4 Types of Indoor Fireplaces for a Contemporary Home 

A Guide to Find the Best Electronic Fireplaces

Finding an ideal fireplace for your living room or bathroom can be so challenging. The market is flooded with different styles and designs of gas, wood, ethanol, electric, and traditional fireplaces that require you to have a checklist before you can place your order. To save you the hassle of looking for a fireplace that suits your needs, we highlight some unique fireplaces that you should look forward to getting this year. Here are the four most sought types of indoor fireplaces:

Electric Fireplaces

Electric fireplaces are popular in modern homes because they are easy to install, maintain, and manipulate. They are environmentally friendly and cost-effective to fit compared to wood and gas fireplaces. Most electric fireplaces come with a remote control that makes it easy to regulate the heat produced. You can easily adjust the heat at the comfort of your chair. You can either go for electric mantel fireplaces or shop for electric fireplace furniture. Mantel fireplaces are designed to resemble the traditional wood fireplace that gives your room a classic appeal. Most media furniture like a TV stand come with an electric fireplace. You can shop for this type of furniture if you intend to save some space in the house and still enjoy having a fireplace that keeps your home warm.

Gas Fireplaces

If you want to go green and avoid all the soot that comes from wood-burning fireplaces, then gas fireplaces are your last resort. These fireplaces create more heat at a reduced cost. Although they may not produce more heat like the traditional wood fireplaces, their ability to provide the same feel as wood-burning makes them unique. Ventless or direct-vented gas fireplaces are some options you have in the market. They are easy to install and require minimal maintenance annually, which saves you a lot.

Wood Fireplaces

The traditional wood-burning fireplace is the best you can have installed in your living room or bathroom. The fireplace gives your room a classic look. Although you may spend a lot on purchasing wood, the fireplace produces intense heat that keeps the entire house warm all day. You can shop for wood burning stoves, fireplace inserts, or enclosed fireplaces. All these fireplaces give a cosy feeling of burning wood. Enclosed fireplaces have a glass panel on the firebox view, which helps in heat conservation.

Ethanol Fireplaces

If you are looking forward to giving your living room a contemporary look, then the ethanol-burning fireplace is the ideal choice. Ethanol burning fireplaces are popular in modern homes because they are easy to install and maintain. Although they may not produce much heat like wood-burning fireplaces, they are environmentally friendly. Whether you are on a fixed budget or not, you can always find an ideal ethanol fireplace that suits your needs. You can shop for a tabletop or wall-mounted fireplace. Also, you can convert your traditional fireplace to ethanol burning fireplace by hiring a professional to have an ethanol-burning insert fixed.


When shopping for a fireplace, it is essential to consider its unique features that suit your home. While you may be looking for a fireplace that saves you some bucks on fuel consumption, you want to go for one that will keep your living room or bathroom warm for long. An extensive collection of modern fireplaces exists in the market that you can choose based on your taste and preferences. Ultimately, ensure you find an expert to install your fireplace if you want to stay safe and comfortable.
