Wall-Mounted Fireplaces

Looking for the perfect fireplace to complement the sleek, modern look of your home? Wall-mounted fireplaces may be just the style solution you’re searching for.

“The options are endless with wall-mounted fireplaces, according to an article in The Canadian Press. And here are four reasons why:

  1. They save a lot of space so they’re practical for condos or smaller bedrooms with high beds. “It’s not the traditional fireplace on the floor, so it’s got better viewing. They also work in open-concept rooms for a modern home because you can see it from all angles.”
  2. The number of decorative applications. Homeowners can choose from a selection of interior burners, whether it’s logs, crushed rocks, or glass media. “You take one fireplace and put a dozen looks on it. By taking out the logs and putting rocks in, you’ve got a completely different look.”
  3. The variety of fuel options. Wall-mounted fireplace options include gas, electric, pellet and biofuel.
  4. The ability to captialize on desired shapes. “You start with a flat box in the wall, and you can make it diamond-shaped, rectangular, rounded or even shaped like a heart.”
