What’s Hot in Fireplaces - From Our Partners At Hearth & Home

Five of the latest fireplace trends.

 

Fireplaces continue to be a highly coveted feature by homebuyers. NAHB is just the latest to rank fireplaces as a top home amenity for homebuyers when they ranked fireplaces as a top ten home amenity and outdoor feature in their 2019 What Homebuyers Really Want study. While Smith-Dahmer found that 97% of homebuyers are open to fireplaces and 68% see fireplaces as a must-have in their new home research.

In many ways, current homebuyers desire fireplaces more for their ability to anchor a space and its design, as well as, their ability to create an inviting gathering space for family and friends, rather than for their supplemental heating attributes. Fireplaces quite simply make a house a home for many of today’s homebuyers, and this desire aligns with many of today’s current trends.
