Most fireplaces are usually in living rooms, family rooms and finished basements. But with the vast array of appliances now available on the market, more and more are being installed in bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and outdoors. A fireplace can serve as a focal point in a room, giving a space a warm glow and exuding luxury. They will also help decrease heating costs. Here are a few ideas.


A fireplace can add a sophisticated feeling to a master bath… and help you dry off after a leisurely soak. Build right into the tub surround to heighten a relaxing escape.


A fireplace will create a cozy atmosphere and really make your kitchen the family’s gathering place.

Dining Room

A fireplace will help create an intimate setting that stimulates conversation over dinner.


A fireplace in the bedroom is the height of luxury. Cozy up in bed while enjoying the ambiance and warmth of your fireplace.

In the Office

Heat up a workshop, study or artist’s studio with a fireplace.


A fireplace situated between both the living areas and other spaces in the house can heat and be viewed from both rooms. Create a division between rooms such as the kitchen and an adjacent dining area. Add luxury with a double-sided fireplace between the bedroom and bathroom.

Outdoor Living Space

Fireplaces with a seating area help create the feeling of an additional room, and are a perfect place to entertain on a chilly evening. Add one near the pool or on the deck to encourage evening parties and make the most of your outdoor space.

There are many different fireplace options out there, so when considering a fireplace for any room, ensure you consult a specialty hearth retailer to pick the right fireplace for your needs.
