Own project or ready-made fire?

Private project. It gives originality and individuality, but will almost certainly require the construction of the foundation because of its considerable weight.

Ready set. Selecting this option, you must be aware of the appearance and characteristics of the future fireplace. The prices for the kits can vary in significant range depending on the materials and characteristics.

After all, another question goes in top while choosing a fireplace – what furnace is better to use: open or closed?

If the fireplace is going to be used as a heating device, the best option would be a closed furnace. Chamber furnace, in this case, has a door made of a special fireproof glass. These modern fireplaces sometimes equipped with a system of room air intake.  It means the device will warm all the incoming to the room air.

Fireplaces with open fires stop warming the room as soon as the fire is extinguished. In addition, these fireplaces require closer attention, because a spark from its burning may scatter to all directions. Among the advantages of this type of fire is only worth noting that it is a classic fireplace.

Basically, the fireplaces are executed in classic style (unless it is a tiny electric heater).
