Nothing Says Home More than a Fireplace!
We’re all familiar with fireplaces as a staple feature in many living rooms and bedrooms but as a part of the kitchen? While the kitchen may not be the first image that comes to mind when thinking of fireplaces, this room is becoming an increasingly popular place to put one. New options in gas and electric fireplaces have enabled fireplaces to be suitable for installation in any room of a home, including the kitchen. As homeowners realize the allure of having this trendy, yet practical, element in their kitchen, we’re seeing more kitchens being featured with fireplaces.
If you think about it, kitchens are already a room where everyone spends a lot of time and may be the only room (outside of the bathroom and bedroom) that gets any use during the week. If the kitchen is where the majority of time is spent, why not make it as appealing and comfortable as possible? Fireplaces can be the perfect addition to create a classy, cozy and charming kitchen.
Kitchen Fireplace Design
When looking to add a fireplace to a kitchen, the design should complement the overall look and feel of the room, incorporating the style of the cabinets, furniture, fabrics and other décor. There are many tile options that are both heat resistant and aesthetic, so you can design a fireplace in a style that perfectly suits your kitchen. So think beyond brick when designing your fireplace surround! Stackstone, marble, and granite are all beautiful options. Soapstone is another fabulous choice as it’s very dense, making it one of the best natural materials for conducting and retaining heat.
