Modern style is one of the most popular trends these days, which is why modern fireplace surrounds are so popular.

One of the most current trends is modern style, which is why modern fireplace surrounds are so popular. Learn more about the key features of modern style and let us also introduce you to the impressing fireplace. Come to us and discover the possibilities of this new lifestyle.

The modern style

Although we naturally recognize when we enter a modern style home, it is worth summarizing the features of this trend. So, before we start introducing fireplace surrounds, let's summarize everything we need to know about modern style.

Modern style is a movement that is not inspired by any historical period or culture but is based on the Bauhaus style. The Bauhaus originated in Weimar in 1919 and was the first movement to establish a practical relationship between art and functionality.

The movement's representatives broke with the pointed arches of the Gothic, the light waves of the Rococo and the heavily over-decorated tendrils of the Baroque and moved in a clear, simple direction. Modern style is thus inspired by the Bauhaus and derives from the upheavals and profound changes in Western society.

Modernism is a lifestyle and not just an architectural movement. It argues that architecture, literature and philosophy are now outdated and in need of renewal and updating. The period between the two world wars was the perfect breeding ground for a new trend. Another factor in the emergence of the modern style was the industry's move away from traditional building materials towards glass, steel and concrete. The economic situation at the time was also a definite factor.

It is important not to confuse modernism with futurism or contemporary art. On the contrary, minimalism, Scandinavian design, industrial style and modern rusticism are all modernisms.

Characteristics of modern architecture

The modern style is characterized by simplicity and plainness, with geometric shapes and straight, simple lines. The modern style completely dispenses with ornamentation and unnecessary frills.

Straight and elegant lines predominate, complemented by interesting and sometimes eye-catching shapes. The surfaces reflect the light in most cases, so that an interior is characterized by a lot of light and simplicity combined with functionality. The modern interior style conveys a feeling of freedom, clarity and generosity. Simplicity, formal functionality and closeness to nature are also among the defining characteristics. One thing is certain: you won't find shelves full of clutter, furniture stacked on top of each other and heavy accessories in a modern flat. After this brief introduction, I would like to introduce you to our modern fireplace surround series.

Did you know?

It is important to clarify that you must make two important decisions when buying and installing a fireplace. A fireplace therefore consists of two parts: the fireplace inserts, i.e. the combustion chamber, and the fireplace lining. If it is a wood-burning fireplace, the fireplace insert is the space where the combustion takes place, in the case of an electric fireplace, it is the space where the flames are visible and the heat itself is generated. The fireplace surround is the element that determines the appearance of the firebox.

Of course, we offer a huge selection of inserts with an almost infinite number of possibilities.  There is hardly a need for which a solution cannot be found here. We know that choosing the right fireplace is a big decision. That's why we encourage you to contact us without hesitation.
