Vintage Fireplace / July 19, 2018 / Léa Talbot.
In terms of the frame metal used for the door, cast-iron (which has been a popular metal since the days of Victorian times) is still very popular even today. Cast-iron being one of the cheapest metals around, is very durable and will last many years if looked after correctly. It also looks great in many designs, both antique and contemporary. Cast iron will not chip or break and does lose its visual properties over time like many other metals.
The wood burning fireplace requires effort to create a fire: putting up the kindling, setting the logs on fire and regulating the fire. Whereas, propane need only a click of a switch, then turn it off if you don't need it. Houses are heated fast through convective or radiant schemes. this type of device can also be controlled using the remote for easy control of heat and fire. Propane fireplaces are much easier to maintain and clean since there are no log debris and ashes, as compared to wood stoves.
To create an aesthetic vibe of a traditional fire, propane fireplaces use artistic brick logs to radiate heat. Unluckily, that does not do the trick for this type. They lack the authenticity of the aromatic smoke and the crackling of the logs. But, the dancing of the flames is just as lovely as that of the wood burning fireplace. With regards to ambience, still nothing compares to the traditional fireplace. The flames created by propane may be as much as eye catching as the flames from the wood burning fireplace, but the vibe is just really not the same. Fire inside the wood burning fireplace elicit an aura of romance, coziness and warmth that modern fireplaces could not provide.
Quick review. Fireplace tiles are about combining unified natural stones that are glued over supportive mesh backing that eventually creates a seamless tile. If you intend to conduct a small research about the origin of these tiles, I'll save you the effort - most of them are originated from the island of Bali - Indonesia. Decoration ideas provided by this easy tiling technique are countless: 1) Bathrooms: sinks walls, shower floors, shower backsplash 2) Kitchens: countertops and backsplashes 3) Other: patios, swimming pools, decks, fireplaces, and wine cellars.
