Fireplaces have these days become a piece of art for adding to the chic interiors. They fulfil the basic need of providing warmth to the surroundings as well as play a role in setting the mood due to the inviting interiors. To compliment the interiors, several designs of fireplaces are now available in the market. Based on your requirements, you can get fire installation done at your place. In order to ease the process of selection below discussed are some tips.
- Consider the style – you will find different styles and designs in fireplaces but the three most commonly used ones are opening, hearth and the firebox. All these designs can be customized as per your need like the hearth can be installed at the floor level or raised or installed below the level of floor. Fireboxes can be dropped, raised or flush. The surrounding can be designed in natural stone, timber, granite etc. with a fire resistant finish.
- Size – depending on the location where the fireplace needs to be installed, the size of the fireplace can be decided. For interiors, if the space is large, you will need a large one. You can also consider the smart option of getting the double sided fireplaces that warm the adjoining areas. If you want to install it at the patio, you can go for free standing options.
- Fuel – there are generally three fuel options when it comes to fireplaces. These are wood, gas and denatured ethanol. The gas and ethanol are the preferred fuel options as fire places operating on these fuels do not require much cleaning and maintenance.
