Bringing The Fireplace Back

You only have to go back a couple of decades to see that the fireplace was the heart of the home. It was used to heat the home and create hot water, making it a crucial part of life in general. Furthermore, a lavish fireplace was a symbol of wealth, so there are many reasons to put your fireplace to good use.
