Finding a rental home in West Vancouver is never an easy task as this area is such a well sought after location and many renters want a minimum of 2 fireplaces in the home. It’s not unusual to find a fireplace in the living room, kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and the den. Gas fireplaces are almost always the choice of the owner to install. So, are wood-burning fireplaces obsolete? This is a good question to ponder as we find ourselves in a fast-paced and ever changing world. We always look back at what has worked in the past and think of how it can continue in the present with a modern tweak here and there. We may be presented with various innovations in regards to modern fireplaces getting better and better but should we forget the wood burning fireplace completely? West Vancouver home owners always consider the best possible properties that would fit your specific needs. Since people are becoming health-conscious and Eco-friendly advocates, there’s always the Eco-friendly fireplaces which use clean-burning bio ethanol fuel, produces no ash, no soot and no smoke. They do claim that it is a much better alternative to harness warmth and comfort when needed. More and more properties handled by West Vancouver Property Management companies are slowly upgrading to Eco-friendly fireplaces. Though this is a nice amenity to a wonderful modern house, I miss the smell of the burning wood and the sound of crackling embers. It gives off that cozy and rustic appeal to a home where a thousand heart-warming memories are made in front of that natural wood burning fireplace and don’t forget your marshmallows.
