Gathering around the fireplace on a chilly winter day with family is fun. The warmth, glow, and the wood-burning scent add coziness to the space.
Fireplaces are gathering spots, where families lounge around and spend quality time together talking, laughing, enjoying drinks, or watching TV.
Homeowners make sure that their new home-plan incorporates a fireplace in their design. Fireplaces are available in a variety of contemporary, modern, rustic, eclectic, and traditional styles.
For example, a corner fireplace maximizes the space in the living room. A hanging fireplace style offers a futuristic vibe. Two rooms can enjoy the two-sided fireplace, simultaneously.
Things to consider for choosing the right fireplace
Determine the kind of fireplace that is suitable for your home and family. Ask yourself some questions –
Is the unit for decorative purpose or primary heat source?
Is user-friendly and maintenance on top of your priority list?
What is kind of energy source you prefer?
- Gas fireplace
The pre-fabricated gas fireplaces offer a hearth flame and radiant heat without the troublesomeness of wood. In respect to venting you get options like direct-vent, vent-free, and insert models.
- Electric fireplaces
The pre-designed electric fireplaces are aesthetic and small in size, so a great option for small rooms.
- Wood-burning fireplace
You get to choose construction materials for the fireplace including brick, stone, ceramic tile, and marble. Choose dark-colored materials, so that smoke stains are not visible.
