Whether it’s a small room or a room you’re planning to fill with furniture and accessories, you might want a fairly discrete fire that doesn’t require extra space to set up yet is efficient in heat dissipation and design. In such cases, the best option is not a traditional fireplace with a hearth and a shelf but an inexpensive wall-mounted fireplace that requires almost no space but can be placed on one of the walls.
The importance of wall fires
Most of these gas stoves, especially if raised off the ground, look like framed paintings, especially those that don’t have an open front. But this “unreal” aspect is compensated by the dynamism of the flame and the natural layer of wood, charcoal, or pebbles, creating a fireplace effect. Newer gas fireplaces come in various types; some mimic older classic fireplaces while others, like the hole-in-the-Wall Fires, showcase a more modern built-in design. The heat source of a modern gas fireplace, as its name suggests, is gas. No more cracks from burning firewood or even the pleasant smell of tar. Now everything is measurable and responsible and translated into numbers.
With a smooth bezel edging and a slim look, these die-cast metal or stainless steel fireplaces will fit perfectly in a minimalist living room with little furniture with cast iron or steel frames and legs, or even in a living room, bedroom with a modern bed with metal frame and legs. The glossy polish of brushed steel or the smooth elegance of cast iron will make this “image” of fire stand out in such a room, becoming a focal point among the sparse furniture. If, on the other hand, gray or black is too boring for you, you can order a fireplace with a brass finish and fascia edging.
For a large living room with a lot of furniture, where such a nondescript picture frame would be lost among the many lamps, you can choose an open gas fireplace with stone cladding. A travertine floor or a small area around this fireplace would be perfect for the façade and the large colored stones on the bed.
The fireplace will suit any modern style room, adding a touch of brightness and grandeur. If you want to place it in a formal dining room elegant with a marble floor, you can opt for a graphite finish panel and match the color of the pebbles to the room’s color scheme. You get a sophisticated look without the help or need for furniture and accessories.
Whatever the style or purpose of the room, a wall-mounted fireplace looks spectacular and effectively heats and saves space. Also, because it doesn’t have a chimney, this type of fire doesn’t need a chimney, chimney, or outside wall, so it’s completely economical.
