Trend no #1- switching to hassle-free fireplace

Having a fireplace was somewhat a hassle for many home owners, who had to deal with combustion byproducts, regular chimney sweeps and cleaning. On top of that, buying and storing wood logs is not that easy! That is why ethanol or gas fireplaces are becoming more popular, as there is not much to do except maintenance once in a while. You can forget about soot, ash or any smoke, plus the risk of catching fire is basically non-existent thanks to variety of sensors that keep the device- and you- safe.

Trend no #3- fireplace in the garden or patio

Traditional fireplaces cannot be installed outside, but gas or ethanol ones- yes. From easy to move, portable biofireplaces from our outdoor collection to built-in gas fireplaces- you can decide what you need. With ethanol fireplaces you have many options of different arrangements, as these are easy to move- for instance tabletop ones can be placed on the floor or any other hard surface so you can enjoy natural fire without any limitations. Planika’s gas fireplaces are also a fantastic option. We offer outdoor linear gas fireplaces - freestanding and insert ones as well as outdoor gas fire pits, so your garden can be either more traditional or modern, depending on the design.

Trend no #4- remote controlled fireplaces

Planika values innovative ideas and that is why we push hard to develop new technologies for your convenience. Our automatic fireplaces from ethanol collection, including the most advanced Fire Line Automatic are all equipped with safety sensors and many other useful solutions such as child lock.

You can even start your fireplace before you enter the room so it is already in full working mode for you to enjoy. Also, our gas fireplaces are fitted with Smart Home Systems and safety sensors and can be easily handled from any portable Internet device. The future is the technology, and at Planika we make sure to always update our devices accordingly.

Trend no #5- ecological approach

With constant climate changes and the worry of global warming, traditional fireplaces do not seem to be the best available option. Deforestation is a natural disaster, and according to WWF (World Wild Life) comes in many different forms that harm natural environment. Those beautiful yellow fireflames from burning wood-logs mean that a tree had to be cut down so a person can enjoy it at home. With 21st century and a year 2019 it is important to remember that we are obliged to preserve natural environment. At Planika we carefully consider all of those aspects and we create eco-friendly fireplaces that are the next step in the fireplace industry.

With all of this in mind, we believe that 2019 is going to be a very exciting year in the industry, with many interesting projects and designs ahead.
