I have a gas fire which i don't like (though starting to think i should try and like it!) It is coal effect glass fronted but it's all fancy (will try and post a pic) and not in keeping with our 1930's house we recently bought. We have an old (about 15yrs) gas stove from another room that has been converted to a cloakroom/showerroom.
Cannot work out if best to do the work & expense (new liner and work to chimney) to re-locate the 15yr old one (that may break as soon as we move it), keep the glass fronted one or go to the major expense of a brand new fire.
Lots of people saying about draughts etc which we had with a non glass front fire in the past which we wouldn't get with the stove.
Dh says woodburner would be a faff and that i'd regret it (very busy family)
