Types of fireplaces
- A real wood-burning fireplace, unfortunately, can only be installed in your own home with a spacious living room, while carefully observing all fire safety rules. In addition, it requires complex care and considerable costs for masonry, installation of the chimney, and so on.
- Bio-fireplace is a frame in which the heating unit is installed. Biofireplace works at biofuel and gives the real flame unlike electric, without demanding installation of a flue as at burning only water and carbon dioxide is emitted.
A fireplace is not built into the wall and is therefore mobile. If necessary, it can be moved from place to place.
There is one more excellent alternative to a wood fireplace - electric. As the name implies, it works on electricity and is able to heat a room as well as a real fireplace. And the ability to turn off the heating function allows you to use the fireplace in the warm season.
At the same time, electric fire can even be installed in the apartment, since in fact it is a portal or a niche in the wall where the electric firebox is installed. Manufacturers of modern electric fireplaces use high-quality LCD panels for realistic imitation of fire. For a greater effect, the sound of crackling firewood is also reproduced.
Electrofireplace with a steam generator can perform the function of air humidification, which is very important in modern urban apartments. Among the shortcomings can be called perhaps the increased consumption of electricity.

Electric Fireplace Design
Electric fireplace can be built-in, wall or island. The first option is most relevant for small living rooms, as it is built into a niche or column and takes up the least amount of space.
Portal decoration can be made in any style, based on the overall design of the living room. Depending on the materials chosen, the fireplace will harmoniously fit into any style from classic and modern to hi-tech and loft. This may be a facing stone, metal sheets, decorative brick, stucco. The color scheme must comply with the overall decision of the living room.
Tip: the constant attribute of the living room, the TV, should not be placed near the fireplace, since these objects will “argue” with each other, riveting everyone’s attention to themselves.
Electric fireplace should not be placed too close to the windows, otherwise in the daytime the desired visual effect will fade due to the bright sunlight.
Above the fireplace often have a shelf for various interior accessories, photographs. A comfortable fireplace, armchairs, and a coffee table for creating a “fireplace corner” are placed near the fireplace. For more comfort, you can even put a rug on the floor, which is not possible to make a real fireplace with an open flame.
More rigorous classical styles suggest symmetry in the design of the fireplace area and the decor of the fireplace, while modern styles allow more relaxed dynamic asymmetric solutions. Inspiration can be drawn from the photo of the finished living room interiors with electric fireplace.
