Fireplaces have a natural tendency to attract our gaze and stand out as the ‘show stoppers’ no matter where they are set. Most linear gas fireplaces come with a glass front that helps in more ways than just one. But from a purely aesthetic viewpoint, they blend in perfectly with a modern setting as glass is an element that is currently being used extensively in home design.

You do want your fireplace to offer an incandescent and warm spot where you can nicely tuck inside a warm blanket on a cold day as you sip your favorite beverage. Yet, the most important aspect of a fireplace design is to ensure that these flames do not spread to the remainder of the house! A glass front or well placed glass doors ensure that there are no embers or sparks that accidentally fly out of the fireplace. More than just the aesthetics, it is the safety that fireplaces with glass doors offer, which make them simply a must have.

Save Up On Energy
Just like an open window in the winter can cause your heating bills to go up drastically, similarly an open fireplace consumes a lot more energy to heat up the surrounding space. A closed design with glass doors helps in improving energy efficiency and cuts down on consumption of gas or wooden logs considerably. Fireplace glass doors and glass fronts come in a variety of forms and you can also opt for designs that give you a 360 degree view of the flames while still offering complete safety and peace of mind.
