Great reasons to add a fireplace to your home

Having a fireplace in your home can give you a beautiful source of heat and provide many other advantages for now and the future. Whether you are looking to buy a new home, build or renovate, the addition of a fireplace is often considered as a positive feature. From wood burning fireplaces to gas and electric, all can provide your home with a beautiful feature and heating. If you have a unit that is inefficient or seldom used, converting to a new fire is simple and surprisingly affordable, with the difference in the efficiency and running costs of your new fire quickly contributing to the costs of the installation. If you don’t already have a fireplace, Athena can help you determine the right size appliance for your home. As part of our bespoke design service we can also help you decide the best heating fuel factoring in your floor plan and lifestyle. Either way adding warmth to your home, can be a great way to provide you with these advantages.


Having a fireplace in the home can really improve the look and the feel of the room in which it is installed, whether it’s your living room, bedroom, kitchen, hallway, conservatory or summer house. Fires provide a more natural type of warmth that many individuals feel is more comfortable, providing a great means of relaxation. Not only will the added benefit of a fireplace look and feel nice to you, it can also increase the value of the home if you ever choose to sell.
