After a long working day, we all long to go home and get comfortable. We spend most of our time working, thus having a Gas fireplace at the comfort of your house, either watching a movie, enjoying a glass of wine, or even listening to cool music creates a relaxed environment.
A Gas fireplace is more straightforward to light than an ordinary wood fireplace, making it more attractive to own.
The fact that it does not use firewood automatically translates into increasing one’s home value. With a combination of a top-notch interior design at your fireplace, it shows one has a stylish lifestyle and has a keen eye for design. Owning a Gas fireplace in your house offers ample warmth, which in turn helps save on extra costs that come with the electric bill increase due to the use of the electric room heaters.
Below are some key ideas to be considered, ensuring your home’s value increases after installing.
Consider its usage
The first thing one should consider is taking time to think about how they will use their Gas fireplace.
Where do you visualize it being placed in your house? Is it for decorative purposes or a primary source of heat in the lounge area? Is it for the bedroom or shared space for both friends and family? These are some of the questions one needs to ask themselves; answering will help make a wise decision based on the location and design for a unique gas fireplace.
Of course, when considering how you will use the new fireplace, you must consider the best location it can be situated. The best site to place it is in a large space to generate warmth at a wide range. The sitting room area can be the best choice, though, unlike the wood fireplace, this option is easily installed in any chosen area of your house.
Installing an outdoor fireplace or firepit is another location considered. They can be enjoyed much of the year, warming up a get-together on cool fall nights or wintery days. They are the center of the space you install it in adding to the ambience of your outdoor living space. There are many options including wood fuel, gas fuel, and bio fuel fire pits.
The ambiance brought about by the gas fireplace illuminates the surrounding areas with vivid ardent colors leaving the fireplace area optically appealing. Wall lights and dimmable lights are highly recommended; mood lights can be used as an accessory to magnify the fireplace area. Some fireplaces go the extra mile and provide lighting even after it is off, creating an attractive area.
Soft lightings are applicable and more recommended if one wants to meditate and relax by the fireplace; it’s also very favorable for a romantic dinner. On the other hand, for more warm energy in the sitting room, brighter lighting colors are flattering, offering a breathtaking moment. Lighting can either build or spoil the mood where a fireplace is present; thus, it is advisable to invest in a good lighting system that adds more value to your house.
Use of quality finishes in your gas fireplace
Having an attractive noticeable finishing around your Gas fireplace increases the value of your home. The fireplace wall can be open or designed with stone creating a beautiful finish with outstanding features. You can also use high heat friendly fireplace paint to customize the look of the brickwork safely and sturdily, adding even more options to customize the decor of your fireplace space.
