Tips and Tricks for Selecting the Right Fireplace

Choosing the Right Fireplace

Updating your home and adding a fireplace will help make it feel more sophisticated and cozy. Choosing the right fireplace for your home and needs is important. It’s important to select the correct type and ensure your home is compatible. Here are some things to look out for.

What’s the Main Purpose of the Fireplace?

Will your fireplace provide heat for your home, or is it purely for aesthetics? Decide this before moving forward. If you purchase a fireplace with the intent to provide heat, most likely it will only heat the room it is in unless you install additional fans.

How Do You Want It to Look?

Now that you know what you want it to do, it’s time to consider features such as trim options. Do some research to determine which will be best for your home. When choosing a decorative log set, make sure that there will be enough room around the logs and the interior of the fireplace. Check out the fireplace when it isn’t on. You won’t have the flames running all the time, so you want to make sure it’s aesthetically pleasing when not in use. Lastly, think about how you want to operate the fireplace. Do you want a switch on the wall or a remote control?
Adding a fireplace to your home will increase your home’s value and impress future buyers. It will also add to your quality of life, encouraging more family time around the fire.
