Have That Fireplace You’ve Always Wanted!

By Tiffany Smolick


It is February in New York City!  It is frigid, and any and all thoughts, references, images, ideas about heat, fire, coziness, comfort seem to be first and foremost on our minds.  It is during these months that we wish we had given more thought to that apartment or home that had the FIREPLACE when conducting the search for our latest digs here in the city.

Ok, so don’t despair, there are several viable fireplace options available today that can turn your home into that cozy, warm, orange glow-filled space that you only dream about in these cold cold Winter months.

Some of them are wall inserts, some are contained within a wood, tile, or metal console, some are integrated into a piece of furniture, and others are actually portable and stylish. These options are fantastic looking and can be very affordable.

Give these fireplace examples a look, and do your best at narrowing down which option could be best for you!
