And that is the subject of today's post. Do we run a gas line for a fireplace? Even if we go electric fireplace route, do we really need to spend a few hundred dollars on one? What say ye about having a fireplace? Do you love yours? Does it just sit there and let you vignette around it? Corner, not corner?
Massive theatre screen is rather restrictive in this venture, i think even a corner fireplace will be in the way when that puppy's down...but S wants to have the tv in the corner so the bar area can view it easily. Gah. So should tv and fireplace be in the same spot (corner) or compete with one another (but ultimately be filling a big wall of emptiness with something pretty.)
Here's what i like...an on the wall route, rather modern, allowing for screen to come down easily, but when screen is up it's pretty. CSN never ceases to amaze me...these are from CSNfireplaces.com. Who knew?
A corner version!
This is the one we may go for, from heater-store.com. It's gas, which means "real fire" and it's $550. That is not a bad price at all, but i am stuck on the "do we really need it" part. Would you do it?
So, what say ye? I'd love to know where you stand!
