It has be true to say that a fireplace is the focal point of a room, whether it is in use or not.
Nowadays, we may spend more time relaxing in our living rooms staring a screen, rather than the hearth, but the fireplace remains the big draw on the eye, particularly when the room is first entered.
As such a cool looking fireplace, even if you never light it, says a lot about your interior design. Don’t overlook what a fireplace can bring to a room even if, with central heating, you have no real need of one.
Old fashioned fireplaces look great when use them in contemporary settings but for a more up to date look opt for something a little more modern.
