If you’re like many homeowners, you may not realize it’s possible to add a gas fireplace to almost any room in the house. And as can be seen in these “before and after” photos from a home in Minnesota, it can have a dramatic effect on a home.

The homeowners recently sent their last child off to college and wanted to usher in their “empty nester” years with a new addition to their home – a gas fireplace. “We had wanted a fireplace for a long time,” they said. “Now that the kids are gone, we thought we should celebrate having successfully guided our children through schooling and into their new careers. Our lower level, which used to filled with kids and chaos, is now a very warm and welcoming space. We absolutely love it.”
They chose an SL-750TRS gas fireplace, a surround and hearth built of Chardonnay Southern Ledgestone, and a cast mantel and shelf. As you can see, the lower level of their home has been completely transformed! This is a classic example of how adding a fireplace can complete a home!
Summer goes fast and the gales of November will be here before we know it. No matter what stage of life you’re in, adding a fireplace will greatly increase your enjoyment of your home. Investigate the styles and options here.
