What Type of Fireplace Should You Include In Your Home Remodel?

With fall coming to an end, the cold weather is practically here already. One of our favorite parts about the winter season is cuddling up next to the fire and enjoying family time. If your home doesn’t currently have a fireplace, it might be time to consider one. Fireplaces not only bring together the family but also help to control heat in the home. Not to mention, they can add so much character to a room! Let’s take a look at the different types of fireplaces that you can choose from.

Gas fireplace

Gas fireplaces tend to be the more popular option for homeowners these days. They are easier to control and start because they often come with remote controls. This allows you to choose how big you want the flame, control the thermostat, and set timers. Plus, you don’t have to worry about lighting your own fire, which can be a bother for some people. All in all, this is an excellent option for those looking for efficiency and modernism. 

Wood-burning fireplace

There’s nothing that can beat a traditional wood-burning fireplace. The crackling of the wood and the smell of a fire cannot easily be replaced. Although the soot and ash cleanup can be a hassle, their heat efficiency is top-notch.
