More homes now are built with fireplaces, but that wasn’t always the case. The American relationship with fireplaces has been off and on over the decades but we always swing back to them because at the end of the day, a cozy fire is relaxing. In the past not all homes have had fireplaces and even today some aren’t built with one.
But, you want one.
Adding a fireplace to an existing home actually isn’t that big of a deal. It’s not a DIY project, but if your home meets the minimum requirements a contractor can make this major home upgrade. Not only will you get to enjoy a fire on those cold nights, you also get to see your home’s value increase. So, for a modest amount, as far as major home improvement goes, you get the joy of a fireplace and a big boost in sales when it comes time to move onto your next home.
