If you’re looking for convenience and low maintenance, a gas fireplace may be the way to go. But if you’re after a more traditional, rustic feel and don’t mind the extra work, a wood-burning fire may be a better fit. Some people prefer the look and smell of a wood-burning fire, as it can create a cozy, rustic atmosphere.
