Most modern homes today tend to have a gas fireplace that not only adds warmth to the room, it brings a unique visual contrast as well. Fire has a natural tendency to attract our gaze and grab our attention no matter where they are set, no wonder the open real flame fires are so popular.
Most linear gas fireplaces come with a glass front that helps in more ways than one. But from a purely aesthetic perspective, they blend in perfectly with a modern setting as glass is a material that is currently being used extensively in home design. Juliet balconies and glass balustrades along with shelving and even staicase stringers are making great use of this versatile building material.
Some people like a traditional and luxurious house that is warm and inviting, others tend to favour a modern sleek and clean appearance that tends to lean towards the minimalist look. Whatever the case, there are a few basic design traits that both camps agree on. A beautiful, glowing fireplace, with its dancing flames is definitely one of those sought after features that most wish to incorporate in their home.
Ever since man has been able to create fire, we have used it as a life sustaining medium. From caves to warm and cook with, to todays use of heating or for simply the feel good factor it provides us with.
Studies have shown that a person who feels cold will feel warmer just by watching a television or a computer screen with an open fire screen saver. Clearly this will not raise the actual temperature of a room, but it will give a cold person a warming sense of wellbeing.
It makes perfect sense to compliment and enhance your existing fire place with either a glass back drop or a surround. The glass surround can also prevent the walls from discolouring from the heat too and are so simple to keep clean.
