Inglenook Fireplaces

A fireplace is a beautiful and cozy addition to any room, commercial or residential, at any time of year. Their magnificent designs provide a stunning centerpiece to a space or a spectacular divide between areas of both homes and businesses. There are plenty of designs to choose from; inglenooks, tabletops, and so many more.

Join us as we discuss the inglenook fireplace, its history, and its reintroduction into modern furnace designs.

The Inglenook Fireplace

Inglenook fireplaces are descendants of the open fireplace. Inglenook, also called chimney-corner, refers to the space adjoining into a fireplace. The term comes from the old Scottish word 'ingle', which means domestic fire and 'nook.' Prominent architects who incorporated the inglenook fireplace include Frank Lloyd Wright. Below is a photo example.

Inglenook fireplaces often had a seat or stand-in alcove on one side (or both) to enable the owners to get as close to the fire as possible.

When was the first inglenook fireplace built?

The inglenook fireplace came into being around the 12th century. Homeowners would light fires in corner wood fireplaces, causing smoke to flood the entire house. As time passed, they developed an enclosure. Those who cooked and tended the fire stood within the hearth's confines.

Soon after, they positioned benches on opposite sides of the room so that more family members could share the cozy atmosphere in the living room. The inglenook fireplace, also known by the name "chimney-corner," grew and reached its peak during the Middle Ages in large cities such as London, England.

It became a regular fixture in many homes, more commonly in the drawing-room. Inglenook fireplace openings often 2-3m measured in width and some 1-1.5m in height. They were installed in a wall within the home, with the hearth serving as a cooking area and the enclosing alcove with seats serving as a gathering place for warmth.

They built the inglenook fireplace from the same absorbent or permeable materials as the rest of the home. These absorbent materials include stone, timber, and lime plaster. With changes in building design, kitchens became separate rooms, while inglenook fireplaces served as cozy warming spots in the living area.

With the development of central heating, the inglenook fireplace declined in popularity and now is more for decoration.

The current fate of Inglenook Fireplaces

The inglenook fireplace is now more common in houses within the countryside, where people still use furnaces. You'll find it in a country living room or dining room. If you're looking for ideas for an inglenook fireplace design, I suggest going with heatilator wood-burning fireplaces.

Inglenook fireplaces are a beautiful thing of history and can really add to the look and feel of your home. Google search find is an excellent place to get more information and design ideas on inglenooks; there are various pins and photos to sift through.

There are plenty of ways to decorate your inglenook fireplace for your ideal home. There are a few websites where you can borrow some inspiration, such as Old house journal and remodelista home inspiration stories are great sources of inspiration. The use of horse brasses and ironwork is a popular trend in decorating an inglenook fireplace.

You can get more ideas from Interior Archive; these websites are a goldmine for designs and information.

What is the most popular fireplace?

Here is a comprehensive list of the most popular fireplaces, according to recent trends in interior design magazines and websites such as old house journals, ideal home, and Pinterest. Styles vary from more seamless linear models to ultra-modern and portable tabletop furnaces.

  • Linear Fireplace

The most common type of fireplace at the moment is the linear fireplace. It's more common with gas fireplaces and with the more traditional ones. The linear fireplace features a sleek and modern fireplace surround, with marble and tile finishing on either side of the hearth.

  • Corner wood fireplace

Other popular fireplaces include the corner wood fireplace. It is common in apartments with an open floor plan, allowing you to enjoy the warmth and the view from almost every location in the room. This is common for gas fireplaces since it is simple to build a gas fireplace in interior rooms with no fireplace.

  • Electric Fireplace

Electric fireplaces are also increasing in popularity; they are energy efficient, providing heat not just to the living room but the entire house. It's an excellent fireplace idea for your living space; you can find many photos on Pinterest to choose from. Another advantage is its protection. They are without a doubt the most secure model for households with young children or pets.

You can also customize electric fireplaces. Also, they do not require regular maintenance. If you are a lover of the simple things of life, then the electric fireplace is the solution for you.

  • Brick Fireplace

Exposed brick lends a timeless, classic look to your fireplace and adjacent wall. Combine with wood millwork and a wood mantel for a modern, refreshed look; it's a relatively common feature in many homes. You can also decorate the mantle with portraits and other artistic pieces from Panda Country Primitives, Bucks County. What's more, you can modify your brick fireplace into a bread oven.

What paint to use near a wood-burning stove?

Wood burning stoves are usually shipped with a coat of heat-resistant paint added to the stove's surface as normal. Wood stoves can get worn or rusty with time due to use, and this is more noticeable on the surface of the stove due to general wear and tear and paint peeling off.

To withstand the high temperatures faced by the body of a stove, use high-temperature heat resistance paint products. You can add stove paint to a wood stove in spray or paint form, but spray-painting a stove is a faster and simpler choice.

For those with an inglenook fireplace, ensure you use a flame-retardant topcoat. While they are not heat resistant, they can easily tolerate temperatures of about 70-80°C. You rest easy knowing that you are not coating the surface with something combustible.


The inglenook fireplace is a descendant of the open fireplace. The word inglenook comes from a Scottish term for fire and nook. It became a favorite during the 12th century, all the way to the 18th century, during the industrial revolution. Families would use it for heating as well as cooking.

As time passed, the kitchen became a separate room, and the inglenook fireplace was used for heating only. With the development of central heating, it declined in use. Fortunately, it is making a steady comeback. It's now a favorite for country homes, especially in London.

Inglenook fireplaces are an excellent decoration for your living room and home. Not only do they keep you warm, but they add a stylish yet cozy feel to the aesthetic of your house.
