When deciding on a fireplace for a particular space, consider the height and width of the wall where it will be installed. The right shape of fireplace can be just as important as selecting the right size. A wide wall calls for a wider fireplace, while a narrow wall would look best with a smaller fireplace. In a long room that has a more contemporary decor, perhaps a long linear fireplace with a ribbon of flame and a minimalist look surround would look best. For a traditional room, a square or box shaped fireplace or fire box, with fire logs and a traditional hearth surround would look most appropriate for the space. If you want only a small firebox, but the wall area where it is to be placed is quite large, create the illusion of a bigger fireplace by adding a larger or more elaborate fireplace surround. To help calculate what size of fireplace will look best in a particular space, it is important to take into consideration the distance that they fireplace will be viewed from. A good rule of thumb is to select a fireplace with a maximum width of no more than the closest distance from which it will be viewed. For example, if you want the fireplace to be the focal point of an intimate arrangement of sofas and chairs to be positioned as close as three feet from the hearth, choose a fireplace with a width that is 36 inches or less. Alternatively, if the fireplace is to be located at the end of a room, and will be viewed from a hallway or from across the room, pick a fireplace that is six feet or larger.
Unless your room has another striking feature, such as a breathtaking view or a prominent piece of art that immediately draws the eye, your fireplace will most likely be the main focal point of the room. As the room's focal point, it should be in keeping with the style and tone of the room's decor and substantial enough to be seen from all points in the room. The placement of furniture also plays a role in the size of fireplace you choose. A smaller scale fireplace may look entirely appropriate in a large room if the furniture is placed around it in such a way that the fireplace becomes the focal point of the seating arrangement and not of the entire room. Alternatively, a large and impressive fireplace, like the Spark Modern Fires Linear Burner, available in widths of up to eight feet, would create a first dramatic impression when placed on a feature wall that was visible from all points. Balance is another thing that should be considered when deciding on the size of a fireplace for a room, especially in a small space. Will the fireplace be the room's single focal point or will it be competing with another element. What did you plan to put above your new fireplace? In many of today's new homes, and especially in condos, where space is at a premium, the ideal place to mount a flat screen TV is above the fireplace. Not only does this save space, but the two elements blend together visually to create a pleasing single focal point for the room. It is important to scale the size of the TV with the size of the fireplace so they balance. If the fireplace box is not as wide as the TV mounted overhead, adding a substantial fireplace surround will balance the arrangement. The same holds true with fine art placed over the hearth. To create a more pleasing effect, the art should not dwarf the fireplace in any way.
Last but not least, when deciding on what type and size of fireplace to purchase, consider how it will affect the temperature in the room. Did you want a purely decorative fireplace, one that provides heat, or a fire feature that provides both? All fireplaces create different outputs of heat, depending on size and whether they are wood burning, gas, propane or electric fireplaces. Gas, propane and wood burning fireplaces can create a great deal of heat. While the heat generated from gas and propane fireplaces can be regulated by thermostat, as long as the pilot light is on, they will always produce some heat. In a small space, excessive heat could be a problem. An electric fireplace offers the option of having a decorative flame, without the heater being on. To create a focal point in a small space, an electric fireplace can't be beat. It is both affordable and simple to install just about anywhere in the house, even in the tightest of spaces. With the heating element off, there is never a problem with excess heat so it can be used in locations where it would unsafe to operate a traditional wood burning fireplace or gas fireplace, due to the risk of nearby objects overheating or even catching fire. As well, adding an electric fireplace to your home is much less expensive than installing a gas fire element or traditional fireplace.

An electric fireplace is a great choice for anyone that wants to add a fireplace virtually anywhere in their home, quickly, inexpensively and hassle-free. Electric fireplaces don't require a chimney, are easy to install without remodelling and they are often portable. The downside to having an electric fireplace is they are often less efficient and are not a cost effective way to heat a space, they can't be exposed to weather, and their flame is not as realistic-looking as a real flame. However, today's electric fireplaces are much more attractive and are designed with a flame effect that looks more life-like. Woodbridge Fireplace carries the Dimplex line of electric fireplaces. Dimplex offers contemporary fireplace models, traditional fireplaces with electric burners, wall mounted fireplace boxes, and media console fireplaces.

The latest study by the American Society of Landscape Architects reports that 97% of those surveyed rated fire pits and outdoor fireplaces as very desirable design elements for the home. The study revealed that there is a very strong consumer demand for attractive outdoor landscapes, as homeowners are spending more time at home; entertaining and relaxing outdoors. And as homeowners spend more time at home, they are spending more money on upgrading their backyards, patios and decks. In addition to outdoor gas fireplaces and propane fire pits, the other most popular design elements wanted by homeowners to make their outdoor living areas more comfortable and attractive were water features and outdoor lighting.

The addition of a fireplace is the quickest way to add value and ambiance to a home. It doesn't matter whether you choose a modern gas fireplace or a traditional wood burning fireplace, installing an attractive new fireplace in your home offers many advantages. Not only will a fireplace increase your home's value, it will make it more attractive to buyers when the time comes to sell. An energy-efficient fireplace can also reduce your home heating costs. The added value that a fireplace contributes to the price of a home is considerable. When a home appraiser evaluates a home's market value, one of the features that he looks for in establishing the price is whether the house has a fireplace. As one of the most desired features on most home buyer's wish lists, a fireplace can literally add thousands of dollars to the price of a home.
If your home already has a fireplace, another way of adding value to your home is to upgrade it. Perhaps you have remodeled or changed your décor, so now your fireplace looks old and outdated. Your fireplace should be the focal point of your room and it should fit the space. The placement of furnishings should be in relation to it. Your décor should dictate the style of your fireplace. An attractive fireplace will elevate the look of the room, turning a nice room into great room. If your fireplace isn't doing that, then maybe it's time to make some changes. A brick fireplace may look great in a traditional home, but can look old-fashioned in an updated room where it can clash with more modern décor.. Often brick fireplaces can be rejuvenated by making a few updates like changing the mantle, or by re-facing or painting the brick. New specialty paints, made especially for use on brick, can inexpensively transform a fireplace in less than an hour, giving it a fresh new look. Although more expensive, the brick can also be removed. By replacing out-dated brick with a more current fireplace surround material, you can change the entire look of the fireplace, transforming it from old fashion and drab to contemporary and fabulous. Some of the most popular trends in fireplace surrounds include non-combustible materials like marble, river rocks, faux rocks and manufactured stone veneers. Custom millwork and paint can give an old fireplace a new lease on life and is ideal in a traditional setting. For a very modern look, concrete, steel and large titles can recreate a major statement.
If your fireplace has a mantle, it can be updated or replaced with a more current design. If your fireplace doesn't have a mantle, adding one will give it a fresh new look. There are many styles of pre-built mantles, as well as surrounds and molding available that a competent do-it-yourselfer can install at a reasonable cost. If you are not too handy, the staff at our GTA fireplace store will be happy to recommend a local contractor to do the work for you. Alternatively, if you have the money to spend, you could hire a craftsman to build a custom mantle and surround. As a decorative frame enhances a painting or photograph, a mantle and fireplace surround should complement the fireplace it is framing. At Woodbridge Fireplace, we live and breathe fireplaces. We will take the time to assist you with your fireplace renovation ideas. We often work with homeowners, contractors and interior designers, lending our years of experience designing and sell fireplaces to help make your vision a reality.

They are both energy-efficient and attractive, making your home more desirable for resale. As well, replacing an old gas fireplace with a new energy-efficient gas fireplace model or retrofitting an existing wood burning fireplace with a direct vent insert is a great way to save money on your home heating bills.
