Luxurious Kitchen & Bathroom Fireplaces
Looking for a way to add both warmth and elegance to your home? One solution that more and more homeowners are going for is built-in kitchen and bathroom fireplaces. Does it sound odd to you to have a fireplace in these two busy rooms? It shouldn’t, because it’s becoming quite commonplace with people who seek the dual benefit of good heating in the winter and great looks all year long.
Heating with kitchen and bathroom fireplaces
Anybody who lives in a cold-weather region of the country knows what it’s like to shiver in the bathroom and to wish there was an easy way to spot-heat a kitchen. Now there’s a way to stay warm in any room of your house.
Today’s modern fireplaces make the perfect heating components for smaller rooms and any rooms that might not be kept warm with central heat in order to save on utility costs. These fireplaces burn with high efficiency and, in the case of gas and electric units, are simple to operate. A single button turns on the heat, which is fully adjustable.
When used in kitchens and bathrooms, fireplaces provide excellent area-heating when you need it and at the level you prefer. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you can take the “chill out of the air” while only using this heat source sporadically and cutting down on the expense of using your primary source of heat to warm the entire house.
Where can you install an additional fireplace?
A wood-burning fireplace can be installed anywhere that allows for proper ventilation. A gas fireplace can be even more versatile if you buy a non-vented style. With a gas unit, installation can be performed just about anywhere, as long as there’s a way to connect the gas line.
An electric fireplace is another option. These appliances can be installed wherever there’s room and operate similar to a portable electric heater – only there’s no box sitting on the ground to trip over. When used specifically as a space heater, electric fireplaces are excellent choices for bathrooms and kitchens.
A touch of elegance
Heating technology aside, having a fireplace in the bathroom or kitchen adds a beautiful touch of elegance to the room. Among the wood, gas and electric varieties, there is a huge range of sizes, finishes and designs available. You shouldn’t find it difficult to zero in on the model style that best compliments your current décor and fits snugly into whatever appropriate space you have available.
Times are changing
You probably remember the days when it was highly unusual for people to have a phone in their cars. Today we have phones in cars and everywhere else. Many home builders now work from plans that include fireplaces in kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms. It’s becoming the wave of the future, so why not jump in the mix?
