In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the unique fireplace settings and designs that you might be considering for any part of your home. While fireplaces have traditionally been considered mostly for living room and family room settings, modern technology makes it easy to install a fireplace virtually anywhere in your home – and there are several options for doing so.
At Comfort Solutions Fireplace, we’re happy to offer a wide range of gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces and numerous related options to clients around Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah. Here are some other unique fireplace setting and design options that are at your fingertips depending on how outside the box you want to get, plus what to think about in each of these areas.
Especially as more and more people work partially or fully from home and are setting up dedicated offices, adding a fireplace is an increasingly popular option. While most of us wouldn’t consider a fireplace practical in an office setting due to the amount of space they require and the potential for fire hazards, modern technology has made it possible to install efficient electric fireplaces that are safe and easy to use while still offering all the warmth and ambience of a traditional fireplace.
If you’re going with an electric fireplace for your home office, consider the design of the unit and how it will fit into the overall style of the room. Electric fireplaces come in a wide range of styles – from modern and sleek to more traditional and rustic – so you’re sure to find one that matches your aesthetic preferences.
Outdoor fireplaces are an excellent way to extend the use of your outdoor living space late into fall and even winter. With the right outdoor fireplace, you can turn your patio or deck into a year-round gathering spot for family and friends.
When selecting a fireplace to use outdoors, there are several factors to think about: Weatherproofing should be a top priority, as you want to make sure your unit can stand up to the elements. Durability is another important factor, as outdoor fireplaces will be exposed to more wear and tear than those located indoors. Additionally, safety should be a primary concern – never forget that an outdoor fireplace is still a source of open flame!
Hallways or In-Between Spaces
Finally, don’t forget that you can also install a fireplace in your hallway or in between two rooms. This is an excellent way to warm up these areas, which may not get as much natural light or other sources of warmth during cold winter months.
The best option for hallways and in-between spaces will depend on the available space – wall mount fireplaces are great when there’s no room for a traditional mantel and surround, while more traditional looking models may be available if you’re working with a larger area.
No matter what type of fireplace you choose or where it’s located, Comfort Solutions Fireplace is here to help ensure your installation goes smoothly and that the end result meets your satisfaction. Contact us today to learn more about our fireplace options!
