The fireplace and mantel is very often the focal point of the room and a reflection of the taste and lifestyle of the homeowner. It is one of the most appealing features of a home that not only increases the enjoyment of the home but also adds to its value and marketability. Adding (or modernizing) a fireplace is one of the most valued and profitable home investments that an owner can make.
Adding a gas fireplace is impactful, noticeable, and instantly valued whether your home improvement project is to enjoy for a lifetime or to serve the short-term need to upgrade the home for sales purposes. The fireplace adds glamour, appeal and instant value. Gas fireplaces can be installed in virtually any room. In general, however, most install them in the area that the family spends the most of their time together. Most often this is the family or living room where the asset creates a cozy and intimate atmosphere. It is where treasured family pictures, souvenirs and seasonal decorations are beautifully displayed. But also consider other areas of the home where the function and ambiance of a gas fireplace excels like the bedroom, dining room, or if you’re so lucky, in the “man cave”.
