In modern homes today, we find these wall mounted fireplace in dens, living rooms, even bedrooms
  • Modern Fireplace: The traditional fireplace is considered by many as simply an item of decoration. Their appeal is mostly aesthetic and nostalgic (for looks) rather than practical (for warming a large living area).  Some people like them just to look at and to fill up a blank space in a wall, but rarely use them because of the work involved in acquiring fuel and keeping them clean. But to provide warmth and comfort in a cold wintry day, modern homes are seen with free-standing and centrally located gas fireplaces, gel fireplaces, wood burning fireplaces, and electric fireplaces.
