Contemporary Floating Hearth: The Bespoke Fireplace You Will Love
When the fireplace was first introduced, it had one purpose and that is to provide heat during the cold winter days. It serves the same purpose until today, but with more added benefits.
Our great, great grandfathers created the fireplace because they wanted to have a cosy warm place where they can stay during the cold season. However, over the past generation, the fireplace evolved into more than just a heating equipment.
New designs of modern and contemporary fireplaces like what Modus Fireplaces are offering to provide warmth and cheer to all homes. Like the old days, fireplaces were made to be the focal point of every room, today it serves the same purpose. In fact, families still gather around this fascinating heating equipment to share warm.
These fireplaces boast more than just to provide heat but also style. And what more represents a great design than a floating hearth.
Understanding its roots
Hearths serve a functional purpose such as they protect flammable materials like carpets and wood floors from possible sparks when they were invented. But further safety measures were also created with the masonry chimney after the invention of direct-vent gas fireplaces.
In terms of pure use, the hearths of long ago became obsolete. However, its popularity became more known because of its ornamental appeal. As fireplaces become more decorative, so as the hearth’s role in giving that architectural statement.
Hearths of today are not just inspiring and delighting to see, but they also carry an architectural element that does not just copy the traditional designs of long ago.
