Gas fireplaces have always provided a convenient way to enjoy the dancing flames of a burning fire, but they have come a long way from the meek blue flames & lackluster heat efficiency of the original gas fireplace models. Modern gas fireplaces offer a sleek & stylish way to add warmth and an instant relaxing atmosphere to your favorite living space and even supplement your heating system on those cold winter days. If you haven’t delved into the convenience and functionality of modern gas fireplaces, this guide can help.
Modern gas fireplaces are the ultimate combination of efficient functionality and elegant beauty. The clean, bold lines coupled with large, unobstructed viewing area add an impressive impact to any room. Whether you live in an urban area where space is limited or you prefer décor that is sleekly styled with clean lines, a modern gas fireplace is the perfect option.
The minimal design, low profile construction, and flexible installation requirements mean that these units can be added to rooms or areas where a traditional masonry fireplace & chimney would not be practical. Some modern gas fireplace models are designed to be hung on the wall, much like a large picture frame. There are even multi-sided units that allow you to view the dancing flames of the fire from different angles or even different rooms.
If you want to modernize your current gas or wood fireplace, you can convert your traditional masonry or pre-fab unit into a contemporary design by installing a gas fireplace insert. These energy efficient models offer modern looking displays that can quickly revitalize the look of a worn down wood or gas burning fireplace, accentuating your modern or urban decor. The sleek & clean lines of the insert surround will give you the contemporary look you are seeking without the expense of building a brand new fireplace & venting system. The most important thing that needs to be considered when converting to a gas fireplace insert is the current size of your firebox. Our hearth experts can quickly determine the proper dimensions for your new appliance and suggest the best unit for your style & taste.
While log fires can feel rustic, they may not match the ultra-sleek look of your modern abode. While faux logs were the only option for traditional gas fireplaces, homeowners can now further customize their modern gas fireplace by choosing from a large selection of fire glass or decorative stone. Fire glass comes in a wide variety of colors and can be chosen to match your current interior design color & style choices. Fire glass is tempered glass that does more than simply hide the inherent gas pluming at the bottom of the firebox. It is also used to retain and direct heat to help create an efficient heat source. If you prefer a more natural feel, fire stones which resemble river rock are a great option.
Gas fireplaces have always been a convenient alternative to messy & high-maintenance wood fireplaces, but there has never been the quality of craftsmanship in the industry as there are with modern gas fireplaces. Whether you want a clean and convenient way to heat your home or simply want to add a breathtaking focal point to your favorite room, a modern gas fireplace has it all.
