A cozy fireplace! As the weather gets colder and snow blankets the lawn, there’s nothing I like better than curling up with a book by a roaring fire. The sound and smell of a wood-burning fireplace is ideal, but if that’s not feasible in your home… there are some great options! Two nice alternatives to a wood fireplace… electric and gel fuel.

It plugs into a standard wall outlet, and has a realistic flickering flame effect.

Another alternative to a wood-burning fireplace is the use of gel fuel. These fireplaces are often more contemporary and a fun addition to any room. The Insight Gel Fuel Fireplace in White by Real Flame is a fun conversation piece. It can be put anywhere in any space and the flame can be viewed from both sides. It burns Real Flame pour gel fuel and each fill burns between two and three hours.
