It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a gas, wood, propane or electric fireplace or stove.

You might just want a fire pit for your back yard.

No matter what you desire or you may require, whether it’s out of necessity or want, The Fireplace Den has grown over the last 15 years into the Okanagan’s industry leader when it comes to fire.

“We’re here, we’ve been here for 15 years, and we service what we sell,” manager Lori Strand says. “We honour our quotes. We’re a good business. We’ve been here a long time. We’re going to be here a long time.”

The fireplace business is certainly booming these days thanks to the massive amount of development that is taking place throughout the Okanagan. Whether you’re looking for a simple fireplace to curl up next to on a cold winter night or you want to impress with a DaVinci Custom Fireplace, The Fireplace Den has you covered.

“You can get a backyard fire pit or you can get a custom DaVinci, which is actually made when we order it,” Strand says.

The government is imposing more rules around using wood fireplaces, but just because you have a wood-burning fireplace doesn’t mean you have to tear it out. The Fireplace Den has been very busy lately installing inserts.

“An insert goes into existing masonry, like an old wood-burning fireplace,” Strand adds.  “People are switching to gas because the increased regulations and insurance costs around burning wood are making it more difficult to burn wood. We have put some really nice looking gas inserts on display to show people their options.”

The Fireplace Den, which is located at 3-1753 Dolphin Ave. in the Landmark District, boasts a showroom with more than 30 functional fireplaces. It also has the largest multi-manufacturer electric fireplace showroom in the Okanagan.

Even if you’re unsure of exactly what you want but know you want to be warmer, Strand and her staff will guide you through the process with ease.

“That’s one of the first things we ask: What do you want from your fireplace?” Strand says. “Is it pretty? Or do you need function? Or do you want a little of both? It makes a big difference. We can then direct you specifically to a choice of fireplaces that meet your needs.”

Financing is also available for those who need warmth or something aesthetically pleasing immediately.

The Fireplace Den is locally owned and is supportive of events in the community.  The installation crews all live locally, have been factory-trained and are all licensed gas fitters, so they take care of all steps involved in installing a new fireplace.

“We can take care of people,” she says, “when they need to be taken care of.”
