Crackling fire, dancing flames that spread cosy warmth... everything bathed in a soft light. A wood fire fireplace enriches every home, even for vast living landscapes where the boundaries between kitchen, dining area and retreat become blurred. Open-plan rooms are in vogue and where walls are missing, other things take centre stage.
Storage heaters and fireplaces become eye-catchers and function as elegant room dividers. The appliances either fulfil the primary desire for mood, ambience and quick warmth - in which case a fireplace is recommended - or primarily the long-lasting warmth of a storage heater. There are a variety of options, from the panorama fireplaces to corner fireplaces and tunnel heaters all the way to the swivel-mount fireplace:
Panorama fireplaces are visually very attractive as room dividers because they allow a clear view of the wood fire from three sides and let a lot of light come in through the 3-sided glazing. A Panorama-Kamin fireplace always looks light and graceful. In the model size 66/88 by BRUNNER, it can even be installed free-floating.
Tunnel devices by BRUNNER are available in different versions: as a storage heater, a fireplace, kit system or gas fireplace. They are popular because they divide the room without appearing too bulky. In addition, the double glazing allows you to enjoy the fire from two rooms at the same time. This makes it possible to enjoy pleasant hours in front of the fire on the couch just as much as at the dining table.
Corner devices are ideal as a decorative element for open-plan living spaces and are very well suited as room enclosures. BRUNNER corner units are available with revolving or sliding doors as well as large-size architecture fireplaces and also as a storage heater, fireplace, kit system or gas fireplace.
BRUNNER swivel-mount fireplaces provide a fire atmosphere from more than just one angle. They can be turned manually and by remote control at a 90 degree angle in the desired direction. They come in both the fireplace and tiled stove design.
GAS DEVICES, KIT SYSTEM DEVICES OR CUSTOM DEVICES
Whichever device you choose, whether a room divider fireplace or a stove, there are other selection criteria: Gas fireplaces - whether floating or low room dividers - are perfect for city flats because they operate conveniently at the touch of a button. There is no fuel to store and no ash to dispose of. On the other hand, the flame pattern of a gas fireplace is incredibly realistic and can hardly be distinguished from a wood fire.
Kit system devices have the advantage that they can be assembled quickly and inexpensively - similar to the prefabricated house principle. On the other hand, handcrafted systems can be adapted to individual tastes and living situations.
There are many things to consider when choosing the right stove system and also many options for illumination. Be sure to get advice from a specialist tradesman. You can find good stove construction companies on our homepage at Experience BRUNNER.
