10 Cool Kitchens With Fireplaces Ideas

A fireplace is one of the best ways to make your kitchen or dining room feel more cozy, warm, and welcoming.

In this article, we'll show you several pictures of kitchens with fireplaces to give you an idea of what is possible in your own kitchen.

If you are looking for a kitchen fireplace, modern vent-free fireplaces are perfect for that. They don't require any special structural modification and can be simply hung on a wall or recessed into a wall without any chimney or vent.

This flexibility allows being more creative with fireplace placement. One of the most popular spots, for example, is right above the bar - that would be very hard to implement with a traditional wood-burning fireplace. 

Here are a few ideas of fireplace placement for your kitchen and dining room areas.

1. Kitchens with Fireplace Above The Bar

This placement will look great in a  sleek modern kitchen or a man cave depending on the style and the size of the fireplace you choose. 

Fireplaces We Recommend for Above The Bar Installation

For installations above the bar, we recommend going with either a wall-mounted or recessed electric or ethanol fireplace.

Wall mounted models can be just hung on a wall without any remodeling while recessed models will require you to open up a wall.

Recessed electric fireplaces can be installed into any wall, even drywall. Some models can even be installed into a 2" x 4" wall.

2. Small Kitchens with Compact Fireplaces

You can have a fireplace in your kitchen or dining room even you don't have a lot fo wall space.

Fireplaces We Recommend for Small Kitchens

For small kitchens, we recommend compact wall mounted fireplaces.

3. Kitchens with Fireplace Along The Dining Table

The picture below demonstrates several examples of how long fireplaces create an intimate and luxurious atmosphere in dining rooms when placed along the dining tables.

You can implement this design in your home if you have a dedicated dining room with a large wall space.

Fireplaces We Recommend for Dining Rooms

For installations along dining tables, we recommend a recessed electric, ethanol, water vapor, or gas fireplace. All these fireplaces are vent-free and can be safely installed in your dining room without any chimney. 

Please note that gas and ethanol fireplaces can put out quite a bit of heat and burn up a lot of oxygen - make sure your dining room is large enough to install them.

4. Outdoor Kitchens with Fireplaces

Adding a fireplace to your outdoor kitchen is a great idea. It can add warmth when needed and allow you and your guest to enjoy the outdoors even when it's colder outside.

Here are a few ideas of outdoor kitchens with a fireplaces seating area.

Fireplaces We Recommend for Outdoor Kitchens

For outdoor kitchens, we recommend outdoor gas, electric, or ethanol fireplaces. 

Gas fireplaces look great and give off plenty of heat. You can choose a traditional or a long linear look depending on the style of your outdoor area.

Ethanol fireplaces give off a little less heat but are more flexible than gas when it comes to installation options. They are also easier/cheaper to install because they don't need to be connected to gas or electricity.

Outdoor electric fireplaces will give you the least amount of heat, some models don't even have the heater at all. They are great if you are looking for a maintenance-free fireplace that you can use even when it's hot outside.

6. Fireplace Between Kitchen and Living Room 

Placing a see-through fireplace into a dividing wall between the kitchen and living room is a very popular concept. It allows you to enjoy the fireplace in both rooms and creates a semi-open floor plan.

Let's take a look at several beautiful installations.

Fireplaces We Recommend for 

If you are looking for a ventless 2-sided fireplace to install between the kitchen and living room we recommend looking into ethanol fireboxes, ethanol burners, water vapor fireplaces, 2-sided gas fireplaces, and 2-sided electric fireplace.

7. Fireplace Built Into Kitchen Island

Installing a fireplace into a kitchen island is a creative way to add a fireplace to your kitchen without sacrificing any wall space. 

Fireplaces We Recommend for Kitchen Islands

If you are looking to replicate these creative kitchen island installations, we recommend looking into electric or ethanol fireboxes.

Both types of fireboxes are insulated and can be installed into combustible materials.

However,  with ethanol type, you do get a real flame and need to be mindful of clearances to any combustibles around the fireplace.

If you want to stay on the safe side, electric firebox is a perfect choice.
