Types of fireplaces? What fireplace to take home? Fireplaces are invariably an element of the interior design, which will always be in fashion. In the old times, the hearths (then fireplaces) were the central place in the house where meals were prepared. Fireplaces also heated the buildings. Over time, the architects saw the decorative potential of fireplaces and this is how it is today. If we are wondering what fireplace to choose from, we should know what will be its main task: heating or decoration? The fireplace casing should harmonize with the surroundings, therefore it is worth considering before we make a choice. We have a very large selection of fireplaces on the market. Both lovers of minimalism and amateurs of richer forms will certainly find something for themselves. The choice is very wide. As the first, let's discuss the open and open fireplaces. Here, we can choose between traditional fireplaces with a closed cartridge or opt for an open installation, which is more a decorative element than heating because the open chimney causes a large heat loss. In such a fireplace, due to the fast burning wood, the operating costs are high. Open fireplaces are usually made of ceramic bricks or cement-clay or sandstone. In turn, the hearth is made of ceramic bricks additionally lined with chamotte brick. The housing of such a fireplace can be made of marble, granite, clinker brick, tiles, wood and many others. The closed fireplace inserts are safe, cheaper to maintain and can support the heating of the building. Closed fireplaces are incomparably safer than open fireplaces. Another group of fireplaces are goats, or slow-moving fireplaces. They do not require a lot of space, they are available in various sizes and designs. The convenience is that we do not have to rebuild the entire room. For the cleaners we have electric fireplaces. Clean operation is their greatest advantage. There is no open fire here. The effect of burning wood provides us with a power source in the form of electricity. Safe solution, because we avoid threats related to fire. If we do not have a place to store the fuel and we do not want to light the wood ourselves, choose a gas fireplace. Press the button and it is ready - the gas installation is started. The fireplace works right away. We can regulate the power of the device and hence the size of the flame. At the end, an absolute hit - biofireplaces. They are fashionable and enjoy great popularity. Their uniqueness lies in the change of the fuel burned - from wood and briquettes - to biofuel, in liquid or gel form. What's more, bio ethanol fireplaces are as convenient to assemble as electric ones, because they also do not need to be connected to a chimney. We have a huge range of designs - we can choose from steel, glass or wood. Something warm for everyone .
