Fireplaces to Keep You Warm This Winter

Fireplaces to Keep You Warm This Winter

Baby it’s Cold Outside….

Whether its wood, gas, electric or ethanol, we’ve got the fireplaces to keep you warm this winter.

 

With winter quite literally arriving last week, it’s time to bust out the Uggs and curl up in front of a cozy fire with a good glass of red!

We have been chatting to our good friends at Subiaco Restoration about all things fire, and have some hot (pun intended) tips to share to keep you toasty this winter.

There are quite a few different types of fireplaces out there these days but we’ll stick to the big 3 being Wood, Gas & Electric for now…..

 

WOOD

I think we can all agree there is nothing quite like a wood fire. The smell, the heat and the hypnotic flickering flame gives a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation that is fairly incomparable.

Wood fires are not without their shortcomings though.

As beautiful as they are, they are an investment. Not only initially for the purchase, but for the ongoing use. Buying or chopping wood, storing the wood, lighting it, keeping it lit and then cleaning it can be a bit much for even the most ardent fire lover.

OUR 2 FAVOURITE WOOD FIRES

  • Stûv 21 – Heralding from Belgium, I stumbled across this amazing brand at Denfair a couple of years ago. I love it for its elegant minimalist design. It offers an unimpeded view of the fire with its clever retractable glass door and zero clearance installation. It is also available in a frameless installation or can come with ready to install finishing fascias with built-in wood storage!

  • Gyrofocus – The worlds first suspended fireplace…as epically cool today as it was when it was created in 1968. So cool it was voted “World’s Most Beautiful Object” in the Pulchra Design Competition in Italy in 2009
