Finding the perfect fireplace for your home


Whether it was our record-breaking July rainfall, cold nights or grey cloudy days, winter this year just seemed to go on forever. Though spring is finally starting to show itself, Perth is still warming up. There are still plenty of crisp mornings and nights left – so why put up with the cold? At Subiaco Restoration, we’ve got everything you need to keep you and your home toasty and warm. Our range of fireplaces can help bring new life into indoor and outdoor living areas. So, what type of fireplace will work best for you? We’ve laid out some options below.

Wood Fireplaces

When it comes to a roaring fire, you can’t look past the humble wood fireplace. Located underneath a hearth, they add plenty of character and charm. You will need to make sure you have sufficient ventilation as well as a supply of quality wood.

Freestanding wood fireplaces are also a popular option to add a classic feel to any home. Because you don’t require an existing fireplace structure to install your fireplace, freestanding fireplaces offer a practical choice. Efficient and cost-effective, they help to create serious warmth for you and your family.

Electric Fireplaces

There are many benefits to choosing an electric fireplace for your home. These include fast warmth (no waiting for the wood to heat up), superior temperature control, efficient energy use, increased safety, and no harmful by-products (such as soot or ash).

Subiaco Restoration has a large range of electric indoor fireplaces for you to choose from. As the trusted name in electric fireplaces Perth, our team can help you make the right choice for your space.

Gas Fireplaces

Like electric fireplaces, gas fireplaces come with plenty of benefits. You can turn them on with the flick of a switch and enjoy instant warmth when you need it most. They’re very cost-effective to run and offer plenty of flexibility. Gas fireplaces also offer that real-life feel of a flickering flame.

With modern designs available to suit any home design, the gas fireplace installation in Perth is a highly popular choice.

Bioethanol Fireplaces

Bioethanol fireplaces might sound a little complicated and technical, but they’re  very simple to use. These types of fireplaces use bioethanol as a fuel source, which is clean-burning and doesn’t produce nasty gases or waste products. It’s a renewable energy source, too, so there’s plenty to feel good about! They work like a candle – you simply light the fuel in the burner container with a long lighter.

With no smoke, no smell and a range of sleek design options to choose from, bioethanol fireplaces are quickly gaining interest.

Outdoor Fireplaces

Last, but definitely not least, is the outdoor fireplace. They have the ability to help you create a true year-round alfresco space, even on chilly winter nights. Go for a focal point with an outdoor fire pit that your guests can gather around, or choose a classic outdoor fireplace with a chimney. Feeling inspired?
