Fireplaces are back in fashion in both casual and formal living areas as buyers of new homes, apartments, warehouses and units are no longer content with just ducted or other forms of space heating. They are wanting the ambience , the warmth and the attraction of an open fire and flickering flames.
There is a well-difined trend in people's choice of fireplaces as a lifestyle statemnet.
The dominance of recreating and restoring Victorian and Federation homes has given way to the more simple styling of Art Deco and Californian Bungalows plus a big demand for the contemporary minimalist look.
A y ounger generation has now moved into the suburban homes of the 50's and 60's and are replacing the old gas space heaters with fan-forced gas fireplaces.
In period homes the fireplaces in sitting and dining room - and some bedrooms - are being updated to include the ambience and appeal of a traditional open gas fire. Whereas for larger family living areas towards the back of the house, glass fronted, fan forced fireplaces are the main choice to suit contemporary or minimalist interior design. These units are also chosen for their ability to heat larger areas and their cost efficiency.
