Choosing The Right Fireplace To Match Your Home
Considering the bitter cold winter season, a good fireplace will be a great investment. More than heating up the area, adding ambiance and value to your home, a fireplace gets the center stage during chilly weather.
The right fireplace for your home will depend on the following.
Make sure the fireplace complements the style of the home whether you’re on construction or updating the current design of the fireplace, it be for a traditional home or a mix of classic and modern accents. You may request to add a mantel for catching smoke and ash from the fireplace, or for aesthetic appeal.
Design of the Room
Match the fireplace to the functionality of the room design by considering the purpose of the area. A traditional wood-burning fireplace can be put in the chimney for proper ventilation. A direct-vented built-in fireplace can be vented through a chimney. If you don’t have a chimney or vent, you may opt for the ventless indoor fireplace. The clean and odorless ethanol burning fireplace can fit in well with any décor. A tabletop fireplace is easily portable so you can put them in any room where you need heat.
The Needs of the Owner
Here is where you consider your lifestyle and budget, and the presence of kids and pets at home before placing a fireplace, although there are innovations that allow a safer fireplace that’s convenient for families. For the budget, the most cost-effective choice would be an electric fireplace as it does not require additional construction and can satisfy the needs of a small room.
