Stone is a great material to use for long lasting quality and style. What kind of material should you use is the question you will ask? A rustic limestone fireplace is sleek and modern looking.

Tile is an option for the decorative fireplace that you want to design for that special room to add a touch of glamour to your living space.

Do you want a gas fireplace that does not use wood fuel? You will have to ask where will the source of natural gas come from? Do you already have a line in your home or will you have to add it. You will have to seek suppliers in your area that know how to build and connect the fireplace properly. Some gas designs have logs that look like they burn and others have fire rocks. Some gas fireplaces need a tank if you do not have a supplier in the area you live. The tank can be place outside.

An electric fireplace needs no major venting source or firewood for fuel. It has its good for apartments or condos that do not have the right facilities for other types of fireplaces. There are complete mantel kits that you plug in and they look like a real fire place. It is a great supplemental heat source for your home or apartment and adds charm to any room.
