34 Corner Fireplace Ideas – Burn It With Style

By: Caroline Warnock |

Fireplaces are amazing – whether you’re looking for a romantic evening with your partner, planning to tell an exciting story to your grandkids, snuggling up with your pet, or enjoying hot cocoa with a book, everything is made more fun with cracking wood in the fireplace.

However, not all spaces are large enough to accommodate a fireplace. If you think you’re rather tight on space and cannot get a fireplace, consider a corner fireplace.

A corner fireplace can be tucked into just about any corner you have free. Let’s look at some hot (figuratively and literally) corner fireplace ideas.

A Concrete Fireplace

And raw and rough as it might look, a concrete fireplace gives a very industrial aura. Plus, when the walls aren’t painted, you don’t have to worry about the wall paint getting black. Keep the décor minimum with a couple of comfy seating cubes. 

Nothing fancy schmancy here. An ideal place to enjoy the fire and sip on your whiskey, getting lost in your thoughts. Chopped up wood is piled on the side so the fire stays alive for long.

This fireplace is quite like the concrete one except this one is painted and looks beautiful enough for your living room. Draw your chairs nearer as the fireplace begins to glow and enjoy the cold winter nights with warmth in a traditional way.

Invite some friends over and have a snack night with a couple of marshmallows on the stick. It might not be camp night but you can certainly get the enjoyment of a camp when you have a fireplace at your home.

All White – Different Shades

The warm yellow glow of your fireplace is bright enough to brighten up the entire room. When the fire is burning, you don’t really need anything else to provide an accent to the room. An all-white room will glow up with the warmth of the fireplace.

Check out the white walls, white couch, white flooring, white window blinds, white ceiling, and white stonework of the fireplace. Everything is white except that one wooden bowl placed strategically above the fireplace. Without a fireplace, you’d need a bright colored accent piece. But with the fireplace, all white is all good.

Get a Hunter’s Look

If you’re a trophy hunter and like to decorate your living room with animal trophies, your fireplace can be the perfect place for that. A fireplace made from the natural stone will give your room a real huntsman look.

Go with earthy shades – that’s how the traditional homes looked like. Some couches, reclining chairs, an old bench to keep the wood chunks, and a soft rug. That’s the kind of place where you’d want to sit down and tell your grandkids the stories of the ‘Nam war. 

The checked curtains on the large window add to the conventional look of the room.

Get a Portrait Style Fireplace

This elegant fireplace is built like a portrait and is built with red stone. It looks great with the cream walls behind it. The brown couch goes well with the theme of the room.

The lamp has a metallic finish and adds a contemporary touch to the room. The coffee table in the middle has a glass top, ideal for placing magazines and newspapers. It’s a modern looking living room that’s not too large but still has ample space for a corner fireplace. 

Elegant Thin Veneer Stone Corner Fireplace

The sooty grey veneer stone masonry looks grand on the fireplace. The fireplace door has the same color as the stone – just a shade darker. It gives a stylish and rustic look to your living room. The stacked rock formation looks magnificent and attention-grabbing. Natural stone always looks beautiful and breathtaking. 

The mantelpiece can hold a number of items such as family trophies or photo frames. It can also accommodate art pieces. Brass pots are looking good and are continuing the rustic theme with a charm. It’s ideal for mid-sized rooms. The benchtop in front of the fireplace can be used to hold wood chunks.

The Sooty Old Brick Look

New fireplaces always look fresh. But we all know that once we’ve used the fireplace a couple of times, there will be soot all over it. And that’s what makes the fireplace more beautiful. Just like an old and completely read book looks better than a new book with unruffled pages, an old fireplace has its own charm.

The bricks have turned greyish black from the fire and soot. The mantelpiece holds an old candle lamp that gives the place a vibe of an old house. Keep an old teapot on the side and make sure the room has exposed beams – and you’ll travel back to olden times.

Get a Chinese Temple Look

If you’re enchanted by Chinese temples and old Chinese culture, this fireplace idea might be right for you. The walls of the room are red and the temple shape is white.

According to Feng Shui, Red is an energetic color. It is rich, celebratory, hot, and passionate – quite like the fire that’s burning in the fireplace. It’s also the color of happiness and luck.

According to Feng Shui, white is the color of heaven, which is why the temple on the fireplace is white. White is said to be the most powerful color and is symbolic of purity and cleanliness. If you want your own corner of Chinese wisdom in your home, the Chinese temple fireplace can be good for you.

The Treasure Hunt Fireplace

This room has wall embellishments, large photo frames, China pots, mantelpiece art pieces, small sculptures, a chandelier, and what not. And yet, none of it looks overpowering. It looks like a treasure hunt room. There’s so much you can explore. 

The fireplace made of bricks has a metallic opening. It’s a beautiful and traditional old house that speaks volumes about the richness of people living here. The room is decorated with antique pieces and the living room is perfect for formal tea parties. The room offers a lot to discuss over a cup of tea.

Modern and Minimalist Fireplace

The stark opposite of the previous fireplace, this one is modern and minimalistic. The electric fireplace is ideal for sitting around and enjoying with your family. This electric fireplace isn’t just good for the environment but also it doesn’t produce any smoke or soot. 

And if you think it won’t be exciting, you’re wrong. The electric fireplace produces fire crackling sounds that are soothing, just like a real fireplace. So the room looks amazing, and there’s no smoke or ashes to disturb you. It’s the ideal way to enjoy a fire during the winter season.

Large Contemporary Corner Fireplace

Corner fireplaces don’t necessarily have to be in limited space. They look beautiful and so even if you have ample space in your living room, you can still get a corner fireplace to make it warm and toasty. This room is set in a large and open concept that is governed by modern and contemporary styles. 

The wooden flooring has a medium tone that plays well along beige walls. The stone fireplace is set in ideal settings with a wall mounted TV on the side. If you want Netflix and chill, this is the perfect place for it.

A Little Touch of Caramel

We all love caramel. Well, at least I do. And as much as I love the flavor, I love its color as well. The midcentury modern white flooring looks great with the caramel tone of the living room. The corner is adorned with an electric fireplace that has a contemporary modern art piece on the wall above it. 

The wooden stool next to the comfy office chair is the perfect place for a bottle of wine and a glass next to it. Whether you want to use this room like your living room or home office, the place looks enigmatic and beautiful for sure.

The Maharaja Fireplace

This corner fireplace looks like an Indian royal palace. The entire décor of the room is done in accordance with the maharaja theme. If you want to feel like an Indian prince (or princess), this fireplace is a good idea. 

Adorning the mantelpiece are elephant sculptures – a majestic animal native to India. The sculpture on the coffee table along with its bent legs add to the Indian theme. The chairs are also carved beautifully and add a luxurious look to the place. This living room seems to come directly from an Indian fairy tale of palaces and temples.

If embedding a fireplace into the wall is too much of a hassle for you, try buying a classic metal fireplace that can simply be placed in the corner. The corner has enough space to house the fireplace along with some wood chunks to keep the fire going.

While it might not look at stylish as a wall embedded fireplace, it does make things easier. No fuss, no working with bricks and concrete – just buy a readymade fireplace and keep it there in the corner. Besides, it’s black in color so the soot won’t show up very quickly.

A Cabin in the Woods Fireplace

If your heart aches for some adventure but you can’t have any, build an adventurous space in your living room. Check out this look that says isolated cabin in the woods. It’s exciting but also, a bit spooky during nighttime. Exposed wooden beams, wooden flooring and wooden walls – this is just the perfect place for a wintery holiday.

The fireplace is made of stone and it looks good with the wooden surroundings. This royal look of this place deserves only antique sculptures and there’s one placed on the table. The open journal and ink pen on top looks like the writer left it like that while writing his memoirs.

Small Room Corner Fireplace

Did we see you sigh while looking at these images, thinking you cannot have a fireplace because your house is too small? Well, think again. Size is no restriction for a fireplace. Check out this room. A small room that’s barely enough to house a decent chair.

Get a metal fireplace and install it in your small room. Even if you can fit just a couple of chairs in this room, you can have a nice little chitchat with your spouse or an old friend. Or you can just sit here alone while being lost in your favorite book.

Classic Metal Fireplace with a Twist

It’s true that metal fireplaces that are available in the market don’t really look stylish. I mean, they’re basic. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of making a wall fireplace, you can work with a metal fireplace. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a metal fireplace that doesn’t look good.

Check out this metal fireplace that’s easy to install and also looks good. It has a modern and chic look that’s ideal for not just a living room but also for a study room or a home office. The crackling sound of the wood is relaxing and helps you focus on your work better.

A Bedroom Corner Fireplace

While most fireplaces are in the living room (after all, you want to woo your guests), you can also have a fireplace in the bedroom. If you’re a romantic guy or girl, a bedroom fireplace will be the right mood setter for a great evening.

And if you live in a cold climate where it’s snowy most of the time, you’d need a bedroom fireplace – romantic or not. The mantelpiece is great for art pieces as well as house plants. The rug on the floor looks comfortable and the room looks warm and inviting. The TV is strategically installed above the fireplace so you can watch a movie while enjoying the warmth.

An Uncommon Fireplace

This corner living room fireplace has a mantelpiece. And yet, it’s not embedded in the wall. It’s the kind of fireplace you’d have a love-hate relationship with. It’s useful, yes. But it COULD look more beautiful. It lacks the majestic look it could have.

It’s easy to install, easy to use. And yet, it looks like a tragic comedy. However, this shouldn’t deter you from having a fireplace of your own. If you have limited resources – enough space but not the will to carry out all the extra steps to install a fireplace, this would be a good choice.

Circular Corner Fireplace

A fireplace doesn’t necessarily have to be square or rectangle shaped. Check out this circular fireplace with a circular mantelpiece. The white brick fireplace looks good with white walls and white artwork. As discussed earlier, an all-white room looks amazing.

Color is added to the room by dark wooden flooring and colorful cushions on the grey couch. The fireplace also has a candle lamp installed so when it’s nighttime and you want to lower the glow, turn off the fire and light the candle. The perfect traditional way of enjoying a cool day.

Basement Corner Fireplace

You can have a fireplace in the basement as well. Just where the stairs meet the wall, install an electric fireplace. Since the electric fireplace produces the same level of warmth and fire crackling sounds minus the smoke, it’s the perfect type of fireplace for a basement.

If you’ve turned your basement into a second living room or a small apartment, a fireplace is a must-have, especially for houses in cold climatic conditions. With a library built into the basement, you can pick up a book and head to the couch to read it while enjoying the toasty warmth.

A Fireplace in the Bathroom

A fireplace in the living room. A fireplace in the bedroom. Even a fireplace in the basement. But a fireplace in the bathroom?

Check out this bathroom fireplace that’s installed near the corner so you can have a luxurious bath while sipping a glass of wine. If you have this installed in your bathroom, something tells me you’re out of the ordinary and take pride in a rich and comfortable lifestyle, enjoying the little pleasures of life.

We all know that fireplaces have one more use apart from making the room warm and looking all stylish. They are also used to hang stockings at Christmas time. And we know the biggest stockings get the most candies.

The tradition is to hang the stockings on the mantelpiece. Set up the Christmas tree right next to the fireplace. Put a few candles on the mantelpiece along with other Christmas artwork. When it’s the season to be merry, make sure you have the perfect fireplace that will keep you and your family warm.

A Seat Right in Front of the Fireplace

Electric fireplaces give you the option to adjust the temperature. While the higher temperature setting is enough to warm up the entire room, a lower setting will be perfect when you want to sit right in front of the fireplace.

Build a seating area with the fireplace where you can place a few cushions and enjoy a quiet evening. This room looks modern and minimalist and the mantelpiece holds a fern along with a metal candelabra. And wooden flooring always looks great with a room that has a fireplace.

A Family Room Corner Fireplace

A dazzling and graceful family room that’s arranged according to the fireplace. While the grandpa can sit near the fireplace and keep his feet on the stool in the front. That’s the best way to soak up the heat from the fireplace.

The rest of the family can gather around in the family room on the couch while tea or coffee can be served on the twin tables set in front of them. The dark wooden flooring looks classy and the rug adds more splendor to the room. The fireplace is embedded in a stone wall, giving it a rustic look.

Corner Fireplace and L-Couch

If the room is of ungenerous proportions, it can get hard to accommodate everything there. You need a couch in your living room. And you also need a fireplace. One way to adjust everything in there is to manage things around the corners.

With a corner fireplace, you’ll save space which can be utilized in placing the couch. A usual couch wouldn’t fit in such dimensions. In such a case, an L-couch will be a good choice. 

The fireplace is made of stone, which looks good with the cream colored walls and wooden flooring. The leather couch adds to the regality of the room.

A Fireplace That’s Also a Kitchen

Why waste good fire? When you’re toasting your feet, why not roast some marshmallows or prepare some kebabs while you’re at it? This fireplace has a countertop and can be a continuation of the kitchen.

The fireplace has a chimney to let the smoke out and doesn’t look like a traditional fireplace. But it looks wonderful. And practical – in many ways!

Place a houseplant and a small metal statuette on the counter and you’re done with the décor. The fireplace is very beautiful in itself and doesn’t need much help.

A black matte look and unique design. That’s how you get a fireplace that’s completely different than what your neighbors or friends have. This beautiful fireplace doesn’t use real wood but it’s electric instead so the matte finish remains the same even after years of use.

The black color is strikingly contrasting to the white walls and gives a magical look. The white vases on the shelf add to the brightness of the room. And the bonsai in the corner makes it come alive with greenery. 

A Little Steampunk Touch

Give your living room a steampunk touch with a corner fireplace and a metal strip chandelier. The fireplace is made of natural rocks and the room looks pretty traditional. Except for the chandelier that adds a steampunk look to the room.

If you’re a true steampunk fan, you can add a few gears and chains on the mantelpiece to display your love for everything quirky and odd. The thing with steampunk is that you can always mix it up with other types of décor without having it look out of place.

The Hooded Fireplace

The hooded fireplace reminds me of a stormtrooper. Maybe because of its white color or maybe because of its hooded shape. Or maybe because of both these factors. Whatever the case, this fireplace will look attractive, whether or not you’re a Star Wars fan.

Installed in a corner, this electric fireplace is enough to induce joy in the hearts of people sitting around it. The white surroundings make the room look bright and the wall art adds color to the otherwise colorless room. A perfect match of white with colors.

A Fireplace that Was

Sometimes, lighting a fire can be too much hassle. If you feel chopping up wood, lighting the fire, taking care of all the smoke and soot, and then getting rid of the ashes is way too much work (and it actually is, to be honest), behold the fireplace that’s convenient.

Instead of lighting up chunks of wood, light up a few candles in there. This way, the fireplace will never lose its color. If you’re proud of the bright white color of your fireplace and you don’t want it to turn black, just light up the candles. They look beautiful and stylish, minus all the hassle and fuss.

A Wooden Corner Fireplace

Fireplaces can’t be wooden. Because they’ll burn up the wood, right? Not this one. This fireplace is bold enough to take that risk. It’s a metal fireplace installed in a wooden setting. So the wood will not burn. This gives the fireplace an exclusive look. The metal horse kept on the wooden mantelpiece adorns the fireplace and gives it a royal look.

The side lamps on each corner of the fireplace are also metallic, enhancing the luxurious vibe of the room. Notice the houseplant on the side. It’s always a good idea to add some greenery to the place.

Gothic Corner Fireplace

Desire a gothic touch in your living room? If you’re a fan of the medieval arts, this corner fireplace is perfect for you. The gothic fireplace in an otherwise plain and white room will catch the attention of all your guests.

Carefully crafted, this fireplace looks like it came directly from one of those old churches. And it also has the space for a candle directly over the mantelpiece. The beautiful carvings will give many points of focus for your eyes to rest upon.

A Fireplace with Plants

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of lighting up a fire, candles aren’t the only option you have. You can also use the fireplace to keep houseplants. Check out this corner fireplace that’s not intended to be used as a fireplace in the first place.

It’s ideal for big and small houseplants that have found a home in the hollow fireplace space. I think greenery always adds a certain element of peace to the place. Place a chair next to it and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while you read a new book.
