I needed to purchase a radiator for my old beat-up car, so my good friend recommended Trade Radiators because he says that their quality is fantastic. At first, I was skeptical because my friend always recommends places that don’t really satisfy me, but Trade Radiators defiantly lives up to their reputation.

Trade Radiators is a UK based company that sells a lot of products such as radiators. What I like about this company is the fact that they are very experienced in the radiator industry, in fact, I believe that they have over 10 years. I really like that they are experienced because it gives me the peace of mind in knowing that I am purchasing a radiator from a reliable source. In addition, the have been dedicated in providing their customers with cost effective products that are of the utmost highest quality, and nowadays it is very difficult to find a place that offers the best of both worlds: quality and affordability.

I also love that they carry many types of radiators including: trade radiators, column radiators, designer radiators, radiator accessories and converters. In addition, they carry a wide variety of accessories for the radiators. Another thing that I love about Trade Radiators is the fact that they have two ways to shop: you can go online to their website or you can go to their location in the UK. This is great because you can purchase things from locations outside the UK. I also love how helpful the staff is; they were able to answer some questions I had pertaining to my purchase and they don’t pressure you into buying something you don’t want. In addition, they really help recommend the best radiator for you. And finally, they have a wonderful and very helpful customer service that you can call to ask questions or to help resolve a concern that you may have.

Trade Radiators doesn’t have the elegantly decorated showrooms because, instead, they prefer to talk to the manufactures directly. This is so they can save money on purchasing the radiator, so that the client can reap the benefits and be able to have quality and quantity. In other words, at Trade Radiators you will be able to find the lowest prices possible. I defiantly would recommend Trade Radiator to anyone looking to purchase a high quality but low cost radiator. I promise you that their quality is fantastic.

FilioFocus-free-standing-fireplace-750164One of the most visionary and easiest ways to improve the value of a home and bring additional attention and personalization to it is to invest in one of the many luxury fireplaces designs that are available.  Since the inception of the invention of fire, the fireplace has been an important component of family life beginning with sheer survival to distinguishing one’s self in terms of style and decor.  Certainly, there are many basic elements that will always be present in terms of benefits, yet the choice amongst luxury fireplaces can go a long way in terms of the representation of self.
There are many topics to consider within this overall decision.  Is the unit going to be an indoor or outdoor accessory?  What type of material and design will be used?  For example, one could select a gas fireplace, a more traditional wood fireplace, or even an electrical unit.  Certainly, functionality will be important to this overall choice in terms of ventilation requirements, the availability of a needed natural material, and the decided attention to style that one wishes to represent.  In simpler terms, the overall choice has to not only look good but be workable.  Or, in a reverse light, style is as important as substance.

Whatever the order of rationale, many people consider both of these goals to be best met by choosing amongst many ceramic, natural stone, or porcelain luxury fireplaces.  One can enjoy the rustic simplicity of the most elemental needs of a fireplace–warmth and heat–in a natural setting of earthy materials.  Yet, a choice of sandstone, limestone, field stone, or especially marble can display a sheer elegance that cannot really be expressed or personalized in any other way.  The sense of hearkening back to earlier times is mixed together with a more fashionable and trendy sleek look that can be both traditional and modern in a simultaneous manner.

The choice of these materials will certainly be influenced by the location and proximity of one’s home but there really are no “wrong” decisions that can occur.  In the final analysis, selecting amongst these natural material settings is going to be a tremendous “win” for the homeowner in almost any manner.  And, these are very popular choices in the effort to regenerate the sense of family and community within one’s home as well as to increase the overall market value.

augusta_fireplaceA fireplace in the home should serve as more than just a functional heating source. It should also be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and become the favorite place in the room where the family wishes to congregate. Whether it is built of ceramic, natural stone, or encased in an elegant, porcelain luxury fireplace design, its uniqueness should speak to anyone who has the pleasure to sit beside it. The common wood burning fireplace has been around forever it seems, and was  multifunctional, because large iron pots held stews and soups to be cooked in it, clothing was dried in front of it and of course it was the only source of heat at that time, But today, choices abound with choices of burning gas, wood, or electric, and choosing between free standing fireplaces, table models, or enclosing an existing one in durable, yet attractive man made materials.
Historically, fireplaces were mainly constructed of brick or rock, and situated in the center of the home. These days, with the durability and affordability of better products such as ceramic tile or porcelain for instance, one can have a fireplace in any room they so choose. Additionally, anyone can enjoy the freedom of choosing what type of luxury fireplace design they prefer. Once the design has been chosen, the next step is obtaining the materials if it is to be installed as a home project. Perhaps you would rather build your own fireplace by hand. If so, be sure to have the vendor recommend the safest ways to do so. He will share photos, design ideas, and tips to assist you in your new project.

Ceramic tile in any color looks stunning when surrounding an existing fireplace and makes a room appear much larger. To install, follow the directions of the manufacturer or hire someone with experience in painted or smooth ceramic tile design. Natural stone is another magnificent material that is long lasting and reminiscent of the craftsman style homes of a century ago. One of the most popular designs is the porcelain luxury fireplaces materials. Porcelain adds an exquisite look of wealth and class to any fireplace whether it be free standing or one that is built in. No matter which style you choose, make it your very own.

The Choice Between the Gas and Electric Fireplace

Install-a-Gas-Fireplace-14-ssIf you are thinking about installing a fireplace in your home you have some serious decisions to make. Most people install either a Gas or electric fireplace. Both a Gas and electric fireplace would add a wonderful charm to your home, however they both work in different situations. Both gas and electric will put out heat, can be installed in an existing fireplace and have simply gorgeous encasing options.
There are differences however. The most obvious being that one runs on gas and the other on electricity. If you are installing an electric fireplace you will need to ensure that there is a power outlet nearby. For a gas fireplace you will need to ensure you have access to the gas line. When it comes to heat these do vary. A gas fireplace is going to have better heat output than an electric fireplace. While the electric fireplace does put out heat, it quite simply isn’t the same amount. So, if you are going to be using the fireplace as a major heat source, get a gas fireplace.

The gas fireplace will need a flue. So, in most cases a gas fireplace is installed in an existing chimney. A gas fireplace has very real looking logs. The temperature controls are simple, so if you want to turn it up or down it can be done at the touch of a button. A gas fireplace is a terrific option if you already have something in your home that runs off gas and you have an existing fireplace.

The electric fireplace is a wonderful idea if you don’t have an existing fireplace. You can take an electric fireplace and put it pretty much anywhere you want to. You can put it upstairs, downstairs, in an outside wall or an inside one. Where you put an electric fireplace is completely up to you. The electric fireplace by far is the most universal, if not the warmest. The electric fireplace is the better choice if you do not have an existing fireplace, do not have gas already in your home or simply don’t need the extra heat that comes from a gas fireplace. Both the Gas and electric fireplace are beautiful and will be a terrific addition to your home, no matter which one you opt for.

Gas and Electric Fireplace Designs: Which one is Right for You?

Gas_Fireplace_page003img001Gas and electric fireplace designs are both fabulous choices for homes. They bring a certain charm and elegance to a home and the fact that they don’t burn wood makes them far more convenient than their wood burning counterpart. Gas and electric fireplaces also do not make a mess. Clean up and maintenance is quite simple. Both types of fireplaces have gorgeous designs that add a wonderful addition to any home.
There are some differences between the Gas and electric fireplaces however. The gas fireplace will likely put out more heat. So, if you want to really use this for heating and not just a pretty fireplace to look at, you will likely want a gas fireplace. Also, a gas fireplace needs a flue, so typically a gas fireplace is inserted into an existing fireplace. The gas fireplace is made to look just like a wood burning fireplace and the logs that go in it look real. Unless someone looks closely they may not even realize the fireplace isn’t a wood burning one. Gas is simple to use and efficient. You may have a simple control to turn up or down the flames and heat. Gas is a terrific choice for someone looking for heat as well as ambiance.

The electric fireplace is popular because it can go anywhere. You can put one of these in an inside wall, upstairs, downstairs, wherever you want. You need to be sure it meets code regulations of course for fire retardancy, but where an electric fireplace can go is limitless. The electric fireplace does give heat, just not as much as a gas fireplace. The electric fireplace doesn’t need a flue so that makes this fireplace incredibly universal. The look is similar to that of a gas or wood burning fireplace and the logs for an electric fireplace also look quite real.

When it comes to which type of fireplace you want to choose it will really depend on how much heat you want to get out of it, and if you have an existing fireplace to put a gas fireplace into. Both Gas and electric fireplace designs will heat, are absolutely beautiful and will light up any home. Regardless of which type you purchase the fireplace will still become a focal point in your home. These are a terrific investment in your home no matter which you choose.

esceaThe Modern Fireplace has come a long way from the ancient fire pits that were built in the ground in the center of a primitive dwelling. The foundation for the Modern Fireplace goes back to CountRumford in the late seventeen hundreds with his design of the tall shallow firebox. Today the fireplace is more popular than ever and the choices become more varied each year. In fact, most people consider this feature as one of the most requested when looking to purchase a new home. It has not lost it’s appeal and increases the value in the purchase of the home.

Home owners look for energy and cost savings as well as appearances.  They are no longer limited to the traditional brick fireplace when shopping for their home and fireplace. In fact, it’s become quite simple to add one to a dream home with out a fireplace. The Modern Fireplace can be gas or electric. You can order them online and could even be installed by the homeowner without much difficulty. Many companies offer the opportunity to design a unique one of a kind masterpiece with all the choices in options available.

One of my favorite Modern Fireplace in design and flair is the Escea 5000 Outdoor Fireplace. This one was chosen to be the fireplace in the American Home for 2009 at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas. This company offers both indoor and outdoor designs with a simple yet elegant style. Many home owners are intrigued with the idea of an outdoor space. Many dream of updating their simple outdoor kitchen consisting of grill and lawn chair to an elegant dining area and outdoor fireplace.

People still love to congregate and are drawn to the hearth of the home. The fire is both visually and emotionally soothing. This is the place where confidences are shared and memories made. Take a step. Whether you chose a simple modern day outside fire pit or one of the prize winning designs like the Escea 5000 only matters if you are the one liking it. Don’t procrastinate. Start with what you can afford this year. You can always trade up later if you think you might need to. In the meantime you can star the first project today!

Outodoor fireplace: the Designs are Quite Beautiful

outdoor_fireplace_kitsLast year my husband and I purchased our new home.  This spring we are making plans to have the back yard landscaping completed and getting a large patio deck built.

We would like to have a section of the patio with a nice seating area, a low table and perhaps a nice large Outodoor fireplace off to the side.  We live in a climate where it can get rather chilly on a summer evening and having a fire to sit around will be cozy and inviting.

We have looked at several of the fireplaces designed for the patio and they are quite beautiful.

At the end we have choosen the fireplace shown in the picture: very nice isn’it?

Gas And Electric Fireplace Designs

3Ever since man first discovered that fire was a good source of heat he has been ever upgrading it’s usefulness. Imaginative minds have always wanted to take this basic tool and make it not only more economical but also appealing to the senses. For centuries, the fireplace was the focal point of family life. It provided necessary warmth for survival, a source for cooking, and light. As the search continued for more efficient ways of heating, various designs were experimented with.

Wood burning stoves made from cast iron began making their way into homes with the advent of the industrial revolution. This allowed for a more centralized heat source. Manufacturers created their own unique artwork and amenities that have made their products collector’s items today. When gas and electricity came along the fireplace was quickly retooled to take advantage of the new resources. Unlike the mundane presence of today’s furnaces (that are always hidden from view), gas or electric fireplaces still know how to show-case their surroundings.

The choices that are available these days are almost endless. There are units that can be wall mounted, placed in a corner or inserted into an existing fireplace, and unlike the traditional wood burner there is no need of a flue for venting.  Styles range from polished wood cases that boast intricate carvings to free standing replicas of an eighteenth century pot-belly stove. With the use of modern technology they can be thermostatically controlled to create the right mood by adjusting the flame or even simulating the glow of embers and the sound of crackling noises.

Accessories for the fireplace can give it a personality worthy of it’s surroundings; even if it is not burning real wood. Dress it up with such items as brass andirons and maybe a log bucket or rack as well as fireplace tools for authenticity. Mantles can be decorated with steamers or candelabras. Some people use them as a place to display a special trophy or an heirloom.

Whatever the design plan may be, keep in mind that certain requirements need to be met. Natural gas or propane fireplaces must have access to those fuels. Electric units need to have an outlet close by. There may be the need for some sort of fire retardant material around the heat source if it is required by local codes. Certain cleaners might have to be purchased to protect glass, stone, brick or stainable metal surfaces. Periodic cleaning and scheduled maintenance will assure many years of enjoyment.

Having a gas or electric fireplace not only brings beauty and serenity into a room but it also increases the value of a home. The initial cost may be no more than a few hundred dollars but it will be an investment that is returned many times over on those cold winter nights that lie ahead.
