Inspiring Fireplace Ideas to Warm Up Your New Home This Winter

We all love a fireplace, right? The crackling fire, the undeniable warmth, and the opportunity to create interesting architecture all make fireplaces a highly sought after home detail. Regardless of your home's style a fireplace is an excellent addition to your custom home. There are a lot of styles to consider but our favorite fireplace designs include:

    • Custom Built-ins: If you are designing a wood burning fireplace in your custom home consider creating a built-in space for storing firewood. You can also create built-in shelving surrounding a fireplace that is perfect for displaying home accessories and photos.

    • Kitchen Fireplaces: Designing a wood-burning fireplace for your kitchen offers you the opportunity to create a cozy atmosphere and bring warmth to the space. Consider elevating the fireplace if you want to cook over the open flame.

      • Floor to Ceiling Design: When installing a fireplace it is beneficial to consider how it impacts the room's overall design. Floor to ceiling stone or brick adds height to the room and draws the eye upward.
