Create a Welcoming Space With Fireplaces and Stoves
When building or remodeling a home or business, an important thing to consider is the ambiance you want to create.
A beautiful fireplace in the great room of a home or business can drastically change the atmosphere of the place, giving it a refined, elegant air, or a cozy, intimate feel. During cold weather, friends, family, and customers naturally gravitate to the light and warmth, creating a place of friendship and community or even romance. In warm weather, an empty fireplace or stove can create a cheerful, rustic look that serves as a background or showcase for photos, heirlooms, flowers, or other collectibles.
Fireplaces and stoves can be trimmed with a variety of materials, such as wood, marble, stone, brick, or cast iron. Each material gives a unique appearance to the stove or fireplace, which contributes to the feel of the room. A granite fireplace exudes luxury and reflects excellent taste. Wooden trim and shelving, whether natural or finished, presents a rich, warm, friendly appearance, while marble and stone create a luxuriant, elegant tone.
In other words, stoves and fireplaces are no longer just heat sources. They are works of art that accentuate the tone of the home or business in which they are displayed. If you are curious about the appearance of a certain material or would like to view some sample designs, check out the range of premium quality fireplaces and stoves at Nagle Fireplaces and Stoves. They have a picture gallery with a wide variety of designs in each material.
Businesses, especially those that provide hospitality services for tourism, find that stoves and fireplaces hold great appeal to their customers. Bed and breakfasts, hotel lobbies, and fine dining establishments all find benefits in having some type of fireplace on display. While wood burning fireplaces and stoves can be time-consuming, messy, or take up needed space in commercial environments, there are many other types of stoves and fireplaces available, including insert stoves and built in wall fires. These options are modernly convenient, maximise the use of space, and ensure better air quality while still providing the delightful flickering of flames.
From the residential perspective, home buyers consistently prefer homes with a stove or fireplace, even if it’s not a primary heat source and even if they won’t really use it much. Including one in your building plans allows you to enjoy those cheerful, crackling flames any time you desire and provides an added perk to buyers should you ever decide to sell.
Installing a stove or fireplace in new construction is as simple as asking your building contractor to include it in the building plans. Most contractors are familiar with local stove and fireplace stores and will help you check out the range of premium quality fireplaces and stoves that they offer and find one that meets your requirements within your price range. They will also arrange for proper installation by a certified craftsman to make sure it’s done right.
Installing a stove or fireplace in an existing building requires some planning but can be done quite easily with the help of a certified, registered craftsman from your local stove and fireplace store. These stores specialise in fireplace products and will come out to look at your home and provide a free quote or estimate. They can remove old, outdated fireplaces or stoves and offer advice on safety, proper placement, and appropriate use of your new one. They will place your order for you and do the installation. If you are looking for a way to improve the spaces in your home or business, installing a new stove or fireplace is a good place to start.
