The Hearth of the Home: Fireplace Design in Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home

With the arrival of the holiday season, the appeal of a warm and glowing fireplace grows stronger, even here in sunny San Diego. If you’re planning to include a fireplace design in your new home or whole home remodel, here are some examples for inspiration.

Glowed Up Engineering
This cozy family room unified with a welcoming kitchen was designed in a whole home remodel for an active young family. The husband, a talented engineer, wanted a sound bar inside the mantle. For this ingenious custom design, the mantle hinges up and down with integrated magnets, elegantly concealing the controls within.

Warmth Inside and Outside
A fire pit in the outdoor living area and a massive fireplace in the grand room echo each other in this stunning mountain view estate. (The home also has a fireplace in the beautiful master bathroom!) To emphasise indoor/outdoor living and expand your home, especially during the holidays, think about warming elements for both your interior and exterior living spaces.

An Artistic Angle
In this modern coastal home, the orientation and flow of the space were reconfigured to place an emphasis on aligning the home with its beach side location. The existing fireplace was replaced to push the glass of the windows further to the edge and expand panoramic views. The striking corner design underlines the modern attitude of the home.  

A thoughtful fireplace design brings a sense of warm gathering and comfort to your whole home remodel or new home design with the help of a unified team of architects, designers and construction professionals. In any season, the materials, scale, and style of the details of your house make it feel like home.
