A fireplace is a great way to create an instantly cozy atmosphere. It’s a common symbol of home and family–it’s incredibly relaxing and calming to sit in front of a warm fireplace during the winter months. And if you’re building a custom home, a fireplace should be a design and decor priority. But a fireplace can be included in the design of any room, and you have many exciting options to choose from. A wood burning stove can give you the warmth and atmosphere of an outdoor campfire, whereas a gas stove can provide you with a mess-free way to enjoy your cozy home. Where should you put your fireplace? Read on to find out!
Classic: The Family Room
You may automatically assume that a fireplace will fit in perfectly when placed in the family room. This is a popular choice because it’s classic and a great all-around solution. When a fireplace is in the family room, it can be enjoyed by everyone in the household, and can provide a warm, inviting space. Guests and family members alike will feel welcomed and connected.
Contemporary: The Bedroom
Looking for a way to spruce up your bedroom space for even more comfort? Bedrooms are places meant for relaxation and self-care. A crackling fireplace is a great way to provide a beautiful atmosphere. Imagine curling up in bed with a book and a glass of wine while your fireplace provides a warm and calming glow. Sound tempting?
Like the bedroom, a bathroom is often overlooked as a space that could be worked into a relaxing paradise. An interesting yet useful place to put a fireplace would be in the bathroom. Situated in the wall above your bath, a fireplace can provide a spa-like feel. Maximize your comfort by installing a fireplace in your bathroom!
