Remember when stoves and fireplace inserts came in one color…black?
Then came variations on black:
- Black with gold accents.
- Black with brass accents.
- Black with nickel accents.
While the traditional black is still the most popular look in free-standing gas stoves and fireplace inserts, we’re seeing huge shifts in stove faces and finishes. Here are some design trends to look forward to in 2013:
The sleek shadowbox face makes a statement with its streamlined, clean look.
On a gas fireplace, the shadowbox looks like a picture frame. The “frame” surrounds all four sides of the fireplace, creating a “shadow” effect around the firebox.
On a fireplace insert, the shadowbox serves as a trim piece, giving the insert a finished look.
Mix-and-match faces and finishes will continue be a trend in 2013. Many gas fireplaces and inserts offer multiple face options in a choice of textured finishes.
Popular finishes you’ll be seeing in 2013:
- Carbon patina (black tone, hand-rubbed at the factory)
- Black satin
- Bronze patina (Pictured below : Artisan face with hand-rubbed bronze patina finish)
Brushed nickel (pictured below)
Driftwood fire art is an excellent middle-of-the-road option that’s increasing in popularity every year.
