2024 is around the corner and it’s the perfect time to prepare your hearth for the upcoming year. Since the traditional hearth has undergone a modern transformation with the advent of electric fireplaces, a new era of fire trends is unfolding, redefining how Aussies experience warmth in their living spaces.
Whether you are planning to update an existing living room fireplace or add a new feature to your bedroom, join us as we delve into these electrifying fireplace trends for 2024.
1. Eco-conscious fires
When environmental consciousness meets interior design, eco-friendly fireplaces are born. These fireplaces will take center stage in 2024, with the widespread adoption of sustainable energy sources like e-NRG bioethanol. They not only reduce your carbon footprint, but also add an element of eco-luxury to an interior.
Take electric fireplaces, for example. They are more environmentally friendly than traditional wood fireplaces and don’t produce any harmful emissions. Bioethanol fireplaces are another eco-conscious option you can consider for your space.
2. Smart fire integration
Imagine adjusting your fireplace settings through a mobile app on your smartphone. Incorporating technology into fireplaces is a rising trend, allowing users to adjust the flame and even schedule heating times.
Smart electric fireplaces offer several other features like remote control operation, adjustable flame settings and integration with home automation systems. Looking ahead, the integration of advanced technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and voice-controlled assistants can also add an extra layer of convenience in the future.
3. Multi-sided fireplaces
Often known as see-through fireplaces, multi-sided fireplaces are perfect if you want to create a focal point in your living room. These fireplaces can visually connect different living spaces. Plus, you can enjoy them from multiple angles and even incorporate customizable features, such as adjustable flame patterns.
Take Lopi double-sided fireplaces, for instance. These fireplaces offer the convenience to simultaneously enjoy the mesmerising flames from two different rooms.
4. Customisation and personalisation
Gone are the days when electric fireplaces were all about one-size-fits-all. This particular trend emphasises customisation and personalisation, allowing you to create bespoke designs that complement your home décor.
From choosing the perfect fireplace frame to selecting innovative fire screen designs, customising your electric fireplace ensures that it becomes a statement piece and reflects your individuality.
5. Outdoor fireplaces
As outdoor living spaces are gaining popularity, outdoor fireplaces are getting high in demand. In response to this demand, fireplace manufacturers are also focussing heavily on weather-resistant materials.
These fireplaces are a great option to extend the usability of an outdoor area, allowing homeowners to enjoy the area even during colder months. You can integrate them into outdoor kitchens, seating areas and even poolside lounges.
6. Sleek and minimalistic fires
Sleek and minimalistic electric fireplace designs are already trending and may continue to gain more popularity in 2024. From wall-mounted options to freestanding units, these fireplace designs feature clean lines and minimalistic mantels. Plus, they usually incorporate glass, concrete and metal to achieve a more contemporary and appealing look.
