    Coal fire
    Great in theory, but it means preparation, cleaning, etc
    Also the room will take some time to then heat up

    As you have gas central heating, go for a real effect gas fire

    My last house had a real coal fire, never again

    Any wood or coal burning fire will take a lot of upkeep, also make your room dirty and coal wood isnt actually cheap!

    Getting one ov these should not be as messy as a open fire as it's contained

    Is it for heating or just as a feature?

    Open fires look and smell great but log burners heat better but you dont get the same smells being enclosed.


    We are opening up our old fireplace and having an open fire but its a feature 'plus' and extra bit of heat as we have central heating already.

    Just a feature mate sounds as the same as you

    It may be contained, but you will still need to take the ashes out and also put fuel in!!
