How to Choose the Best Fireplace


 
Home Improvement,Interior Design
When choosing a fireplace it is best to consider what was there before, if it was a stone surround or wooden or plaster one and what you want to achieve with the room; whether you want to replace what was there before, add a new focal point or restore the room to its former glory. If you wish to add value to a room then an elegant fireplace is a must. Marble, stone or crafted wooden surround would be the best choice for maximum effect, however if you wish to have a simple surround there are many types including pre-fabricated synthetic or wooden fireplaces or wall mounted electric styles.

Another option can also be a reclaimed fireplace, often removed from older houses during refurbishment these can be excellent one-off's, although the structural integrity and quality can vary. This option is best if you are looking for the shabby-chic effect and have time and patience to search for the perfect surround.

It is also important to remember the hearth when buying a fireplace from scratch. Heaths can be bought new or also from salvage yards. Prices can vary depending on numerous factors including whether they are bought from a chain supplier or a small company, whether they are installed professionally or if it is hand built or pre-fabricated. Just remember that you'll be looking at it for a long time, so choose well!">A beautiful fireplace can enhance your home, bringing a warm glow to the centre of your living room. However choosing the correct fire surround or fireplace can be tricky and can be influenced by a number of factors.

Fire surrounds are available to suit many different styles of home or budget, from a rustic style pine surround to a minimal wall mounted electric fireplace. For a modern new build house, a plain surround would be more in keeping with the surroundings but if refurbishing a older, period house it would be more appropriate to consider a more stylized fireplace. For example, Victorian style houses would ideally suit a fireplace with additional features such as decorative corbels or brackets and carved features, such as an urn or swag feature. For those looking for some additional panache you can get crafted marble fireplaces in a variety of colours; black, white and coloured marble, which can really add the wow factor to a living room. However a good quality wooden or marble fire surround can be as effective as an expensive marble surround and can be painted, varnished or stained suitably to complete the required look.
