All you have to do is to flip a switch and have a fire without the hassle of firewood, pellets or ashes. It is safe and virtually maintenance-free.

The final step in gas fireplace installation here in Utah is fitting your finish. Finishing with a burner media is one way to make your fireplace appear as real as possible. Here are the various burner media options available for a gas fireplace.

Crushed Glass

These shards of mirrored glass create a modern, clean look for a gas fireplace. Crushed glass reflects light and creates a captivating sparkle and tint. It comes in various colors to complement your intended room atmosphere.

You can pair the crushed glass with LED lighting or up-lighting to create your intended mood.

Driftwood and Logs

If you are aiming for a traditional looking fireplace complete with conventional wood but no mess, driftwood and fiber logs are a perfect choice. This modern technology looks precisely like conventional burning wood complete with knots, splits, and blackened char marks.

You can pair the driftwood with speckled stones for a more rustic look.

Stones and Rocks

This elegant and earthy option brings the outdoors into your home. These stones and rocks are not the ordinary kind. They are from a heat-resistant material. Lastly, they come in various shapes but typically resemble beach stones and river rocks.

You can opt to mix all the above burner media for an all-rounded finish. Glass media withstands intense heat and can fill your burner tray. However, you do not directly place driftwood, fiber logs, and rocks on the flame but instead around it, as they might soot and stain your glass.
