When you are installing Flamerite Fires in your home you will want to choose a fireplace design which incorporates seamlessly with the rest of your decor. The fireplace is often the heart of the home where people tend to congregate. If the fireplace looks out of place it can throw off the harmony of the entire room and become an irritating eye-sore. However, if you find a fireplace which complements your design it will make your interiors look even more elegant and luxurious.

There are thousands of different fireplace products available for your home, which can make choosing the right fireplace for your home seem like a daunting task. Here are some questions to ask yourself which will help you narrow down the type and style of Flamerite fires to meet your needs:

What is the purpose of the mantle around the fireplace?

What are your intentions for the mantle which will be located around the fireplace? Some Flamerite fires will have a large fireplace mantle which can be used as a display area for sculptures, family photos and other decorations. However, other Flamerite fires have slim and sleek mantle designs which are meant to blend into the wall rather than hold decorations.

What material are you looking for?

Fireplace mantles can be made of many different materials and each will evoke a different mood within your home decor. Traditional materials are wood, concrete and stone. However, there are also other options such as brick, timber and much more.

What is the scale of the fireplace?

Another thing to consider before shopping for Flamerite fires is the scale of your fireplace. If you are placing the fireplace in a huge room, a small mantle will look out of place and will not command the right amount of attention to balance the rest of the decor. Something large and imposing will look better in a large space and something sleek and small will complement a more compact room.

Have you considered an unconventional style of fireplace?

These days when you are choosing Flamerite fires you are not limited to the traditional “against the wall” chimney style fireplaces. Since electric fireplaces do not require pipe-work, chimneys or flues they can be installed in a variety of interesting ways. For example, you could create a see-thru fireplace in a wall which is open to two opposing rooms. You could also install a modern hole-in-the-wall fireplace which looks sleek and futuristic and does not take up as much room.

These are just a few things to consider before choosing the style of Flamerite fires you will install in your home. Be sure to take your time and make sure that you are selecting the right fireplace for your decor.
