There's nothing like the warmth and glow of a fireplace to cosy up a space. Pull out your slippers, make a cup of tea, grab that novel you've been meaning to read and you have the perfect evening. Or perhaps wine, cheese and a good conversation is more to your fancy. Either way, a fire adds ambience and comfort.
There are so many different styles and types of fireplaces nowadays; something for everyone. Some are strictly to set a mood while others manage to heat whole homes. Gas, electric, pellett, wood - just how much time are you willing to give your fireplace? Taditional wood stove or sleek, modern fire box - what suits your style?
When putting in a fireplace there's lots to consider, but the good news is, what you're looking for is out there. Here are just a few of the beautiful fireplaces we've encountered on OUR HOMES photo shoots. Which do you like best?
