  • 125,904 gallons of gas consumed
  • 1,199,537 pounds of coal burned

Frameless Fireplaces

Indoor linear was one of the most popular fireplace designs in the last few years, and it continues to be among the hottest contemporary fireplace design trends in 2024. Once you’ve seen one of these frameless linear wood or gas fireplaces light up a room, it’s easy to understand why their clean, sharp edges are so trendy.

This fireplace style is often surrounded by marble, tile, or stone decoration. It can also be designed as a classic single-sided piece or a see-through tunnel. One of the key advantages of indoor linear fireplaces is that they can be integrated into a space without taking up too much room.

The Acucraft Signature Series includes frameless options with the choice to include glass media instead of wood or stone for an elegant and sophisticated look. The above photo shows a frameless fireplace set in a large stone slab wall. It’s increasingly popular to see linear fireplaces built flush with the wall. These fireplaces don’t have a mantel, creating a seamless look.

Traditional Fireplaces With A Modern Look

Gas fireplace trends have been the center of modern interior design for a long time, but 2024 could be the year that gas fireplaces find a more traditional look. Traditional fireplace styles are most popular for rustic cabins and hotels with a quiet, comfortable feeling.

Wood-burning fireplaces are often used to complete the relaxing atmosphere, but when it comes to wood vs gas fireplaces, there are benefits to either side. The quick start and additional safety features are reasons some people prefer the gas fireplace. With the custom stone surrounds and tall flames, you can still get the rustic look and feel of a traditional wood-burning fireplace.

Gas fireplace looks can be some of the most unique as the large hearth and flue of wood-burning classic fireplaces are not entirely necessary. You can let your wildest interior fireplace ideas come to life with the combination of traditional and modern luxury fireplace designs found in these gas fireplaces. For an inside look at the range of possibilities, check out these 15 inspirational designs for a living room fireplace and Acucraft’s Timeless Gas Fireplaces collection.

Big Flames With A Gas Fireplace

Embrace the grandeur of towering flames with our gas fireplaces, a symphony of linear elegance and expansive views. Our designs set a new standard in the market, boasting the tallest flames that rise in majestic harmony. These fireplaces are not just design elements; they are modern architectural statements designed to captivate and mesmerize, ensuring that your space is transformed into a spectacle of luxury and awe-inspiring beauty.

Tall flames make a dramatic statement, especially when paired with open gas fireplaces or gas fireplaces without safety glass. While interior fireplace designs like this may not be practical for every household or commercial space, when they work, they look amazing. Take the photo above, for instance. The restaurant’s open fireplace, with its tall, dancing flames, not only casts a warm and inviting glow but also adds a touch of sophistication, making the overall ambiance effortlessly fun and memorable for patrons.

Outdoor Fireplaces, Pits, And Burners

While most people think of campfires when it comes to outdoor fire elements, outdoor fireplaces are becoming a hot trending fireplace idea. They elevate the outdoor experience when incorporated into an already cozy outdoor seating area, whether on a business patio or your porch in the backyard. Custom fire pits and burners can also add elegance to your outdoor area, inviting your family and guests to stay outside longer and enjoy the fresh air around a luxurious fire.

For homes with high ceilings, a huge chimney overlaid with natural stone offers a wonderfully rustic look. These bold fireplaces can impress guests in commercial spaces like hotels, museums, and event spaces. They can also serve as a breathtaking focal point in larger homes.

Fireplaces For More Than One Space

Versatility is one of the top fireplace trends right now, and two-sided fireplaces are on the rise because they can be used in more than one room. Whether you like beautiful stonework with a rustic mantel or you want the viewing area to be flush with a tile or metal veneer, these fireplaces can fit any design style in either room.

A beautiful summer night outside on the deck isn’t complete without a fire, and neither is a cozy winter evening on the couch. Indoor/outdoor gas fireplaces can be a great way to keep your evening by the fire going when the night turns cold. Our indoor/outdoor wood fireplaces also have the option to convert the interior side between open and sealed fires.

This one-of-a-kind double-sided fireplace looks like a window on fire. And, it’s only one example of the beauty and ambiance that dual-sided fireplaces can add to any space – commercial or residential. With double the pleasure gained from one fireplace, it’s no wonder these have been one of the top trending fireplaces in this past year.

Statement Mantels

The actual fireplace is only a part of statement fireplaces. The fireplace’s mantel can help make your fireplace stand out even more. Before thinking about putting up decorations, consider the dimensions of the fireplace and the style of the fireplace and mantel. Fireplace surrounds and mantels can range from being made of wood or stone, and the mantel’s dimensions can also vary. Make sure when you put up decorations or mount a TV above the fireplace that they are safely placed according to the fireplace manufacturer’s recommendation.

This exquisite detail seamlessly blends the allure of old-world craftsmanship with contemporary sophistication.

Fireplaces With Integrated Seating

Integrated seating with a fireplace is emerging as a chic fireplace trend. This design element seamlessly blends function and style, transforming the fireplace into an interactive centerpiece. Whether a plush couch echoes the fireplace’s elegance or a circle of benches embraces the dancing flames, each seating arrangement is a testament to thoughtful, purpose-driven design.
