If you have ever sat around the warm glow of a fireplace on a winter evening, you’ll know how comfortable and cosy a fire at home can be.
Many people consider fireplaces a bonus when building, designing and searching for their new home – and for good reason! A fireplace is a great way to add that warm glow to your living area, where you can relax and beat the winter chill.
But that’s not all – there are some amazing benefits to having a fireplace you might never have considered:
Enjoy the ambience
There’s nothing better than sitting by the fire, warming your feet and watching the flames crackle and glow. Cosy up for fun times with the family, enjoy a sophisticated drink with friends or spend a romantic night by the fire with someone you love.
Add style and character to your space
Fireplaces create a unique atmosphere that you can work with depending on your style. A fireplace is visually stunning and makes for a great focal point, setting the tone for the space. You might find it gives your living area depth and sophistication, or maybe it lends a bit of character and flair to an otherwise simple interior. Style your living space around it and watch the room transform.
Increase the value of your home
Real estate trends show that many people consider fireplaces a plus when buying a new home. Having a fireplace means not only enjoying it for many years but also knowing that if you ever choose to sell, you’ll have added an extra point of interest and greater value to your home.
Save energy and lower your bills
Did you know that having a fireplace can help you save money? Fireplaces are often a more efficient way of heating the house, meaning that you won’t have to rely on inefficient and expensive heating to stay warm.
Most fireplaces now must comply with energy efficiency standards, meaning you’ll be relying less on fossil fuels. This is especially true if you’re burning wood, a sustainable energy source with a smaller carbon footprint. Heating the house while generating lower emissions is good for the environment and good for you.
