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.
A rock fireplace design promotes a classic feel to any interior or exterior space. It shows off as strong and lasting which means it can very well serve as a focal point for your overall interior design theme. Rock fireplace designs can make use of the rock material in creating the surround either just focusing on the opening frame or it can extend upwards even reaching the ceiling. For this type of fireplace, it‘s best to use the rock‘s natural color. Possible choices here are to utilize only one color or mix different shades of the rock material. As rocks are quite similar to the stone, they come in various colors such as grey, limestone and light orange or the brick shade.
Similarly, electric fireplaces offer ease of installation, ease of use, and a variety of design options. But also like gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces do not provide a real wood burning fire. Another question that needs to be asked is where in your home do you want to position your fireplace? The best placement is near an outside wall with ample room for framing of a chimney chase to house the unit and venting components. For installation in Canada, the chase would need to be insulated, vapour barriered, and drywalled in order to meet building code requirements. Each fireplace comes with an installation manual that details the framing and installation requirements. Typically, a fireplace installer would require that the chase be framed and prepped prior to the installation of the fireplace.
