Fireplace Styles

A fireplace is a focal point in any residential or commercial properties. There are so many challenges now days with efficiency, green energy, design and client expectations. There are numerous brands on the market, which has two main groups: One group using the same make of burner and control unit and the difference is only the metal work used to in house the fire burner unit and controls. The other group is a group of small enterprises sourcing from China.  We are working now on a database of all types of fireplace solutions and listing the current models of reliable fires -from the first group of manufacturers- on the market. In the meantime, please see below a few examples of fireplaces by design category.

Traditional Fireplaces

Traditional homes are both charmingly elegant and warmly welcoming, and the same can be said of their focal point feature: the fireplace. We can offer standard and bespoke solutions, wide range of design  from mantelpieces to combinations. If energy efficiency is a key in the project, we can offer a traditional look with room – sealed appliances. There is no limit on design, as we can manufacture and source rare, specific stones, marbles even for the quirkiest fire surround ideas. We are experts of all fireplace types, from “plug and play” instant fluless models (bio ethanol or electric) to conventional and balanced flue gas and solid fuel fires and flue systems. From planning till the installation, all from one place. A complete in-house one stop fireplace solutions. 

Minimalist Fireplaces

Our modern, contemporary  fireplaces create a sophisticated ambience with their clean lines, endless design possibilities for conventional, balanced flue or flueless options. They’re the perfect focal point, generating a warm, cosy atmosphere while adding a striking architectural element to any space. We are designing, manufacturing our bespoke minimalist fires in-house. We also offer standard solutions from major manufacturers we are working directly.  We can offer all types of open effect, glass fronted, gas, electric, solid fuel or bio-ethanol fuel solutions for your project.

Outdoor Fireplaces

The exciting thing about outdoor fireplaces is the diversity of design available to you. 

Working with Urban Fires – The leading outdoor fireplace distributor and manufacturer, we can fulfil all design requirements. From standard and bespoke outdoor gas, solid fuel or bio ethanol solutions. Fireplace, firepit or firetable options.

Outdoor Heaters

We can offer smart heating solutions (electric and gas) which can provide directional heat with energy saving high tech infrared and ceramic technology. With Bromic heating solutions we offer the only non or low glow infrared heaters which can be efficient in the windy, UK climate.

“Staycations” achieved popularity in the US during the financial crisis and in the UK during the recession. Now with the weak pound made overseas holidays too expensive, let the popularity of bi-folding doors, “cube” garden rooms boom again.
