Which fireplace suits me best?
“What to consider when purchasing a fireplace?” What are you looking for in a fireplace? Is heat a priority or are you looking to add ambiance to your home? Or perhaps both?
Gas or electric
A fireplace provides both ambiance and warmth in the second place. If you have a gas supply or are happy to install one you should opt for one. We recommend choosing a gas appliance. The flames are more realistic, and it is easy to control.
If you do not have a gas supply the other option is one of our exquisite electric appliances that offer a realistic flame effect and can even be used when no heat is required, the electric fireplaces are easy to install and to control.
Types of fireplaces
The type of appliance is one of the most important aspects to think about. Where do you want to place the fireplace? Do you have enough space, is it in the corner of the room or do you want to separate a space?
Our trimless appliances provide the look and feel of a real fire. Whether you are looking for a contemporary landscape model or would like something a little more traditional with a mantle, there is a solution for every situation. As the name already implies, you have a frontal view on the fire.
If you are looking to make a real statement, a corner fire may be the perfect choice. The highly efficient corner fires allow you to view the beautiful flames from different angles and are available in either left-sided or right-sided options.
Bring incredible ambience into your home with a stylish panoramic fireplace. These stunning fires make an amazing centerpiece in any home. The three sided windows allow an unrestricted view of the fire from all sides of the room at with the touch of a button. Choose from different sizes, available in both natural gas and LPG.
“Vibrant, artistic ambiences. The perfect solution for your house”: A fireplace is the perfect item to divide a room. Choose between a tunnel or a room divider. You can’t go wrong, whatever you choose.
Who says an efficient solution cannot be stylish at the same time? Get the best of both worlds with a tunnel or room divider that does it all. A room divider fireplace allows you to partition a room in a stylish way, allowing you to enjoy the cosy comfort of your fire from different sides, or even from different rooms.
Whilst tunnel fires are two sided appliances that allow you to enjoy the beautiful flames and warmth from two rooms at once! They are perfect for modern open plan homes and can be used to connect spaces, allowing you to see into adjoining rooms, connecting not just rooms, but people as well.
Freestanding appliances are compact, and very stylish gas appliances, suitable for even the smallest rooms. With their unique designs and playfull options is it the perfect appliance to gather around the fire.

Heat output of your fireplace
Only for gas fireplaces.
There could be a risk that you select an fireplace with either a too low or too high heat output. The bigger the room, the more heat output is required. In a smaller room you have to consider the minimum heat output. If the minimum is output is too high for the room you may find yourself using the fireplace only for a short amount of time.
You can use the thermostatic control function to easily control the appliance and warmth in your room.
Not only does the size of the room matter, insulation is also an important factor. If your house is very well insulated, you won’t necessarily require an appliance with a high heat output. The warmth cannot go anywhere and will stay in the room due to the insulation.
The chart below shows you the required heat capacity
A = a home with double glass, floor and wall isolation;
B = a home with double glass and reasonably well isolated (house from ± 1974 – 1980 or renovated, older properties)
C = a home with poor insulation
Customization of your fire
After you have chosen the fuel type and type of fireplace, you can check which customisation options you desire.
The way the flames dance in your new fireplace will depend in large on the burner bed, also known as the ‘fire bed’; the wellspring of ultimate warmth and comfort in your home.

The main advantage of a gas or electric appliance is its ease of use. No more fussing about with firelighters and wooden logs; simply turn on the fireplace and enjoy. You also do not need to wait around for the fire to die out before you get to go to bed. Simply turn off the fire and turn in for the night. Having a fireplace has never been easier!
