Reader request - kitchens with fireplaces

Stacey sent us in a reader request I wanted to tackle today and while it's quite brief, I found it intriguing: "Hi! I'm not sure if you've done this one, but I'd love to see kitchen fireplaces.....thanks!" Easy enough request, but I immediately began to wonder how many photos I'd find of kitchens with fireplaces. I think it's a bit odd to have a fireplace in a kitchen, which tends to be one of the warmest rooms in the house (if you cook that is). Although the more photos I found in my stash the more I thought how fab it would be to have a fireplace to make a kitchen even cosier. I'm sold!

When I opened up my basement kitchen in London the enlarged space had a fireplace, so I put a gas Coalbrookedale Little Wenlock in it - best decision! It was cosy, we used the central heating far less and I could even cook on it - long, slow rice puddings and stews. Hungry just thinking about it.
Not quite such a good idea in warm places.

I had a fireplace in the sitting area of my last kitchen. I just LOVED it. Lovely examples here as well!

Oh man! I was hoping somebody would cover this type of arrangement! I've been lusting after fireplaces... well... in any room really.

Thanks for the inspiration! And secret wishing :)

I can't stop staring at that Dalmation. Do you think it's real??? It's creepy. :)

A fireplace in the kitchen is something I would definitely want in my next home. When my parents built their house in Germany, my Mom wanted one in the kitchen, it's actually connected to the hallway and living room, you can feed it from two sides and the chimney that goes through 2 more floors up heats the whole house. It's awesome! And my Mom uses it for cooking, too. Nice and cozy heat on a cold German winter's day!

hhmm, yes, i'd like to order either Adriano's or Skona Hem's please. Either one will do. Lovely. Perfect for when we one day can afford to punch a hole in the wall, build a new kitchen, and build a fireplace into it!

That Tim Clinch photo is simply divine. It looks like it's waiting for the party to come back from the hunt with the dogs!

Here's my kitchen, with fireplace. I designed it specifically so that I could cook in the fireplace, based on an wonderful book called The Magic of Fire. It was an amazing entertaining focus! Of course, in the summer (this was in New England) I yearned instead for more counter space, but you can't have everything. Given the chance to do it again, I would not have a fireplace in the kitchen unless it was REALLY a huge space, ie not likely. But when it was on, and full of pork sizzling amid the flames.....absolute heaven.
Great design site, thanks! I'll be back!

I love your web-site my mouth dropped when saw Kitchens with fireplaces. I have one in my house and just bought a new chair to put by the fireplace. I have always wanted to see what other people do to decorate their kitchens with fireplaces, but I could never find any on line. WOW!! My inspiration.Thanks

I have an old Canberra Cooker in my kitchen, my house was built in 1925. In Winter I get the cooker cranking, not only does it heat half the house but it bakes an awesome batch of scones!!! ;-)

A fireplace can help make a modern kitchen feel so warm and cheerful! Especially love the giant column fireplace from Hus & Hem. So lovely.

I see that you have posted a lot of pics. from Sweden. It's quite normal to have a fireplace in the kitchen in Scandinavia, it's so cold here in the winter! ;) My parents used to have an old one (just like this in their kitchen back home in Norway, but they threw it out a few years ago. I still miss it!
Love DTI, it's my favourite blog.

Everyone dreams to have the picture-perfect home with a beautiful fireplace in every room, especially when wintery days are almost knocking at our door. But don't feel blue if you don't happen to have that fireplace that you've been longing for.
