I just read a report from USA Today which said,
"people will pay more for a home if it has a fireplace."
I can certainly see why!
A fireplace is not only lovely to look at, it provides warmth, beauty, and romance!
Imagine the sounds of crackling logs, the flames flickering back and forth as you relax and sip your favorite Chardonnay at the end of a long day.
Add a beautiful mantle, and you have the perfect place to display all your cherished items throughout the seasons. We all love a mantle decked out for Christmas!
That fireplace becomes a focal point in your home, casting dancing shadows on the surrounding walls, radiating an ambiance of warmth to the coldest of rooms.
There is something about "warmth" that we are all attracted to.
Have you ever noticed who stands out when you’re with a group of people? It is the person who is kind, giving and warm. They reflect goodness from the inside out. They are wonderful people and what they give to others is invaluable.
Wouldn’t you love to be that way?
A person who fills the room with laughter, leaving the world a better place than it was before.
Build the warmth up inside of yourself. Be kind, be loving and be generous. Truly care about other people and see how rich your life becomes.
While you're at it, go ahead and add that beautiful fireplace to your new home floorplan.
The benefit you will receive snuggling up with a great book and a hot cup of cocoa in front of a dazzling hearth will be priceless.
And, as an added bonus, it will increase the value of your home.
