Posted on: 22 November 2018

You want to make a few changes inside your home to make the space more livable and fun. You have a wood burner or fireplace in your home already, but the wood burning appliance is old and dated. You don't even remember the last time you used the unit to heat your home, but the unit is a focal point in your living area and it's become an eyesore.

You can revamp your fireplace by having a custom fireplace installed to replace the current unit in your home. Whether you have an old wood burning stove that is rusted and aged or a classic fireplace with brick that is stained, cracking, or otherwise unattractive, designing a custom fireplace provides many benefits you can enjoy right away. Here are reasons to consider a custom fireplace in your home.

You modernize your home in beautiful ways

There are many ways you can make your home more modern in its appearance with a custom fireplace. Fireplaces can be made out of granite, marble, or other hard natural stone to give your property a new and contemporary appeal. Or, if you have a fireplace and just want to upgrade the unit, you can have a new fireplace insert installed with custom glass doors with brass or steel finishes to give your fireplace a more attractive look.

You create a natural space of comfort

If you've never used your wood burning appliance or you have fears that using your fireplace can be a hazard, then have the unit upgraded so you can create an ambiance of warmth and comfort in your home. Whether you convert your fireplace into a gas burner or you want a classic wood burning design, your finished fireplace will be not only beautiful, but safe for use in the winter season. You can enjoy ample and reliable heat without making your energy costs go up.

You create better home value

When you make an upgrade to your fireplace by adding custom touches, such as a custom mantel or new shelving inserts of brick or natural stone, you add value to your home. Not only can you enjoy using your new custom fireplace any time you wish, if you choose to refinance or sell your home in the future, you can recoup some of your investment in the sale or refinancing of your home.
