Celebrating Progress This National Fireplace Month
As a supplier of quality fires and fireplaces, Eco Fires and Stoves were delighted to find out the October is National Fireplace Month! With the weather turning chilly, it’s the perfect time to curl up in front of a fire, whether it’s an aesthetic electric display or real crackling flames for you to enjoy. Of course, it’s also the perfect time to think about just how far fireplaces have come, and where they stand in the average modern household.
In years past, only the very wealthy could even consider more than one fireplace in their home, but with so many innovations in the industry focusing on improving both efficiency and aesthetics, homeowners are now able to move towards the reality of having multiple fireplaces.
Many gas, fireplaces do not require a conventional chimney or ventilation, making them a highly economical option that can be installed almost anywhere in the home, including more unusual rooms like kitchens and conservatories that do not usually get to enjoy the ambiance of a fire.
On top of this, fireplaces and stoves are not just to heat rooms, they are great for added atmosphere; fireplaces can often be a calming presence in a room, and are a great central hub which people can gather around to socialise.
Homeowners are also now more than ever before able to tailor their fireplaces to fit with their aesthetic preferences and home decor, without having to sacrifice practicality. For those with less traditional tastes, more contemporary designs are becoming more and more common in the market, and are just as capable as creating an impact as a focal point in a room as older mantelpieces; many opt to have full floor to ceiling fireplaces, or long horizontal pieces that complement home entertainment systems.
If you’re considering adding fires and fireplaces to your home, Eco Fires and Stoves have a wide variety of modern and traditional models for you to choose from! We know just how important it is to get something that fit in perfectly with your home, which is why we offer demonstrations of our gas, electric and wood burning models at our Fleet showroom.
