If you don`t want to go through even working on a faux fireplace design with a real flame setup, then you can have the design of your choice. A ventless fireplace can arrive at your door in a matter of days and within an hour after arrival, you can be enjoying the crackling fire with a cup of coffee in your hand. There are plenty of traditional looking fireplaces with rich wood finishes and wonderful features. You can choose between arch designs with shelving on the side or marble finishes with huge columns. Oak, Mahogany, and Walnut are just a few of the wood finishes while several faux stone finishes exist on cast concrete. Stand alone fireplaces can sit flush against the wall anywhere you want to place them or corner designs can bring new life to any corner around your home.
Many may not consider a virtual fireplace as a serious fireplace option. However, before it is written off completely, it should be noted that today`s technology has brought the virtual fireplace a long way from the mock fireplaces of yesteryear. Today`s virtual fireplaces are basically a DVD that you put into your television or personal computer that creates a realistic illusion of a crackling fire. The DVD loops around and plays continuously until you turn it off. Depending on your expectations, you may find yourself disappointed either by the quality of the video or that it is just not "real" enough for you. However, a virtual fireplace is perfect for small spaces. If you have room for a television or computer, you are already one step closer to having a fireplace. It may only be a facsimile of the real thing, but it is worth looking into if you have limited space and you want to add an ambiance of romance or the warm cozy feel that a real fireplace adds to any room.
