Creating - Electric Fireplace Designs
The advent of electric fireplaces has opened up a whole new type of fireplace design for both homeowners and businesses alike. They offer up the heat, charm, and ambience of a traditional fireplace, yet are easier to operate and maintain, and create less mess than a traditional, wood-burning fireplace.
Fireplace designs can incorporate electric fireplaces in several different ways. Some are free-standing (and therefore can be taken with you if you move to a new home, or even shifted to a different room in some cases, while others are built into the wall, just like traditional fireplace designs, but with an electric heat source.
From an aesthetic perspective, electric fireplaces offer all of the cues that we love most: the glowing logs, the mesmerizing flames, and even the warming heat (though often not quite as much of it), and of course the charming mantel. So from a creative perspective, the your electric fireplace design can be developed using the same stylistic choices you would with a traditional fireplace.
The element where designing electric fireplaces diverges from designing their traditional counterparts, however, is a more practical one. Because electric fireplaces do not actually burn up wood (and therefore do not produce considerable amounts of smoke), they do not need the chimney and venting work that traditional fireplaces do. And unlike gas fireplaces, you do not need to worry about connecting to a tricky fuel source.
Electric fireplace design, rather, simply requires that you have access to a standard electrical outlet. Because they do not create as much heat, they are generally considered to be much safer than these other fireplace styles. But the heat they do produce is spread out into the room with a quiet blower, so that your enjoyment is both a visual and a physical one.
Fireplace designs for electric fireplaces can do everything that traditional fireplaces can do, but more. Because you are not beholden to gas hookups, chimneys, or ductwork, you can design your electric fireplace to go virtually anywhere in your home. Even apartment dwellers are choosing electric fireplace design to bring personalized warmth into their homes. And with electric fireplaces, they can bring their work with them if they decide to move.
At the end of the day, electric fireplace design is versatile and affordable, and most importantly, like any fireplace, charming.
