With the arrival of Fall and cooler temperatures, AT reader Jaime sent us a question about finding a stylish fireplace for her home.

“Is there a such thing as a good looking, modern electric fireplace? With the winter coming and no fireplace in our home, I think it could be cozy or could be really, really bad. Having a hard time finding non-ugly options…”

We agree – the selection of modern or contemporary portable fireplaces is lacking a bit in the style department. That being said, with some creativity, you can create the look you want. Here are two ideas – one is more DIY and one is more pricey. If you prefer either direction, there are more options within each but this is a start.

Idea #1: Create Your Own Modern Look This
Arched Contemporary gel fireplace is a good base and affordable. You can apply any paint color or material (mirror, tinted glass, bricks, wallpaper) to freshen up the look.

Idea #2: Buy A Fireplace With A Modern Look These units tend to be pricey but look neat and make a statement. The
PLAZA Fireplace by Seiger Design for Conmoto is free-standing and vent less. Although not sure how much heat this smaller unit would radiate?!

And when Spring and Summer roll around next year, you can consider revising your fireplace space to add more light reflection by placing a leaning mirror inside. Check out this look from domino.
