The Traditional Fireplace

This type of fireplace typically features a brick or stone surround and a wooden mantel. Using wood or gas for fuel, it can be built into a wall or as a freestanding unit. The traditional fireplace can add a cozy and rustic feel to a room and can be customized with various finishes and materials to match the home's overall aesthetic.

The Contemporary Fireplace

Clean lines, minimal design, and modern materials; that's what you can expect with these types of modern fireplace designs. Builders usually make them with metal or glass, and they can suspend them from a wall or build them into said wall. As a bonus, you can choose how you want to fuel these fireplaces. You can fuel them with wood, gas, or electricity. Contemporary fireplaces also add that sleek and modern feel to a room and are a great way to add a bold design element to your space.

The Outdoor Fireplace

A great addition to a backyard or patio, your outdoor fireplace can provide that warmth and ambiance during chilly Nebraska winters. You can build them with many different materials, including brick, stone, or metal, and you can fuel them with wood or gas. Outdoor fireplaces can be a great way to extend the living space of a home and can be a great place to gather with friends and family.

If you're having a cookout, birthday celebration, or an anniversary, bundling up around a cozy fire outdoors is a great way to do just that.

The Bioethanol Fireplace

Bioethanol fireplaces are modern fireplace designs that are clean-burning and eco-friendly alternatives to traditional wood or gas fireplaces. They burn bioethanol fuel from plant-based materials and don't require a chimney or flue. Professionals can easily install these fireplaces in any room without renovating them. They can also be portable, making them ideal for renters or people with small apartments.
