Save electricity and heat your home with gas stoves, wood, steam, bioethanol, pellets. Evocative, romantic, comfortable and warm. Fireplaces inspire home warmth and emit it. Do you think about putting one? There are many designs and options. Get inspired by these living rooms with fireplaces.
HOW TO INTEGRATE THE FIREPLACE IN THE LIVING ROOM
There are many ways to get heat in your home, so you have to know and choose a heating system that is suitable for your needs. The brick chimneys have the advantage that they are made to measure, but it is not recommended that they exceed one meter in width to be safe and efficient.
Don’t let the idea of integrating the fireplace and television into the living room torment you. A good idea is to place an extra-flat screen on the mouthpiece, as long as it is not too high so that it does not force us to keep our eyes in an uncomfortable position. Keep in mind that the television has to be placed at eye level, about 60 cm from the ground, so you will probably have to place the appliance on a shelf or piece of furniture, on one side of the stove.
WOOD OR PELLET FIREPLACE
Sustainability is imposed on our planet, so we have to look for alternative solutions to get warm with very small CO2 emissions. This is the case of wood and forest biomass, both are natural materials with high energy power, although the latter generate a very efficient and more stable heat, which is why they have become the first option in colder regions, as they are more profitable. . The briquettes made of sawdust, which form the pellet, do not take up much storage space, so pellet fireplaces are a good idea for small houses.
However, wood-burning fireplaces with an oven score points because they are a 2×1 alternative, emitting heat and allowing cooking at the same time. Can you imagine a cold winter day warming your hands while a delicious aroma of sponge cake comes out of the fireplace? Well, it is a very comforting sensation, but this stove option is convenient to be located in kitchens or in the dining area so that the smell of food does not flood the rest of the house.
GAS, BIOETHANOL OR STEAM FIREPLACE
Heating an environment to make it more welcoming is the main objective to prepare the house for low temperatures. The gas fireplaces incorporate burners inside and have very modern designs. They are very safe and especially resistant models and have a plus: you can control the intensity of the temperature with the flame.
Bioethanol fireplaces need to be in open places, with more than 10 m2, and they have to be fed with renewable fuel from time to time, two or three liters every five hours, so it is a detail to take into account. Its energy power compensates that of a large radiator, so it can be much cheaper to use. Other great advantages are that they are installed very easily and do not need a smoke extractor, because it does not give off any odor.
In addition, steam chimneys optimize combustion and, above all, have a very powerful aesthetic. We have seen them in celebrity homes , such as the mansion owned by Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky in Malibu, or the family villa sold by Sara Carbonero and Iker Casillas. in many ….
Its added value in the world of interior design is undeniable. Electric fireplaces are good allies to decorate a living room, but stoves are also capable of optimizing space, improving the distribution of a room or separating environments. Corner fireplaces are very practical to decorate, because they save space, they heat various areas of the house if they are well channeled and they are very clean. And if you don’t have a smoke outlet at home, don’t worry, because you can install a nice molding or a led fireplace, which does not emit heat, but perfectly imitates the movement of the fire flame.
