Fireplace. Saturday , January 20th , 2018 - 02:07:23 AM
It goes without saying that fireplaces have been a staple of civilization for centuries. Although fireplaces were at one time strictly used for heating buildings only, as we developed better heating technologies, they have become mostly a novelty. Due to the warm, inviting, and cozy nature of a fireplace strategically located in a house, people will instinctively gather around. In a way, a fireplace is a bit like a television-it can act as the centerpiece of a room if the circumstances are right.
When we moved into our new house there was a long list of work that needed be done in terms of updating and remodeling, but nothing stood out more than that ugly pink fireplace dominating the middle of our living room. It was one of our first projects and our neighbors were amazed at the difference it made in the way our house felt when you walked through the door. Since that time there have been many more fireplace remodels in our neighborhood. You can spend anywhere from $100 to $20,000 updating your fireplace, so it is best to consider both your budget and your goals.
Some mantels can be purchased as a single unit through home improvement or fireplace stores. But to really reflect the personality of the homeowner and create a unique and interesting design deserving of being the focal point of a room, it should be built to custom specifications. There are a variety of companies that specialize in building fireplace mantels by hand to the customer‘s exact specifications and material. Such companies will often come directly to your home to take measurements and establish the overall design of the room so as to best create something that works within the space.
