I love this item! I wanted a fireplace in my small apartment and this is as good as it gets. It not only looks classy and matches with my decore' it actually warms the place up too! It was easy to hang it was like hanging a picture. I was so excited I went out and and bought some gelfuel so I could see how it looked. It was kind of hard finding the fuel, so if you can just order it with the fireplace...someone mentioned a backplate they added in another review, I'd like to add one, but I can't find one to fit it, but it's fine without adding a thing. If I had a large house I'd buy one for every room! I recommend this to anyone who is considering it.
