A stylish addition to a lounge
Many cast iron fireplaces can add a certain level of style to a room that many consider unbeatable in terms of chicness.

Whilst coal is starting to gain something of a resurgence as a fuel being used to keep a room or home warm many cast iron fireplaces, be they new or reconditioned, are able to be used with natural gas also. This said, there are many places that sell logs to be burnt and these can also weigh in at considerably less than other alternatives.
Cosiness of an open fire
There is certainly something to be said about the cosiness of having an open, roaring fire, especially during the colder autumn and winter months. Moreover, there really aren't many people who can say they don't like sitting in a warm room that is being illuminated by an open fire as the nights draw in.
