Wood-Burning Brick Fireplaces
There’s nothing quite like the traditional look of a wood-burning fireplace, especially one plated by a beautiful brick display. Gas log fireplaces can give off the look of real logs, but it’s not quite the same. There’s nothing like that authentic crackle and even the smell of a wood-burning fireplace bringing the room together.
Of course, a wood-burning fireplace also has its downsides. Despite the ambiance achieved, there’s a lot of soot and ash to clean up afterward. Purchasing and storing wood each year can be annoying. And they can be difficult to start up.
Modern Gas Fireplace
Modern gas fireplaces can be completely customized to fit your style. For example, you can have a beautiful solid slate fireplace surrounded by a tile mosaic. An elevated gas fireplace may be surrounded by panels painted to match the walls, so it’s almost like a beautiful, comforting wall hanging.
Besides, there are many advantages to owning a gas fireplace over a wood-burning fireplace, even if it’s not quite the same experience. There’s the ease of startup to consider and the minimal maintenance. It’s safe, decorative, and worth the investment in your home if you plan to sell in the future.
A free-standing wood-burning stove could be a welcome addition for single-room heating anywhere in the house. One major advantage is that it does not require you to take advantage of existing ventilation, as the flue can be added to the home almost anywhere. It can adequately heat a room and it’s a greener way to do so. With the right décor, it may be a great industrial addition (but many people prefer the look and feel of built-in fireplaces).
