Adding a fireplace can improve your home dramatically. A cold space can immediately feel more intimate and inviting to guests, and an area where you normally didn’t spend much time with your family can turn into a regular gathering place. When it comes to installing a fireplace, there are two major factors you need to consider.
Location, Location, Location
When you’re installing a fireplace, you’ll need to decide where to put it. In many cases, the living room or family room is an ideal place for a fireplace if you regularly entertain or prefer to spend time with your family. Some homes can benefit from a fireplace in the sun room as well. Choose a spot where you regularly spend time or wish to make more inviting. Consider a freestanding fireplace if you don’t have a lot of room.
Gas or Wood?
Wood fireplaces are nice, but they’re a lot of work. With a gas fireplace, you don’t have to haul wood, and you don’t have to deal with the danger of embers.
