I was speaking with my sister-in-law last night about their upcoming move to a new house and the discussion gradually lead to my sister-in-law asking how our renovations were going. Of course this caused me to laugh, as our renovations have been stalled for a few years now.
You cannot believe how tired I am of looking at our unfinished living room/ dining room ceiling! It just needs a day or two’s more more and it will be finished! Hopefully we can get that done before the year is over.
Once the main floor reno is done I’ve decided that the basement will be our next project. Our house isn’t very big and all we are using the basement for right now is storage and as a laundry room, so it would be nice to make all that extra space usable.
I think I’ve mentioned what I want to do in the basement a few times now. It’s going to have a small spare bedroom, a storage room, laundry room, nice bathroom and the remaining area will be a rec room / TV room. Well, I think that’s the plan.
I’ve been thinking that it would be nice to put in an electric or gas fireplace when we renovate the basement. My brother renovated his basement a couple of years ago and he added a gas fireplace and it just makes the room. Plus basements tend to be cooler than the rest of the house, so having a fireplace down there would help us keep the room at a comfortable temperature.
Now as you know, I’m in Canada, but I happened to find what appears to be a great online store in the UK that specializes in both electric and Gas Fires. I know that I have several regular readers from the UK, so I thought this store might interest you if you’ve been thinking of renovating your home or perhaps replacing an existing fireplace.
The company is called HotPrice.co.Uk and they stock all of the leading brands of fireplace manufactures. Plus, as I said they seem to have a huge selection!
I haven’t given much thought yet whether we’d install a gas or Electric fireplace. Certainly we won’t be installing a full fireplace. Our house is just too old and that would be a huge renovation in addition to what we’d already be doing to our basement.
I think I’m partial to the inset gas or Electric Fires. They don’t take up much space and are as attractive as the outset fireplaces.
If you’re interested in getting a fireplace for your home take a moment to visit HotPrice.co.Uk. You can get Gas Fires in wall mounted, inset and outset styles in a range of traditional to contemporary designs. Their electric Fires come in both inset and wall mounted styles.
As I briefly mentioned earlier, if you are interested in a full fireplace, you’ll find a large selection of full fireplaces at HotPrice.co.Uk. They have designs made of limestone and wood, and you can even find full fireplaces that appear to be made of stone. They’re just gorgeous.
If I had a large home I’d want a full fireplace however since our space is already compromised we’ll likely go with one of the inset or perhaps a wall mounted electric or gas fireplace.
Do you already have a fireplace in your home? If you do, is it full, gas or electric? Do you enjoy having a fireplace in your home?
