Having a fireplace can be a big blessing during the cold winter months, but they can also be a big eyesore if they are outdated or unkempt. While painting your fireplace (or even covering it up entirely) can be very tempting if you hate the way this feature looks in your home, you may find it worth your while to take the time to renovate your fireplace using natural stone. Stone fireplaces never go out of style, and you can quickly see your outdated feature become something new and charming again. Here are three ways stone fireplaces can enhance your indoor living areas:
1. Warmth – It’s not just the fire that warms up your indoor spaces; it’s also the natural stone that can work wonders for your fireplace. A stone fireplace can be warm and inviting to your skin and your eyes.
2. Elegance – There is something classic about stone fireplaces that adds an element of elegance, no matter what room they are in. Whether it’s a formal entryway or a bedroom with a fireplace feature, a stone fireplace can be the centrepiece that makes all the difference in your comfort and enjoyment of the space.
3. Timeless – Where your old fireplace may have been outdated or unsightly, stone fireplaces never go out of style. No matter how many times you change your décor, your flooring or your furniture, you’ll find a stone fireplace is the faithful feature that never fails to impress.
