Nothing beats the crackle and smell of a real wood fire! Wood burning fireplaces do come at a cost however and are typically your most expensive fireplace option. As well as being costly, wood burning fireplaces are more labour intensive than either a gas burning or electric unit. There is a necessity to split and store fuel wood. The fireplace needs to be cleaned on a regular basis as does the chimney to ensure that creosote does not build up. There are a number of options available for wood burning fireplaces that include different door and facing configurations, blower configurations, and efficiency choices.
The late Victorian age brought a mixture of styles. In direct contrast to the Georgian, Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, the Victorian era avoided sameness and had a richness that appealed to all. It was customary to decorate mantels with plush velvet pelmets; over-mantels had many shelves and brackets and sometimes the whole mantelpiece was backed with a mirror - plate glass became fashionable around this time. The late Victorians particularly loved Jacobean architecture, with its rich profusion of Renaissance and medieval motifs.
