The fireplace has served as an important part of many households for hundreds of years. They provide warmth, a place to cook food, and are often used as gathering places for friends and family. The fireplace is still a popular feature in modern homes. It brings enormous visual appeal and can be constructed indoors or outdoors. Many buyers are willing to pay more for a property that includes at least one fireplace.
Brick Adds Authenticity to Faux Fireplaces
If you don’t want a real fire crackling in your home, you may opt for a gas or electric model. While these usually are made of metal components, they can still feature classic brick. Create an authentic look like this example which includes modern style and PGH Bricks’ Cultured Stone by Boral in Fossil Reef.
Matching Brick and Stone Fireplace
Combining stone and brick can create a gorgeous presentation that’s also functional. This low-profile fireplace features Lifestone by Astral Bricks with matching rocks lining the interior.
