Add a Custom Fireplace to Your Home Design
November 21, 2012
Nothing makes a place feel like âhomeâ quite like a custom fireplace. It’s the perfect juxtaposition of the new and the old, the modern and the traditional. With expertly crafted stone hearths or handcrafted wooden mantels, custom fireplaces offer nearly endless options to match any style or design.
At Sekas Homes, we excel at creating custom fireplaces that perfectly suit the lifestyle and needs of our customers, including gas or wood-burning and stone or carved. Learn more about these different custom fireplace types by contacting us today!
Custom Fireplace Types
Gas fireplaces, also known as vented fireplaces, are fueled by gas and can be used either to produce heat or solely for decoration. If you want a custom fireplace in your home, choosing a gas fireplace can be an excellent option because not only are they beautiful, but you can have heat at the touch of a button. Gas fireplaces can be set in either a wood-carved or stone mantel.
If you want to go with the classic and timeless, a wood-burning fireplace is the perfect option. Not only do they provide warmth and light, certain kinds of woods can also give off a welcoming and relaxing aroma—for instance, a piece of cedar can fill the whole house with a warm, wintery scent. You can choose either a wood-carved or a stone mantel for these custom fireplaces.
Custom Fireplace Designs
When it comes to the design of your custom fireplace, a stone surround can make any room in your home look natural and impressive. These fireplaces make a statement and add texture to spice up any design. Depending on your preference, you can choose either a gas or wood-burning fireplace to pair with your stone hearth.
Wood-carved fireplaces showcase an intense attention to detail and put true craftsmanship on display. They are a brilliant combination of the traditional and modern and can add beauty and elegance to any room in your home. You can pair these surrounds with either gas or wood-burning custom fireplaces.
Custom Fireplaces Outdoors
In addition to adding warmth to your home, you can also add custom fireplaces outside! If you want to add the perfect finishing touch to your patio, an outdoor fireplace is an excellent option. These wood-burning custom fireplaces can extend the use of your patio into the winter!
