Fireplace Design Using Electric Logs -Electric Log Designs

Fireplace design has changed considerably in the past decade. As electric fireplaces and individual electric log units have developed, the need for a traditional wood-burning fireplace to achieve charm and coziness has lessened.

In fact, electric fireplaces, and electric logs, are cleaner, easier to maintain, more cost effective, and more authentic than ever before. Of course, many people are pursuing fireplace designs that start from the beginning but what about those people who already have fireplaces built into their homes?

Even if you already have a traditional fireplace with the flue, chimney, mantel, surround, and every other structural component that wood burning fireplaces use to create their charm—this doesn’t mean that electric fireplaces are out of the realm of possibility for you.

In fact, more people than ever are foregoing wood burning and instead buying electric logs to place inside their traditional fireplace. Because you already have the setup, there’s no need to start from scratch just because your fireplace itself doesn’t plug in. If you want an electric fireplace design, but already have a regular fireplace, purchasing electric logs is all it takes to revolutionize your fireplace.

Electric logs come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. Some look, feel, and even sound) more authentic than others. Depending on how much you are willing to spend, you can add some impressively realistic electric logs to your existing fireplace design.

Here’s how electric logs work. Whether glowing or suggesting small flame, you can find electric logs that either contain or conceal small light bulbs (usually orange, red, and/or yellow) that flicker to create the realistic irregularity of licking flames. They also glow, and many come with a tiny audio system to reproduce the subtle crackling and popping sounds..

All told, modern fireplace design can integrate electric logs very effectively. With the sound, appearance, and even warmth of a wood burning fireplace (with less mess, hassle, and hazard), fireplace designs are well served by the addition of electric logs. The result is a full sensory experience that provides all the comfort, warmth, and coziness that you can imagine.
