Increase the Value of Your Home with These Fireplace Tips

Installing a fireplace in your home is a great way to add warmth and ambiance to your home (as well as reduce heating costs.) But did you know that installing a fireplace can greatly increase the value of your home? Here are some important tips that can help you effectively increase the value of your home when installing a fireplace.

Budget Effectively

The goal in making improvements to your home is to receive a positive return on your investment. When making new additions to your home, it’s important to budget your costs effectively to make sure that the increase in the value of your home exceeds the costs of the improvement. This doesn’t mean to skimp out on quality, but it may be beneficial to research the costs on similar projects beforehand to get a general idea of the cost.

Location and Purpose

Having an idea of where and why you want to add a fireplace is important in helping in adding value to your investment. The placement of your fireplace will determine how much utility it has as well as how much value it could add to your home. If you wish to best capitalize on the value-boosting potential of your fireplace, the best place for it would be in the living room with another smaller fireplace in the entertainment or dining room.

Pay Attention to Details

While already a value booster in itself, the craftsmanship and detail of your fireplace, as well as the surrounding elements can add even more value to your home. Consider surrounding your fireplace with elegant materials like: brick, stone, concrete, and wood paneling to truly make it stand out as the centerpiece of the room.
