Fireplaces can change a room’s ambiance more than any other one item. It offers warmth, beauty, and functionality. Fireplaces are very personal and are often combined with other room improvements. They come as a stand-alone stove style, or an insert that fits into an existing masonary wood burning fireplace. A zero clearance fireplace can be installed just about anywhere in your home and you can have shelves, or bookcases built around it to give an awesome appearance.
