I would like you to consider the wide variety of options available to you when choosing gas fireplaces. You will have the choice of a range of exciting designs including traditional, contemporary and cast iron. Gas fireplaces are certainly currently in vogue, giving a wonderful warm atmosphere to any home regardless of age or style. When surrounded by tiles to complement your home’s décor and with fireside accessories, gas fireplaces become the focal point in your lounge, allowing you to be able to relax comfortably. Gas fireplaces provide instant heat and you can be assured of complete comfort at all times being able to adjust the flame to suit your temperature requirements. It is not just the warmth that gas fireplaces emit which is a plus for any homeowner; these attractive fires also look good, ensuring that you impress your visitors.
Let’s take a closer look at the design options available starting with the traditional gas fireplaces. Fire surrounds for the traditional designs can be chosen from the following finishes; limestone, wood, marble or cast iron. With the contemporary designs, you have the choice of limestone, granite, walnut and satin white surrounds, all offering a completely up to the minute look which will enhance a modern room. Cast iron gas fireplaces come in a variety of designs, the most popular of which are Victorian, Celtic and Spanish styles. These fireplaces give a grand finish to any room and are particularly suited to houses with some history and character. When choosing your gas fireplace I recommend that you consider the décor of your house and the kind of atmosphere you would like to create to ensure that you purchase the most suitable option.
Another option for someone looking for something a little bit different is a fire basket. These fabulous modern designs show off the latest technology in the design of gas fireplaces, providing a contemporary, chic look with plenty of style.
As previously mentioned, tiles can really complement your home’s décor. There is a huge range of gorgeous tiles on the market in a multitude of colours which blend perfectly with the gas fires themselves. These tiles have a wonderful lustre and texture and really bring a touch of class ensuring that the finish on gas fireplaces is perfect.
Let us now look at the fire accessories which add the finishing touches to the perfect fireplace. Whilst these items are not actually necessary with regards to modern gas fireplaces, they do add a touch of glamour to the overall look and we highly recommend you consider adding at least one or two accessories. A brass, copper or pewter companion set combined with a coal bucket looks fantastic particularly when put with a fire screen. These fire accessories add to the authenticity of the gas fireplaces, making them look like real coal fires when in fact they are powered by gas. This has the added bonus of creating an authentic look without all the hard work involved in maintaining a real fire.
