Corner electric fireplaces are a great solution for smaller spaces. In small apartments, every square inch counts. However, no matter how big or small the space, the corners of rooms can sometimes go unused. Corner models easily install into any open corner. With so many different sizes and styles, it is easy to find one that matches the current decor. These space-saving designs allow for the maximizing of floor space. However, if there happens to not be a corner available, there are also wall mount and petit foyer fireplaces that take up very little wall and floor space. Wall mount electric fireplaces are an excellent choice for small rooms, apartments or rooms where floor space isn`t available. In rental properties, wall mount fireplaces can be simply attached to the wall and plugged in. Inset models are also available for permanent installation and can be hardwired directly to the home`s electricity. Wall mounted electric fireplaces can be installed in bedrooms at the level to allow it to be viewed from one`s bed.
This other type of fireplace has one of the most traditional looks. A stone fireplace can look gigantic with large stones reaching up the chimney to the room`s ceiling, or it can look fragile with a white, carved stone fireplace surround. The stone fireplace can fit into any fashion of decorating. It can also bring a natural texture and color into a room. Stone fireplaces are usual in older and newer homes. The size of the fireboxes will establish the size of the fireplace needed. The firebox is the interior where the fire will be burning. Older stone fireplaces did not come with doors, but with screens. Those who have homes with very little room for a fireplace will like the cast iron fireplaces. This type can be put up in a home using just a cement slab, the size of the fireplace and a fire proof stone wall at the back. It will require venting into a chimney, or outside, according to your municipal codes. Cast iron fireplaces and stoves are perfect for small areas. Cast iron fireplaces create a smokeless fuel fire so they are appropriate for interiors.
