Getting The Most From Your Fireplace

The fireplace has always been a comforting and quite literal warm place for the family and friends to gather round during holidays, celebrations, or just plain cold weather.  They are a feel good spot to sit down and relax and can be a romantic spot to cuddle with your partner.  They have since gone beyond simply providing heat and are now a focal point to a living room and now appear even in homes that do not require heating. There are many styles and modern homes are jumping on the bandwagon with their unique takes on the traditional designs.  With the six modern fireplaces featured below, you can see how the styles have evolved so let’s take a look at how far the selection of available options has come in recent years.
