Modern Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Paislee Rowan.
Again, you will also be fascinated by another modern fireplace which has a toughened surround glass that projects a "disappearing" effect. It has sleek and cool lines. Its steel bench hangs between the glass surround creating the illusion of dancing flames off the reflective glass screens. One more type is a cylindrical shaped "teal light" outdoor fireplace. It is a free standing portable type with a round stainless steel base encasing an ethanol burner. It can be operated by using the lid which puts out the flames when it is in the proper position. The uniqueness of this version is the elevated flame with its brilliant light above the steel base brought about by its raised up tempered glass surround.
A corner fireplace door is somewhat smaller than an ordinary fireplace door. They usually come in the traditional accordion-type frame because of the limited space offered by the walls. In choosing a fireplace door from the rack, the purchaser has to ensure that the door is big enough to cover the widest area of the fireplace opening without covering the whole mantle design. The door should overlap the whole fireplace opening in order to serve its purpose, but should not keep the fireplace itself from being seen and admired.
It gets cold in the room, and it's really frustrating. I have a wood burning fireplace, and I'm probably one of the last people out there to have one. Many are switching over to gas due to the money it saves, and the positive effect on the environment as logs aren't being burned. I just bought my first fireplace blower and lit up my first fire last week. Man, does it ever make a difference! I can't believe I've gone all these years without one.
Electric fireplaces offer several significant advantages over the other types: These electric units are easy to install. They do not require a chimney and therefore can be installed in various rooms even if they don't support wood-burning ventilation. They are light weight and easy to move and so can be used in different rooms as required.
