Beautiful Fireplaces

Since I was young, I’ve always loved fireplaces.  When I would visit my grandparents, they had this wonderful home with very rich wood decor and an atmosphere of cozy warmth.  In the Fall and Winter months, my grandfather would light a fire in the large fireplace in the living room and my family would gather there to talk and enjoy each others company. I can remember enjoying the warmth of the fireplace and the calming nature of the flames.  I was always amazed how that fireplace could make an already cozy spot even that much better.  B41XT-B-610x340

Today, as I’m showing homes, there is no question that many of my buying clients are looking for fireplaces in their next home.   And while occasionally a buyer will seek a wood burning fireplace, most are seeking the convenience and style of gas fireplaces.

One of the great things about gas fireplaces is that if a home does not  have one, it can be added without a lot of difficulty.

The good folks at Heat & Glow published this article outlining 10 really great reasons to add a gas fireplace to your home.

These reasons include improving the value of the home, providing additional heating and warmth to a room or even a whole floor, the fuel efficiency of the new gas fireplaces, the beauty of modern fireplace design including the ‘art’ of flame articulation and much more.
