Maintaining the aesthetics of a wood burning fireplace

I feel like the cultural collective has decided against our normal sense of aesthetics in recent years.

While there was a distinct cleanliness to the indoor fashions of the 2000s, something happened as my associate and I moved towards the 2010s that greatly impacted our interest in olde timey wares.

Suddenly, new design was less modern, & more primitive. There have been so many trendy throwbacks to steampunk, farmhouses, & turn of the century designs that it can be head spinning. I feel that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you value things being made the way they used to, then for instance; I’ve constantly been seriously opposed to owning & operating a fake gas fireplace. I think that the narrowwall models of fireplaces which started coming out in the late 90s & early 2000s are hideous atrocities. They produce plenty of heat, sure, however they don’t trick the eye into believing that there is a roaring fire in the vicinity. Instead, these fireplaces look like fat cable screens with janky torch lights inside. This week, things seem to be improving on the fireplace front. There is a newfound appreciation for woodburning fireplaces & traditional stoves for heating purposes, then kids these afternoons are less interested in the immediate gratitude of a gas-powered flame & far more drawn to the outdated university fires that used to keep our ancestors alive all winter long. I have to say, although there is more labor that goes into maintaining a traditional wood burning stove or roaring fireplace, it’s worth it in the long run when your mood & energy bills are vastly improved.
