A fireplace isn’t just a source of heat and warmth; it can also be the focal point of your home that you design your interiors around. However, an out of date fireplace can make even the most stylish home seem outmoded and passé.
If your older fireplace has seen better days, don’t just cover it up. Instead, make over your fireplace with a fireplace facelift! If your fireplace is still structurally sound and in good working condition, we can make it over with a new face. Not only does this kind of fireplace facelift give you a new fireplace, but it can also spare you the expense – and mess – of tearing down and rebuilding your fireplace. The following are three reasons why you should consider giving your older fireplace an update.
Add value to your home
Fireplaces are consistently one of the most important features that home buyers are looking for; according to the National Association of Homebuilders, potential buyers are willing to pay upwards of $1,400 for a home with a fireplace. But just having a working fireplace won’t cut it. While 31% of buyers said that quality was a fireplace’s most important quality, 46% said looks were most important.
Giving your working fireplace a facelift can add value to your home when you plan on selling. Likewise, an updated, modern fireplace can help your whole home feel newer and refreshed.
Reflect the style of your home
Is your style sleek and contemporary or country and rustic? No matter your design style, your fireplace should reflect it; even a beautiful modern fireplace will stick out like a sore thumb in a home that is French country. Because fireplace facelifts are custom built for each home, you can help create a unique design that reflects your home’s style.
Make a small change – or a big one
Getting a new fireplace doesn’t mean you have to tear out the old one. By working with our masons to create a custom fireplace design, you can make as many changes as you want. Whether you want to make a few minor upgrades or are looking for an entire new fireplace façade, a fireplace facelift can give you the look and feel of a new fireplace.
Fireplaces that are out of style can benefit from being refaced. Stone, brick, and tile can be used to create a new face for your fireplace – and can stand up to the heat your fireplace creates. Likewise, if you like the look of your fireplace but want to refresh the design, a new mantle, doors, or hearth area are all small changes that can have a big impact.
If your fireplace still burns well but its design no longer fits into your home, consider making over your fireplace. A fireplace facelift will give you all the warmth and heat of a roaring fireplace with the beauty and elegance of a new façade.
