Fireplaces for apartments now exist, thanks to the new breed of clean-burning, portable "faux" fireplaces available to home dwellers of every type. Whether you live in a large home or a rented flat, you can enjoy a fireplace of your very own. You can even move it from room to room until you're satisfied with its placement!

In fact, one of the biggest benefits of portable fireplaces is that you can change its location the way you'd change the placement of the living room furniture for variety's sake. Portable fireplaces are made in a variety of sizes and styles to suit your tastes. Choose among freestanding wall fireplaces, or "corner fireplaces" that fit where two walls join. This is a great option for people who have limited floor and wall space, and must make the most of those corners and odd available spaces.

Fireplaces for Small Spaces

Ventless fireplaces that use clean-burning, alcohol-based fuel are ideal for apartments and small, unvented spaces. Traditional fireplaces depend on vents that supply a steady supply of oxygen to the flames, in turn allowing smoke and soot to escape. Without these vents, we would quickly succumb to smoke inhalation. However, today's new fireplaces don't rely on ancient fire-burning technology for their flame, instead using a sophisticated, specially developed fuel blend that burns clean, leaving only a water vapor behind.

Another convenience of having a portable fireplace is that, unlike a traditional fireplace, you don't have to leave it behind when you move. Instead, you can pack up your ventless fireplace and stick it right in the moving truck along with all your other belongings.
