The popularity of ethanol fireplaces has grown by leaps and bounds in the last decade, and as a result, we have been graced with numerous stunning décor ideas as professional home decorators begin to incorporate these fireplaces into the designs of their clients’ homes. Decor ideas for ethanol fireplaces range from the sleek and modern to traditional designs than incorporate natural elements.
If you are thinking about installing an ethanol fireplace in your own home or business, here are five stunning décor ideas, involving ethanol fireplaces, to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing!
- Make the most of a room’s corners.
Instead of opting for a traditional, built in fireplace, an ethanol fireplace can be placed in the corner of a room to create a striking focal point for the space. With such a wide range of differently sized ethanol fireplaces to choose from, it will not be difficult to find one that is proportionately scaled to the size of the corner and the room. If the fire feels to bare, it can easily be made shorter or be dressed up with a strategically placed wood logs.
- Use a fireplace with multiple burners to create a mesmerizing visual effect.
From a practical perspective, having an ethanol fireplace with multiple burners means that the fireplace will more effectively heat the room it is placed in. From an aesthetic perspective, the effect is simply hypnotic. It is not difficult to find ethanol fireplaces with two, three, or even four burners. To create associations with more traditional open fireplaces, stone or other natural materials can be used to create the mantle and the fireplace surround.
- Sometimes, simple is better.
Sometimes, simple is the way to go. Instead of going wide, why not go long? A simple, tall firebox can serve as a stunning backdrop for the flames. To create the appearance of sharper flames or to increase the flames’ reflection, black stone, black granite, or another similar material with a polished surface can be used to create this effect.
- It’s all about the glass, baby!
Incorporating glass panels into the design of an ethanol fireplace will instantly up the “wow!” factor, but it also serves a practical purpose. The glass forms a barrier that will protect the flame from drafts of wind. It also prevents small children and pets from getting too close to an open flame. Last, but not least, the glass reflects the appearance of the flames, which enhances their aesthetic appeal.
