If you are wanting to add more ambiance to your home, look no further! Having a fireplace installed in your home will elevate your space and make it more appealing for everyone. Not only do fireplaces look amazing in living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms, or even bedrooms, they are also great for:

  • Adding ambiance. No matter the season, fireplaces help improve the ambiance and make special events memorable. Whether it’s a romantic date night, excitement-filled Christmas morning, or just a chilly day that requires some extra warmth – both literally and figuratively – a fireplace will help set the mood for what’s in store for your day.
  • Providing an alternative heating source. During cold winter days it seems like no matter how high your thermostat is set you just can’t seem to get your house warm enough. Fireplaces help your furnace out by adding extra heat to your home, warming up the space your fireplace is in faster than other areas in your household. If you like having a cold place to sleep but want to warm up the living room, feel free to keep the furnace on low and turn on your living room’s fireplace to keep you warm and your bedroom cold. Wood fireplaces and stoves also work off the grid, which helps reduce your monthly utility bills.
  • Increasing resale value. Whether you plan on selling your home within the next year or the next 15 years, having a fireplace will increase your resale value. Studies have shown that having a fireplace can increase your resale value by $1,400, an average that has been increasing over the years. More and more people buying homes in the Midwest are expecting to have at least one fireplace in their home, so having one installed now can help you in the future.
  • Highlighting your style. With a variety of finishes, facing materials, and inserts, there is a fireplace option for everyone out there. If you have large amounts of wall space, a traditional fireplace will help add a focal point and eat up some empty room at the same time. If you are lacking wall space, a stove will only require a small section to be attached to the wall while the rest of it is free-standing in the room. Wood burning stoves or fireplaces are great for those who don’t mind a bit of extra work, but for those who want to be able to spend more time enjoying their fireplace an electric or gas option is the way to go.
