YYC Modern Fireplace Design
This Sundance home, built in the 90’s, was in desperate need of a fireplace renovation! The new fireplace we designed included a new firebox, bump out face, tile, and quartz L-shaped floating hearth.
The firebox we selected was by Marquis Fireplaces by Kingsmen. It included a stainless steel frame surround, decorative white ember glass, and a matte liner. The firebox, supplied by Classic Fireplaces in Calgary, AB, instantly updated this space by providing a modern clean rectangular viewing area with a stainless steel frame.
The fireplace is cladded in a beautiful porcelain 24″x 24″ tile named Concrete CA7497 supplied by Icon Stone & Tile. The large format tile kept the design visually ‘uncluttered’ and modern in character. We installed this tile with tight grout lines so that the grid lines appeared more sleek.
The hearth design goal was to be both airy and functional. We decided to do a floating hearth at bench height that was also deep enough to act as additional seating if required in the family room. The hearth is entirely wrapped in Ceasarstone 2141 Blizzard quartz. We designed it with a waterfall edge detail on the left hand side to help provide an asymmetrical feel to the design and balance off the hearth.
This fireplace detail is simple, modern, and clean, however it a made a dramatic difference and immediate improvement to this client’s family room.
