Why a Freestanding Fireplace is a Must-Have

A freestanding fireplace should be a great addition to any home, which is why it is important to consider all freestanding options before investing in a product. With the advancements in the fire and gas industry, clients have numerous options available – these include open and closed fireplaces, built-in or freestanding fireplaces, gas or wood-burning fireplaces, and more.

Many homeowners still prefer a traditional, open fireplace to a closed combustion fireplace because of the comfort it offers. When picturing a fireplace, the image that appears in most people’s minds is one of logs burning and crackling, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere, and with the wide range of products available at Fire and Gas Lifestyles, we can make this cosy dream a reality!
