Choosing the right Gas Fire Basket

When you install a stylish gas fire basket you’ll instantly create a warm, welcoming atmosphere inside your home. Convenient to use and maintain, the chilliest of days can be warmed at the touch of a button without compromising on the beautiful appearance of a real fuel fire. From traditional styles that add a cosy charm within a rustic cottage to the minimalist elegance of modern contemporary design, there is a gas fire basket to complement every home.

Choosing a Gas Fire Basket

Gas fire baskets are available in a choice of convenient widths but before selecting one it’s important to find the correct size of your hearth. Although the majority of fire baskets are relatively low, first measure the height of the space followed by the depth. Measure the width of the hearth at the front of the opening and at the rear then be guided by the narrowest measurement to ensure your favourite gas fire basket will easily fit inside the recess. Styles with additional, ornamental fenders or bowed fronts might need extra space. Affordable gas fire baskets are handcrafted using high-quality, durable materials. With such an extensive range of beautiful, stylish designs to choose from, a gas fire basket is an affordable investment you’ll want to admire for years to come.

Finding the right Style

The inviting warmth of a traditional open fireplace inevitably becomes the focal point of any room. Gas fire baskets are available in a choice of finishes that include brass, polished steel and cast iron to complement every design. Choosing a style that reflects the d├ęcor and existing features of your room will instantly create the perfect ambience. Styles influenced by the Regency era such as the Stovax Ascot or Rochester which both have decorative fronts will enhance the fine elegance of any room with ornate windows, cornices or antique furniture. The stylish simplicity of gas fire baskets with straight fronts such as the Art Deco or Amhurst provide just the right amount of subtle decoration for modern homes that favour a minimalist design. The Stovax Milan in a beautiful polished steel will add a unique style to homes with a contemporary originality. Open hearths with rustic stones, antique tiles or timbers are perfect for styles such as the Cromwell or Spanish with their open, traditional baskets which are available in black matt cast iron.

The Advantages of a Gas Fire Basket

The unrivalled charm of a traditional open fireplace is further enhanced when using the convenience of a gas fire basket. Realistic fuel beds of driftwood, coal or logs are virtually indistinguishable from the authentic materials providing comforting warmth and style without the hard work of maintaining a real fire. In areas where there are restrictions on the burning of fossil fuels you can still enjoy the beauty of a traditional, open hearth by installing a gas fire basket. Gas is a clean, efficient and reliable fuel that’s also cost-effective to use when compared to electricity or fossil fuels. On cold winter evenings, a gas fire basket provides instant heat exactly when you need it most. And with remote control facilities you don’t even have to move from your cosy sofa to adjust the temperature.
