What is the effect of fireplace in interior decoration?

The earliest fireplace was a heating device that was set up against a wall indoors. It was a heating device built on the wall. It had a chimney leading to the outdoors. It was a building component that was both decorative and usable.

Nowadays in modern homes, most indoor fireplaces are no longer intended for heating, but as architectural design. The designer fireplace has taken precedence over the gas or wood-burning fireplace intended for heating.  Inserts and water vapor fireplaces, ethanol burners and electric fireplaces offer advantages of simple installation. These are vent less fireplaces that adapt to any design style. For decorators, designers and interior designers, a modern fire gives life to their creations. Finally, they are versatile, environmentally friendly fireplaces that only use clean fuels or water.

What material is used for fireplaces?

A beautifully designed fireplace not only offers utility, but it also creates a cozy ambiance perfect for any home, any time of the year. And in a contest of the best design materials to create that luxurious atmosphere, we’d pick natural stone for its timeless look, strength, and durability. Materials of all kinds can be used in fireplaces. Here are most popular materials used in fireplace design:

  • Porcelain

Porcelain is also a great pick for the fireplace. It is fired at a higher temperature giving it a slightly different look than can be achieved with ceramic unless it is glazed. It stands up to high temperatures just as well as ceramic and often has more options available because of its popularity. Porcelain is a denser and more durable tile than ceramic. It resists chips and scratches, and its durability makes it a good choice for hallways, bathrooms, and outdoor patios. Porcelain can crack if you don’t choose the correct PEI rating.

  • Steel

Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon, one of the world’s most widely used materials. This material has multiple applications, including construction, automotive and electrical engineering. The strength and durability of its construction make it a valuable product for fireplace designs.

  • Glass

Glass is one of the most popular materials used in fireplace designs. It is a durable, heat-resistant material that can be used to create various looks.

  • Brick

Ceramic bricks are used in masonry construction, typically laid using various mortars. It has been used for construction and is one of the most durable construction materials available.

  • Stone

Stone is one of the most ancient materials. Many stones are heat-resistant, so they make excellent fireplace materials. A stone fireplace can be custom-made to fit any space and design style. Each variety of natural stone has unique features that make it ideal for specific design choices and applications. Here, we’ll discuss the most commonly used types of natural stone and how these stone options differ.

1) Adoquin

Adoquin is a type of quartz stone found in Mexico. Because it’s both lightweight and durable, adoquin is ideal for many projects, including fireplaces.

2) Granite

The popularity of granite is due to both its durability and the wide range of colors it comes in. It can be either polished for a smooth look or left in its natural, porous state for a rougher finish.

3) Limestone

Limestone is best used for gas or electric fireplaces because it’s less heat resistant. Wood fires burn hotter and limestone will crack in very high temperatures.  It’s also typically less costly than other natural stones.

4) Marble

Nothing beats marble for class and elegance. If you’re looking for a dramatic stunner of a stone, then you should consider marble. It’s highly heat resistant and can have a smooth or rough finish to fit whichever style you’re looking for.

 

What’s the price for a fireplace?

In Canada, fireplace price is determined by the type of fireplace you purchase, such as gas, wood-burning, or electric.

Gas Fireplace

Gas fireplaces are ideal if you’re looking for all the ambiance of a traditional wood-burning fireplace but without the need to purchase wood.

If this is the fireplace you’re looking to install, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2,280 to $4,030, on average. Vented vs vent-free fireplaces also affect the cost, with labor being higher for a vented gas fireplace.

On average, the labor for a vented gas fireplace is roughly $2,500 to $2,800. However, the labor for a vent-free fireplace is about $1,200, if not less.

Wood-Burning Fireplace

If you decide to install one, a wood fireplace costs anywhere between $700 and $30,000. This large price discrepancy is based on whether or not your home already has proper ventilation and a working chimney.

While this popular, traditional fireplace is among the most commonly used, the construction options are endless, reflecting a varied price point.

Electric Fireplace

If you choose to install an electric fireplace, here’s what an electric fireplace costs. The price will range from as low as $100 to as high as $2,200, with some electric fireplaces being more expensive. Labor plays a large role in the overall cost, and can range from $0 to $365, on average.

If you’re looking for a handyman to install your electric fireplace, you can expect to pay about $40 to $65 per hour. Handymen often charge a minimum service fee ranging from $50 to $125.

Stone fireplace

The average cost for stone fireplace installation around the nation is between $3,000 and $5,000, with authentic masonry fireplaces hitting upwards of $10,000. However, every single fireplace is unique, and there are many considerations to evaluate when assessing the cost.

What maintenance does a fireplace need?

How you maintain your fireplace will largely depend on the type you have: wood-burning or gas. It takes more effort to maintain a wood-burning fireplace. Still, homeowners will put up with the extra work for an authentic fireplace experience—nothing beats seeing a pile of logs catch on fire, listening to the sound of crackling wood, and smelling the smoky scent of a real fire! After that real fire dies down. However, there’s ash, soot, and burnt wood scraps left to clean up.

In contrast, a gas fireplace offers the heat and hominess of an indoor fire with the flick of a switch. And after you’ve had enough, you just flick the switch again and go to bed. Lighting up a gas fireplace is really as easy as that, but regular maintenance is still necessary to keep your unit clean and safe.

FAQ

Vented logs require a fully functioning chimney to operate. The logs are often made of refractory cement and highly detailed, and the fire is full and reminiscent of a true wood-burning fire from an aesthetic standpoint. Vent-free logs provide a significant amount of heat and do not require a functioning chimney. However, the flame presentation is sparse and not as realistic.

You should treat your fireplace similarly to how you treat your car – it’s important to operate it regularly to keep it running smoothly. Just like an annual tune-up, your fireplace will need annual maintenance and cleaning once a year. Hamilton Parker offers this service, which includes us not only cleaning and prepping your fireplace for the winter, but ensuring everything is operating safely and correctly.

Depending on the model of your fireplace, a blower may or may not be an optional accessory. Only a few wood-burning fireplaces have the capability to add one, whereas a majority of direct vent gas fireplaces will either come with one or have it as an optional accessory. It’s important to remember that a blower is meant to supplement the heat output of your fireplace, not increase it.

Because they are less porous, more dense, more durable, and moisture-resistant, porcelain tiles require less maintenance than ceramic tiles. They are less likely to scratch, chip, or stain; additionally, they tend to last longer than ceramic tiles.

If you already have a fireplace or are thinking of having a wood burner or stove installed in the near future, then we would always recommend using porcelain tiles.
