Space Saver: Corner Fireplace

Jayca Pike 17/11/2014

We love a well-placed wood fireplace, from its decorated mantle to its fiery glow.

But does everyone really have room for one? Could a corner fireplace keep you just as cozy?


Bulky and laborious, a real wood fireplace may look like a fantasy, but it requires substantial investments in time, money, and square footage.

By utilizing of a wasted corner, corner fireplaces make a big impact with a small footprint.

A nestled corner fireplace in a corner not only warms the whole space with ease, but it augments the floor plan, too. Here are several options for tucking one of these luxurious beauties into your living or bedroom.


Idea One for a Corner Fireplace

Our favorite Idea? Storage.

Add personality to your room by aligning executive bookshelves on either side. In this living room, the corner fireplace tucks between two imposing bookcases, adding light (both figuratively and literally) to a space that could easily be overwhelmed by clutter or height. The white upholstered sofa set and airy coffee table keep things gracious and graceful with their breezy arched lines.

Even Better Idea: Create an illusion of more cohesive design by “extending” your mantel into the shelves — keeping the shelves and mantel at the same height and roughly the same wood type and color works to draw the eye around the room.
