Despite the versatility of the color, a white fireplace will become an atypical prototype for a modern “hearth” in your space.
Features and Benefits
A distinctive feature of a white fireplace will be the fact that it is suitable for creating any interior, of course, you should pay attention and select its model to match the style of your home or living room

The most popular model of fireplaces is the electric version of the hearth, which is safe and inexpensive to maintain, unlike the "wood-burning" model.
A white electric fireplace is able to complement any interior, be it a classic living room with flowing shapes, fashionable Provence and its natural materials, or modernist style with strict shapes or minimalism.
The advantages of an electric white fireplace are obvious:
The safety of the structure allows you to keep it in an apartment or house where there are children or animals
The relative ease of installation does not require global changes in the design of your home, and the electric version of the fireplace is available for installation in an apartment building, unlike open-format fireplaces

The floor-standing fireplace is an improved and easier-to-install version of an electric fireplace, which is not large in size and allows you to easily install them in an apartment. Electric floor-standing fireplaces are sleek in design and easy to install - place a fireplace anywhere in the room and provide it with electricity.
In addition, white floor fireplaces are inexpensive in terms of cost and further maintenance.
The wall-mounted fireplace will be an excellent alternative to the floor-standing one, as it has a simple structure and is hung on the wall. The main thing is to provide such an accessory with electricity, and you can enjoy watching an attractive flame.
A wall-mounted fireplace can significantly transform the interior, add coziness and warmth to it, since the electric element in such a model works at 100%.
In addition, all versions of electric fireplaces can easily serve as heaters for you and your home, you can regulate heat production and its intensity in them.
An open fireplace with a real live flame is a "home" for a private home, the installation of which requires a lot of effort and expense.
The advantage of an open fireplace is that it gives the feeling of warmth and the aroma of a real fire, but such a fireplace requires a significant investment of time to melt it and maintain the required temperature.
An alternative to an open fireplace will be a biofireplace, which is reliably protected by heat-resistant tempered glass and a real flame lives inside it, which is created by supplying gas to the firebox.The bio-fireplace is safe for your health and home, since its discharge is not toxic and it is simply impossible to get a flame on a carpet or other interior items.
Today, like several tens and even hundreds of years ago, the fireplace symbolizes the high status of the homeowner, his superior position in society and wealth.
A marble fireplace will once again confirm your high level of wealth and excellent taste, since this type of "hearth" is chosen by people who are practical and prefer aesthetics.
It is no secret that in modern times the fireplace serves as a decoration rather than a real heating device, nevertheless, the level of popularity of this "device" does not nearly drop.
Marble is a material of natural origin, noble, natural, therefore it is often used as a facing material for a fireplace.
A beautiful and noble marble fireplace will allow you to accumulate the heat generated by the fireplace itself, therefore it will be an ideal choice for people who prefer the functionality of the "hearth" on a par with its appearance.
Facing a fireplace with marble allows you to create real works of art - fireplaces that are unique in their design for the home. The shade of marble may vary, but white remains the most sought-after and noble color.
Brick fireplaces are more budgetary in cost, but they look just as noble and dignified, and functional - they keep the heat from the stove.
Unfinished brick in the facing of the fireplace looks great in the interior of a modern format or "classic", while the color of the material itself is not important, its masonry is much more important. A white brick fireplace looks especially neat and allows you to create an interior that is unobtrusive, measured and as comfortable as possible.
Another popular material for facing a fireplace is tile - an inexpensive and affordable material that goes well with other modern interior decoration tools. The tile has good resistance to high temperatures, does not require special maintenance and is easy to install, unlike, for example, marble.
It is possible to create a fireplace cladding from drywall or any other artificial material, it is important that it is heat-resistant and safe when heated, and then it is only worth paying attention to its appearance and the attractiveness that it can create.
Decorative fireplace for home or apartment
If it is impossible to purchase or install a real fireplace, most people take a cunning step - they create a decorative fireplace at home and enjoy the visual warmth and comfort that the "hearth" gives them.
The advantages of an "artificial" fireplace will be its low cost, safety, the ability to install wherever you want. The only thing that should be taken care of in this case is to purchase an analogue of a real fireplace and how to add it to the interior so that it turns out laconic and cozy.
One of the most popular types of decorative fireplace is a device made of polyurethane or drywall. It is easy to buy such a fireplace in specialized stores or "interior" departments, where various useful and decorative gizmos are sold. You can create a drywall fireplace yourself, armed with material and your own ingenuity.
Conventionally, drywall fireplaces are divided into three categories: exclusively decorative versions - not functional and the simplest ones, which allow you to decorate the interior and only; conditional - that is, such structures inside which you can install an electric fireplace or an image or any other element with an image (possibly "live") of a flame; real fireplaces are models when the same biofireplace or its electric version can be placed inside a drywall structure.
Let's go back to decorative plasterboard fireplaces; the idea of creating a "hearth" in the house should be treated with seriousness and care, since it is worth starting work on the fireplace with the development of a sketch - the external design of the future artificial stove. After depicting the fireplace on a sheet, place the structure on the wall - the base, the firebox, the counters, the decorations of the artificial fireplace and its general design. The base of even a decorative fireplace is like the foundation of a future home; even if the fireplace is not real, it is necessary to approach the development and creation of its foundation thoroughly.
The simplest and most affordable, practically inexpensive version of a decorative fireplace is a cardboard one. To create a fireplace made of cardboard for a home or small apartment, you should find a large box, for example, from under the TV. From one large box, you will need to make the base of the future fireplace, having previously depicted the structure on paper.
Having cut out the fireplace and creating its cardboard version, you can start decorating it: dark and light, red paint, remnants of laminate, cardboard, tiles, wallpaper and other materials for decorating the final structure will do. Installing a cardboard fireplace is simple: fix it with double-sided tape, for example, so that it does not fall and violate the concept of your interior.
A white fireplace looks good in spacious rooms and even small living rooms, so it is especially easy to combine a fireplace with other interior items.
The most popular version of the combination of a fireplace and a TV is to place them on the same wall: above is a TV, below is a fireplace.
An alternative to this approach would be to position the TV on a wall perpendicular to the one on which the white fireplace is installed.
A sofa or soft armchairs are traditionally installed opposite the fireplace in order to fully enjoy the cozy home environment.
A very unusual modern way of positioning the biofireplace is its location in the center of the room: a minimalist fireplace seems to "hang" in the air in the middle of the living room or bedroom, creating a mysterious and incredibly attractive atmosphere.
