Good small gas corner fireplaces?

Posted by marysdottir (My Page) on

Can anyone recommend a good small gas corner fireplace? We have very limited wall space on either side of both possible locations for our new corner gas direct vent fireplace.

There is only 26 inches of wall before a window in one corner and about 33 inches in the other corner before a window. Of course, we would prefer to put it in the smaller corner for several reasons. In the preferred corner, the window is a small high one that has about 49 inches of wall below it so the fireplace could extend slightly below that window with a flat top mantle instead of one that goes to the ceiling.

I haven't been able to find anything smaller than a 33 inch heatilator but it still extends pretty far into the room.

Can anyone suggest anything that is designed to fit tightly into a corner?

RE: Good small gas corner fireplaces?

I would do a google search of gas fireplace or direct vent gas fireplace. If that doesn't turn up anything that will work for you, contact a gas logs fireplace contractor/installer, and ask for his advice.

If, after you do your search, you do not find any fireplace that will work, consider an alternative like a cast iron stove of a soapstone stove. They are a different look, but they are very energy efficient. You might find one that makes the kind of "fashion statement" that appeals to you. Google gas stove or cast iron stove or soapstone stove. Widen your horizons. I'm sure you'll find something that will work.

Good luck.
