Fireplaces add so much to a room. There are many types of fireplaces, that burn different things. Wood burning fireplaces these vent through the ceiling. Some burn natural gas or propane, these use direct-vent technology to exit tough the wall. These can add to the heat in the home as well ambience in the room that they are in.
If you are looking at a fireplace as a mood-setter instead of a heat source, several lines of ventless ethanol-burning fireplaces are available - they're compact and can be installed just about anywhere in the home.
If you really want your home designed around a theme, there are many styles. As an example arrange a design around a Soutwestern - style fireplace.
Many different things are used to make them stand out and be a focal point in any room. Brick, stone, tile or even the way that the wall is painted around the fireplace. What a beautiful way to add interest and warmth to any room.
With the many types of fireplaces that are out there now, they can be in any room in the house.
If you want the heat of a fireplace ( wood burning, gas or propane) to help heat the home. What a nice thing to have in the home.
It is nice to have a wood burning fireplace for those times that the power is off because of a bad storm or some other reason. It is a source of heat and light in those times. It is also a place to cook your meals if you had to. What piece of mind that would give to you at those times of need, a way to stay warm, give light and to cook a meal.
How has the fireplace added to your home? Has it come in handy when you needed it for heat,light and cooking? Your comments are welcome.
