A whitewashed fireplace is a cool idea for almost any space, from rustic and traditional to shabby chic and girlish one. Dip into the gallery below to get some inspiration!
The fireplaces featured below offer more than just a pretty image. Most have built-in heaters and blowers to circulate heat in a room. Some use state-of-the-art infrared heat, which is a less drying, more efficient heating system. And they come with a remote so you can control the heat, the flame or both from anywhere in the room.
Depending on the model purchased, the insert will either fit flush with the fireplace face brick or protrude onto the hearth. The protruding design is more efficient since it provides additional radiant heat from the exposed top and sides. The National Fire Protection Association requires that fireplace inserts be installed with a direct connection between the insert exhaust outlet and nearest section of flue liner. This allows smoke and gases faster passage and less time to condense in the flue and form hazardous creosote.
