In designing contemporary fireplaces, the project commences with a basic design concept. Then a simple measured image is drawn up, which then is transformed into a life-size representation that permits a more detailed look at the moldings and the carving details so that more minute dimensions can be determined. After all of this information is ascertained, the details are sent to a stone mill, and the materials are ordered (10-ton blocks are commonly ordered as a starter piece, but each project will require something different).
In the web, your options are countless. You can choose your fireplace design among the many manufacturers' various lines of fireplaces. Designers have created amazing decorative features in their products which complement modern living spaces. Their outstanding features like high quality construction, dependable venting systems, toughened glass screens, multiple burner kits, lifetime conditional warranties, artistic and innovative mantel styling, use of natural fires-capes including cobalt crystals and natural pebbles and eco-friendly bio fuels are truly inspiring. Other technologically advanced systems like twin feet fixings, baffles for fuel efficiency, drafters for flame stability, smart filling, shut off hinged plate mechanism, electronic ignition switching and overall safety features have been comprehensively incorporated into the modern fireplace.
