Is your fireplace missing something? Does it take away from the atmosphere of your home instead of contributing to it? Does the large empty hole, known as a fireplace, not fit in with your décor?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions it may be time for a fireplace makeover. Not only will a fireplace makeover change how you feel about your home, it will also improve its resale value.
A fireplace is often the most commanding presence in any room. Our eyes are automatically drawn to it as the focal point of a room. If it doesn’t compliment the room, improve the atmosphere, or if it is an embarrassing takeaway from the room, what do you do?
You could cover it up, paint it, or rip it out.
What if none of those is an option?
What if there is a better way to give you the fireplace of your dreams and improve your home’s resale value that will cost you less and give you more?
A simple fireplace makeover may be exactly what you need to improve the atmosphere of your home and increase its value.
The Right Fireplace Door is the Key to a Fireplace Makeover
You don’t have to cover up your fireplace, paint it, or rip it out to get the fireplace you and your room deserve.
A simple change can be profound for your fireplace makeover and make all the difference in the world. Something as simple as a fireplace door will change a room completely. A room can go from being bland, boring, unassuming, or downright embarrassing to being elegant, stylish, fashionable, and graceful.
But, before you run to your favorite home store to buy a fireplace door, there is a lot to consider. That can be a recipe for disaster and can make things worse than just having a dark hole in the fireplace.
A Fireplace Door Contributes to the Atmosphere
If you think about it, you don’t wear a plaid shirt and plaid pants together. It doesn’t work. Nor do you wear pink and greens together. Could you imagine people’s response? Sure, you might create a new fashion fad, but do you really want to be known for that?
Of course not.
A fireplace door will either make your fireplace makeover look worse or better.
If you’re looking for function and don’t care about the look, then, by all means, buy an inexpensive glass fireplace door at the home store.
But, look at the difference a custom designed fireplace door looks like compared to the store bought, glass fireplace door. (Click here to view more Before and After pictures)
