Although fireplaces are seldom used today for heating an entire home or cooking, they are still sought-after by today’s Atlanta new home buyers. A fireplace will warm up a room on a cold winter day, and the dancing flames and crackling wood are comforting.
It has been a bit cooler at night in Atlanta. If you are in the market for a new home you may want to think about what type of fireplace do you want in your Atlanta real estate. There are two main types of fireplaces – masonry, which are built of stone or brick and manufactured, which feature sheet metal fire boxes. Of course either type can be built to accommodate wood or gas burning, depending on the homeowners preference.
Once a decision has been made on the type of fireplace, there are still many options for finishes to choose from including stacked stone to brick to marble or granite surrounds. Not to mention the various types of mantles.
