Wall Gel Fireplaces
If you do not have a traditional fireplace in your home but are thinking about getting one, a wonderful alternative is a wall gel fireplace. Since many homes are not made with a fireplace or are not equipped to have one, they are safe, environmentally friendly options that can make a huge difference in your home’s overall ambience. Not only do they provide a beautiful focal point in a room and enhance a home’s look, they offer cozy warmth for those cold days and nights. Today there are tons of elegant gel fireplace styles available and they range drastically in size as well as price. The variety of models available gives you a large, versatile selection to choose from. There is a style for every home, and for every budget.
Gel fireplaces are used indoors or outdoors and work by using a certain kind of gel fuel that can safely burn flames without needing any kind of ventilation system. These gels typically burn very slowly making them easier to manage and safer for the environment, and they create fires that can last for a few hours. There are many types that are designed to stand alone, are built-in to coffee tables, or are Zen style tables, which are especially trendy and decorative.
The most popular is the wall fireplace, which can be mounted directly onto the wall virtually anywhere you’d like it. They often come with attractive wooden mantels and a screening kit for safety. Many of the wall mount styles have beautiful glass faces and come with tools that you need to care for the fire such as a fire snuffer. They are easy to maintain and in general are not nearly as messy as regular built-in fireplaces. Easy portability and ventless features make them very appealing, adding to their overall convenience.
A stunning gel fireplace for your wall that can bring both beauty and function to your home is the Real Flame Oak Stafford Gel Fuel Fireplace. Along with the lovely carved decorative mantel, it offers side doors that open to reveal four hidden adjustable shelves for extra storage. The shelves provide a great place to keep movies or media accessories. Made of solid pine, it is available in either an oak or mahogany finish for $547. The Real Flame Envision Wall Gel Burning Fireplace is a more contemporary model, available in a sharp black or crisp, clean white. It is made of stainless powder coated steel and mounts directly on the wall, adding a modern flair to any room in the house.
If you need one that will fit in a tighter living space such as a small townhome or apartment, the Real Flame Petite Visionary Gel Fuel Fireplace is an efficient, versatile model that is classically beautiful and easily warms up small areas. Affordably priced at $275, it includes a screen kit, wood mantel, and a hand-painted cast concrete log. Keep in mind that environmentally safe gel fuels need to be purchased separately for any of these wall gel fireplaces. Compare these models and choose one that suits your home’s style as well as available space. Also be sure to take into account all of the dimensions before making a purchase.
