From traditional to modern or stone to wood or even glass fireplaces one thing is obvious and that is the look and placement of the equipment according to your home setting . In countries where average temperate is below the the normal values people install Gas Stove or Electric Stove depending upon the availably of Gas or Electricity .
I would recommend Electric Stove over Gas Stove because they are more environment friendly and consume negligible oxygen and hence keep the room atmosphere healthy . But obviously some people prefer Gas Stove because its running cost is cheaper . Electric fireplace safer to operate than traditional fireplaces or gas fireplaces. Then there’s the convenience factor – no messes to clean up, no upkeep costs.
As far as Remodeling of your home is concerned , i would recommend to buy Gas/Electric Stove unit which best suits your furniture and home equipment , especially the color and size of the equipment matters . The fireplace can be placed in your family room, your bedroom or may install the unit in kitchen as well depending on your requirement .
