If you are giving your home a makeover this year don’t overlook giving your existing fireplace a facelift. These can be easily upgraded and enhanced with a wood fire insert. Instead of a complete overhaul of your masonry fireplace which can be quite costly, an insert provides a stress-free more cost effective option. Maybe you’ve just moved into a home that has a chimney but no fireplace? Installing a wood fire insert is an ideal alternative.
Fireplace inserts have become a fashionable choice for the distinctive Australian homeowner who places a significant amount of emphasis on style and functionality. Homeowners are offered a choice in the types of fire insert to choose from: wood or gas. Each type has its own distinct advantages. Below, we take a look at some of the important things to consider when opting for a wood fire insert to upgrade your fireplace.
- Ease of installation
Most fire insert units are designed to fit into existing fireplaces but it is necessary to first establish whether the insert you are after can be easily accommodated into the fireplace frame or existing brick opening. Your fireplace’s measurements will influence the size of insert you can choose.
- Matching the décor with design
The consideration of aesthetics should form a part of your decision making process. After all, if you have a fireplace installed in a room, it is an integral part of the overall design.
