Not ready for a new fireplace? You can still get in on this year`s hot refinishing trend. If you already have a fireplace, consider refinishing your existing hearth to instantly update the look of a room. If you`re suffering from cold chimney draft, install a wood, gas or pellet fireplace insert for instant warmth, added style and a reduced monthly home heating bill.
Thanks to creativity and revolutionary new fireplaces like City Series designer gas fireplaces, fireplace finishing is one of this year`s hottest interior design trends. Technology like City Series exclusive Cool Wall System is unlocking a whole new world of fireplace design possibilities, enabling flammable finishes like wallpaper and wood, and the placement of art and media without heat barriers (aka mantels). Follow us online to see original finishing ideas from designers who love putting fire center stage.
Today`s modern fireplaces not only keep your home basked in that long-savored firelight, but offer a convenience not readily enjoyed by our forefathers. With updated gas components, which allow one to flip a switch and instantly luxuriate in hearth ambience, rather than labor over logs and starter fluids, modern fireplaces also come in a range of designs that implement all your household values while maintaining the fireplace`s traditional place in the home.
The incomparable joy of gathering around a fire with your loved ones or reflecting in solitude on the crackling flames will never go out of style. We may live in seductively convenient times, but some things simply can`t be replaced. The fireplaces of today not only celebrate what connects us to our early brothers, but continue to earn their rightful place as modern heirlooms for generations to come.
