Most people shopping for modern fireplaces are doing so simply because of the way they look. You hardly need any other art or significant décor pieces in a room when you have one of these stylish and beneficial pieces on display. However, just because they are beautiful does not mean there are no other reasons to purchase them, too. If you are browsing our selection at Soothing Company, but still not sure if you are ready to buy one, you might be interested to know about the great benefits that they offer.


Focal Point

You may know that you are shopping for a focal point, but are you aware of how important it is for a room to have one? Without a focal point you walk in a room and your eyes scan the area until something captures their attention, so they can come to rest. You may not know it but the longer this takes, the more your stress level can increase. A modern fireplace will instantly grab your attention, so you can relax.



Every day, an increasing number of people are becoming aware and disturbed by the negative effects associated with burning wood. Here at Soothing Company, we have electric, gel, and bio fuel fireplaces. These are all considered environmentally-friendly options. This is a fire you can feel good about enjoying.


No Smoke

Obviously, the fact that these ventless fireplaces create no smoke is good for the environment. However, this also makes them a safer option for your health. Wood-burning fires emit cancer-causing agents in the air, and they are responsible for allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, and other health concerns. Modern fireplaces do not release toxins into the air, nor do they leach oxygen from the space. This makes them safe to use in any home without concern for immediate and long-term health effects.


No Mess

One of the biggest advantages to modern fireplaces is that they are virtually maintenance-free. Why would anyone want to maintain a woodpile and scoop soot all the time when there is an easier option? If you think you will miss curling up in front of the fire in your favorite chair with a good book, check out one of our modern floor fireplaces. Our Buschbeck Boston Bio Ethanol Fireplace should keep your feet nice and warm.


Place Anywhere

Modern fireplaces have a “goes anywhere” attitude. They are available in floor, tabletop, and wall varieties, so there is one perfect for every room in your home. Some are ideal for indoor and outdoor use, so you can easily carry it to the patio to enjoy on a cool evening. Our Sparro Indoor/Outdoor Tabletop Ethanol Fireplace is a great example, and it is priced so low that it is perfect to give as a gift, too!
