Apartment Fireplace

Having A Fireplace In Your Apartment

Having an apartment with a fireplace can make a smaller space so much more warm and cozy. Most people think that having everything in a small apartment or villa means not having a nice amenity such as a fireplace.

It's just not true. You can adapt the already existent dimensions of an apartment or think in such a manner that we will create the space we need to bring in a new piece of furniture that we really want or maybe make some mounted bookshelves on one wall of the room.

You can even place a fireplace, an object that usually takes up a lot of space and requires unwanted modifications.

A fireplace can be placed in a corner of a room and it could be, for designs sake, linked with some mounted bookshelves that can total a real bookcase.

Depending on the dimensions of our room, we will make a design sketch for the wanted fireplace and for the bookshelves made out of wood or wood-like materials that will be chosen accordingly to the objects that are already situated in the room or accordingly to the material the fireplace will be build from (I mean the material the fireplace has on the surface, not the one it is actually made of).

If we have a tall room then we can build a tall fireplace.

In the case it will grow a lot up or on the contrary, grow horizontally quite a bit, we will have to keep in mind ventilation. In an apartment we might have to use the common ventilation system unless we are on the top floor. To deal with this aspect you will have to bring a specialist and let him do the calculations and plans needed.

Think of the fireplaces creatively. Why not design it with many different shelves that will serve as support for different object we can find around the room? Or we can create spaces to store fire wood that will have just a decorative purpose in a block apartment where the fire can be made using gas. But they will bring the rustic image closer to you and will provide the room with infinite connotations. No matter what the case, a fireplace can certainly add a unique dimension to any apartment.

Fireplace Ideas: Comments, Facts, Trivia, Reference

Fireplace Chimney Savings: Annual chimney cleanings are best done in the off season where you can even get Summer Cleaning Special. Chimney cleaning discount of $ 25 to $ 50 might apply depending on the Chimney Sweep & type of wood fireplace, wood stove or pellet stove needing cleaning. Expect to see a cut off date as the fireplace heating season arrives like Sept. 15th.

Fireplace Screen Idea: Buying a removable screen will allow you to shift the screen away from the fireplace opening so you get the real feel and warmth of the flames while sitting in front of the fireplace. Return the fire screen when the fireplace is just getting going and embers are popping.

Fireplace Screen: Alternate to buying a fixed screen, one can look for an upgraded fire screen version which has sliding screens which move left and right built into the screen's perimeter frame. Advantage of this type of fireplace screen is that you get the protection from the flying embers when closed and full feel of a wood burning fireplace when the screens are open.

Fireplace Heat: Gas, Propane, Wood, Electric Fire Needed

Gas Fireplace: Winter has arrived earlier this year with a vengeance .. ice storm before Christmas and now cold arctic system has moved in after New Years with minus 24 degree weather. Gas fireplace is sure convenient and nice to have in the living room as the evening temperatures drop colder.

Be it a cool basement or colder extra room ... fastest way to get some extra heat is with an electric fireplace as most are set and plug in format. Of course the colder the weather the faster electric fireplaces sell. Electric Dimplex models are displayed and sold at Home Depot and Lowes FYI

Fireplaces on Sale: Looking for an electric fireplace on sale?

Electric Fireplace: Modern electric fireplaces models are now more long and narrow format, much like the HD and newest K4 TV LED screens? There are a number of buying decisions to be made when purchasing an electric fireplace.

If buying a wall-mounted fireplace, will you accept an electric fireplace installed "flush mounted directly to the wall". This means that the fireplace box will project from the wall. Depending on the fireplace model, this projection can be anywhere from 3-5 inches. You want to ask yourself, when you enter the proposed room, will you view the fireplace from the side? If so, you may find fire box venting and light leaks undesirable. Recess mounting into the wall is a more professional finished look and generally preferred but will involve greater remodel work to recess the firebox within the wall.
