Are you planning upon a remodel that includes a fireplace? Below we‘ll outline the questions you‘ll need to ask and the steps you‘ll need to take to ensure that your renovation flows smoothly and that you‘ll have a beautiful fireplace to enjoy when your reno is complete. What type of fireplace do you want? The three most common fuel types that you‘ll find on the market today are wood burning, gas burning, and electric fireplaces. Each has its own advantages and drawbacks. Wood burning fireplaces offer all the tradition and comfort of a real fire and are the best solution if you are looking for a primary or supplemental heat source for your home.
Heater components: I must tell you that electric heater is an integral part of your fireplace. You need to maintain it in the best possible way. You can easily adjust the heat rate as per your requirements. But you need to understand its functioning beforehand. Most of the heaters come with a specific warranty. You need to look for such options all the time.
Refacing the fireplace -- If you want to take the project to a whole new level, you can drastically change the look of a fireplace by using different materials on the exterior face of the fireplace. You can create a high-end elegant look with marble slabs, a modern look with concrete slabs, or a Craftsman look with small tiles in different shades and complementary woodwork. You can either add a mantel or remove one. You can change the shape or the size of the mantel to provide different proportions to your fireplace. Another option is to sheetrock or plaster parts of the fireplace. If the mass of the fireplace is too much for the room, you can reduce it by adding sheetrock or paneling to the exterior. There are even veneer stone and brick materials that are fairly easy to apply that can give your fireplace a very traditional look.
