When we think of a wintery setting, the image of sitting next to the fireplace with a cup of cocoa comes to mind. While having a wood-burning fireplace is great and all, you have to have the chimney swept, and keep up with acquiring wood and disposing of the ashes. Even with the gas burning ones, you still have to use up the same amount of space. It would make sense to get something like a space heater that would use less footage and never need to be cleaned out, but there is something wonderfully pleasant about an actual fire burning.
The Serafin Liquid Fireplace intends to change the way we see a fire, by mounting it on the wall. This would be a great way to heat your home, and it allegedly uses a fuel that produces no soot or smoke. This means that there will be no stains in your carpet or on your ceiling. It does cost $649, but compared to other fireplaces that need installment and resupplies of expensive fuel, this is considered pretty cheap.
