Best Fireplace: Zero Clearance: For Family Room?

Hey guys

Hope you're doing great. We're going through our remodel and will be replacing our fireplace.

We don't have a chimney/fireplace so we'll be doing a zero clearance.

We're looking for one that isn't ugly and will heat our family room efficiently. The room is 14' wide by 16' long by 9' tall. It is a fully "open" layout into the kitchen which is another 18' long.

We don't need to necessarily heat the kitchen, we're not opposed to "living" in the family room when it's cold out.

We'll be definitely getting a fan, regardless of the system, and as we have small dogs/kids, we'll likely get something that is louvered.

Our contractor pointed us to Kingsman, but it doesn't sound like they heat well. Some folk pointed to Valor as an option?

Our budget is very flexible, I would not expect that to be the limiting factor for us, but we also don't want to "waste" money on something that is over the top.

Heat, pretty-ish, our style has been described as "transitional," (So between modern and traditional), oh yeah, and probably need to stick to a 36/38" unit, though if we HAD to, we could probably put a 42" in there, but we would rather not.

Thank you guys for your help with this!
