Fireplaces Have Architectural Interest

Fireplaces enhance homes in many ways, but today we’ll focus on three. As it gets colder and colder, you may be thinking that a fireplace would be an excellent addition to your home, and you’re right! Fireplaces add visual interest to a home, and our team can add to the aesthetic appeal by adding custom slate or marble surrounds. Let’s dive deeper into what’s so fantastic about fireplaces. 

Fireplaces Have Architectural Interest

When a person has a fireplace in their home, it’s impossible not to marvel at the little architectural details. A fireplace is a focal point that can add so much character to your home. When we think about fireplaces, our minds default to it being a heating device used to warm a home. However, if you want to beautify your home, it serves that purpose as well. 

A Fireplace Serves As a Place to Hang Stockings

Fireplaces and the holiday season go hand in hand. A fireplace serves as the perfect place to hang stockings. Also, because a fireplace is a focal point, you can use it as a place to display your fabulous decor. 

A Place to Create Memories

2020 has been a year to think deeply about what matters the most to us. For some people, that’s family. Sitting around the fireplace bonding may not seem like a big deal, but the little things always matter. There are so many bonding moments that happen around a fireplace, and those moments shouldn’t be taken for granted. What’s better than being warm and toasty as we spend time with our loved ones? 

Are Marble or Slate Surrounds Better for Me?

What’s fantastic about both marble and slate fireplace surrounds is that both can evoke an elegant or formal look. However, if you want the ultimate elegance, marble is the better choice. If you prefer more of a rustic or nature-inspired look, marble is going to be the better option. 

In a nutshell, fireplaces warm the home both literally and metaphorically. A fireplace is an additional heat source, but it also warms up the ambiance of a home and makes it appear more inviting and charming.
