Current-day wood burning stoves come in a plethora of wonderful finishes, styles, and sizes. They are designed with your lifestyle and preferences in mind. Almost all modern wood burning stoves are perfectly designed and stylishly finished to meet the special decor and style preferences of different homeowners. That said when shopping, you can be sure to find a good stove that has an inflection best suited for your home decor and style.
You can adjust the flames, and they don't waste heat the way the older models did by trapping it inside, or the way wood-burning fireplaces do by letting most of it escape out the chimney or flue. Contemporary fireplaces demonstrations that something pretty can be completely practical. And convenient. There are no ashes or dead embers to clean out regularly, and there is no need to be able to light a fire with newspaper. If you already have a wood burner, you can get a new gas insert to convert that old fireplace into a better fireplace.
