Well, hopefully wherever you are, you aren’t still having to use your fireplace! (If you ARE, I’m so very sorry…and I promise, Spring will be here soon!) But one of the things I would love to have had in our home when we purchased it was a fireplace. I know, I know, we live in Florida – what on earth do WE need a fireplace for?! Well, mark my words, one of these days, I’m getting my fireplace. If it’s added to this house or in another house we move to down the road…I’m getting one! Until then…I’ll continue to play the “Fireplace for Your Home” channel on Netflix. (Did you know there WAS such a thing?! It’s amazing!)
Nevertheless, there’s nothing quite like a REAL fireplace. And I love almost any kind…so I wasn’t sure exactly which kind I’d like to have in the future. What are the benefits to each “model”? Should we have one over the other for our area? What’s the easiest to clean? The easiest to fuel? Which is the most comforting to sit in front of in a cozy chair?!
No joke, while I’m pondering these options, Matt from Northshore Fireplace contacts me and asks if I would be interested in sharing a Fireplace Comparison Guide here on the blog. WHAT?! Um, yes, please! Check out how this thing is broken down – masterful!
I had NO idea there was a difference in gas in being vented or unvented…and a wood pellet stove? How wonderfully vintage! I love that any question you could ever have about fireplaces is answered in this ONE graphic!
Do YOU have a fireplace? What kind? What kind do you WISH you had, and why?
