A classy indoor fireplace will not only add value to your home, but will also enhance your lifestyle. Gathering around a fireplace with your family and friends in the comfort of your home can increase bonding as nothing else can. If you’re ready to transform your home with a fireplace, here are a few things you should know about how to plan an indoor fireplace installation.
Pick a Room for Your Indoor Fireplace Installation
The living room is the most common choice to install an indoor fireplace. However, depending on what type you choose, you can install a fireplace in almost any room in your home.
A fireplace could make a dynamic focal point to your dining room, adding a touch of warmth to any meal. Or consider installing a fireplace in your bathroom – creating a luxurious spa right in the comfort of your home!
Once you know which room you’d like to install a fireplace in, you’ll have to consider some placement options. It’s best to install a wood fireplace by an exterior wall, or at least plan to create access to the roof for the chimney and flue. With a gas fireplace, you have a little more wiggle room, but you’ll need to consider where the direct vent will go. If you’re looking for an easier fireplace installation, go with an electric fireplace! They can be easily installed pretty much anywhere in your home.
How to Choose the Best Indoor Fireplace for Your Home
With so many models available from the Kozy Heat® stable, you can get confused about the right model of fireplace to buy. Factor in the purpose of your fireplace before you choose a model. Do you want the fireplace to be aesthetically outstanding or give more heat and warmth? Go for the option that you think serves your purpose the most.
