier?
The indoor/outdoor fireplace is great for when you have guests because whether people are outside or inside, they can enjoy the special atmosphere and light only a fireplace brings to a gathering.
Looking for a more modern aesthetic? Why not go up?
If your luxury home design can accommodate a floor-to-ceiling fireplace design, then why not consider a taller fireplace? Vertical fireplace designs can look stunning in a large room with high ceilings and can easily become the design centerpiece.
If you’re concerned about the fireplace dividing the room too much, why not make it a see-through, floor-to-ceiling fireplace? By making it glass and transparent, you can keep the room feeling open while also featuring your large vertical fireplace.
The designs can range from glass to stone, slate, etc. Ask your luxury home designer how a vertical fireplace might be incorporated into your home’s design.
If you like vertical options, the single flue fireplace might also be for you.
A flue, or chimney pipe, carries the smoke out of the house and vents the home, a pretty important item when it comes to fireplaces. While being functional, a flue can also be incorporated as a design detail of your room and luxury fireplace.
Depending on the flue’s design, it can add various aesthetics to your room, from log cabin rustic to industrial modern with lots of design room in between.
Because of its ancient, elemental nature, fire in a room elevates the space’s dynamism immediately. It’s a central focal point and the perfect medium to design a luxury home.
