Wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits are charming and nostalgic, and there’s nothing better for making S’mores with the family, but if you’re looking to minimize maintenance and add sleek finishes and stylish designs, modern gas and electric fireplaces are functional decor pieces that can cut back on your heating bill — and don’t require expensive built-in chimneys. They’re extremely portable, and you can warm living spaces in style with an infrared fireplace that’s low-energy, or highlight indoor/outdoor transition areas like pool decks, patios, or sunrooms with modern gas burners behind glass displays. With every style design from rustic to ultra-chic available, it’s just a matter of selecting the right size and style for your budget, and you’ll have cozy warmth and flickering fire — or an LED approximation — keeping you comfy all year.
