Whether you’re sitting outdoors by the fire roasting marshmallows for s’mores or you’re indoors drinking a cool beverage as you watch your favorite sports team, a fireplace can be an essential part to any home. They bring unity, harmony and comfort within a space and to the people who surround it.

But when is the last time you actually paid close attention to the upkeep of your fireplace? The truth is, it may be time for you to upgrade to a new and innovative fireplace. Here are a few reasons why:

Add Luxury To Your Home

Fireplaces are more than just a source of heat; they are the focal point of many living rooms and outdoor spaces. It is often the centerpiece within a space, and everything placed in the room is centered around it. Thus, it is important to consider a remodel on a dated fireplace to fit the design, style and usability within your Colorado home. Besides, would you really want your guests to sit and stare at a dusty, old fireplace? We didn’t think so!

Save Money With A Fireplace Remodel

We bet you didn’t know that the dated fireplace sitting in your living room is actually eating at your monthly utility bill. Old fireplaces are known to be drafty and heat often escapes through the chimney top. So, when you think you’ve saved money by not replacing it – think again! There are several ways to fix this problem and no, not all of your options involve a full renovation. You can simply install a gas insert into your pre-existing Denver fireplace to eliminate the draft issue. These new features are highly efficient and function better overall, heating larger areas than the traditional fireplaces.

Improve Your Home’s Aesthetic Appeal

Design trends come and go but having a fireplace in a home is a feature that we don’t predict will ever go out of style! However, the fireplace doors and surround can become outdated, so that is something to keep in mind when looking to make incremental updates to your home. Rearrange the overall look of your fireplace surround or completely redesign its structure to suit your new style. There are a plethora of stone veneer options and fireplace door styles to choose from!

Upgrading Helps With Fireplace Safety

Upgrading to having a gas insert or electric insert is a very safe option for a family with kids or pets. Inserts are fully enclosed which means that flames are protected and out of reach. This is a great feature to have to improve your home efficiency, safety and overall aesthetic while remaining secure and invulnerable to potential dangers.
