When Ventless Fireplaces first came out into the home improvement and home interior markets, they modeled traditional wood burning fireplaces. They were made of rich wood. They had hearths and mantels. But, innovations over the years have helped them step into the twenty first century.
The traditional wood burning fireplace is still the preference for some people. But, we have plenty more options now. No longer are you forced to choose between oak, mahogany, or walnut just to name a few.
Stainless steel designs exist for wall hung ventless fireplaces as well as floor models that can be put in any room. They add a futuristic look to the room just like flat screen televisions and glass walls between rooms. Imagine a white room with hard wood floors and a glass top coffee table. That’s the commonly contemporary living room design that will last for years beyond the twenty first century. Having a stainless steel ventless fireplace in the middle of the room or on the wall just below the flat screen television is the touch you’ve been missing.
Sometimes you want a fire in the room without all the hassle of burning logs and soot. That’s why personal ventless fireplaces make a great solution for small occasions. There are rock designs that take the gel fuel in the center and burn through a glass shield. There are also realistic log designs that also hold the gel fuel in the center. But, that merely scratches the surface.
There are plenty of stainless steel and glass designs that can go anywhere around the home. They don’t just have to be displayed on the coffee table. Tabletop ventless fireplaces are perfect for the patio as well as a stand in the middle of the room or an end table. With your own creativity, you’ll find the best place around your home for a personal fireplace you can literally sit anywhere.
The innovations that have been made with the ventless fireplace solution are more than just design innovations. The gel fuel that burns has increasingly been made more and more eco-friendly. The gel fuel is an isopropyl alcohol that burns into a water vapor and does not damage the home or the environment in any way. But, even the citronella and the ethanol alcohol brands are eco-friendly.
Plus, the refills are also a way to save the environment. Instead of throwing away old containers, simply get refills and reuse the old containers. You won’t be throwing away a handful of aluminum cans every year and no one else will either.
Ventless fireplaces are the most viable option to the traditional wood burning fireplace. You don’t have to store the wood pile. You don’t have to deal with the clean up and the chimney maintenance. But, you can enjoy a real flame fire just like the traditional alternative.
