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.
The greatest way to save yourself money is to build a ventless fireplace with a fireplace insert and use gel fuel to make your fire. You can literally put a fireplace anywhere with just these items. Of course, you`ll need wood to build a structure and faux textures for your decorations. But, you can have a fireplace in a matter of days rather than a few weeks. If you want your own design, you can use your imagination to literally take you anywhere. First, decide where you want to put your fireplace. Figure out where the studs are in the wall. You can either locate your fireplace in the wall between the studs or in front of the wall. Build a faux hearth, a surround and even a faux chimney to the ceiling if you want. You won`t have to build it through the roof. It`s just there for looks. Bookshelves on the side are a nice touch. If you build a faux chimney, a flat screen television looks great above the mantel. Now, place your fireplace insert in the fireplace and light your gel fuel. Depending on how much quality and craftsmanship you put in the design of your fireplace, it will look exactly the way you want, completely original and totally functional.
