Having a fireplace in the bedroom is a trend that is quickly catching on in Sydney. It not only comes in handy when the temperatures drop during winter, it is great for setting the mood during a romantic evening with your partner. When shopping for fireplaces, consider the size of your bedroom and what sort of hearth would work in it. It does not make sense to have a huge fireplace that leaves your bedroom too hot to sleep in, even at the lowest setting.
A bedroom fireplace requires specific characteristics that may be less crucial in the rest of house. Other than size, you also have to look at efficiency and output. Make sure the air quality in your bedroom remains clean if you are using wood, and that the output is designed for a single room. Among the heaters available in the market, Lopi has quite a range of options that work in your master bedroom. Here are the some of the most popular ones.
