New Fireplace Digs

Fireplace Season is almost here. The summer heat is finally winding down and the fall breeze is beginning to chill. It’s not too late to remodel that fireplace before Thanksgiving.

Whether your taste is sleek or transitional, there are more options than ever for clients venturing into this aspect of their home. Too many homes are equipped with unattractive fireplaces that make the home’s interior look outdated. It is possible to combine the functional aspects of the fireplace with better design that will bring your home’s interior design into the 21st century.

You may have been stuck with a cheap grade firebox due to a developer trying to cut costs, but there are ways to dress it up a bit with interesting interior panels for the inside of your fireplace.

The details of the fireplace are important. Gas Logs or Natural wood?

For those of you who choose wood, you can find stylish fireplace accessories that will add some flare to an otherwise regular fireplace for wood burning fireplaces.

Here’s an example of  each route from the Super Luxe to the cheaper bargain buy:
