Wall-Mounted Gas Fire Place Design Ideas

Wall-mounted fireplaces offer a new option to traditional fireplaces. Instead of the soot-covered hearth, you can have a fireplace that is clean, smoke-free and tucked into the wall. This wall-mounted design is especially helpful if you have a small area to work with, because it saves floor space. Since you can place this fireplace in various locations within the wall, you can have more creative flexibility when designing the space.


Decide what the ideal location is for your fireplace according to your needs and design desires. If you have children or pets, it is advised to mount the gas-mounted fireplace above their reach, such as at eye-level. Eye-level mounting is a good height for picture frames and would work well with a fireplace, because it usually has an exterior frame, which makes it look as though it "frames the fire." If you wish to portray the look of a traditional fireplace, install the wall-mounted fireplace at or near floor level.


Consider the decor of your room when selecting the style of your fireplace. If your room has a traditional, modern, or rustic look, you can find many design options for wall-mounted gas fireplaces, since these are the most popular styles. The outside frame of this type of fireplace is usually available in stainless steel, black stainless steel, copper, wood and stone.

Size and Shape

Be certain that you are purchasing the correct size and shape for the location that you are planning. It can be difficult to visualise how the fireplace may affect the look of the room, so try cutting out a shape out of craft paper or cardboard that matches the size of your desired fireplace. Tape it to the wall and stand back to see how it fits the space.

Built-in Accents

Since you will be building into the wall for your wall-mounted fireplace, consider creating built-in shelving or alcoves to display items near it.
