In the dark of winter, coming across a roaring fire is something most of us just dream about. Some lucky people have fireplaces in their own homes, while others have hit upon the ultimate in master bedroom design- master bedrooms with fireplaces.
Imagine cuddling up in bed with the warmth of a fire adding to the comfort of your room. Master bedrooms with fireplaces have a lot of appeal and can have a lot of benefits for the people who want a fireplace. Homes usually feature fireplaces in the living room, but a bedroom fireplace could be the item that gets you through the winter.
Gas and wood fireplaces
Both gas and wood fireplaces have something to offer you when installed in your master bedroom. A gas fireplace is a popular choice because this kind of fireplace can be controlled easily and turned off without any hassle. A gas fireplace could be installed with a glass cover over the exterior, so you wouldn’t have to worry about kids or pets accidentally stumbling into the fireplace.
Additionally, gas fireplaces can use the existing heating system in your home for power. If you want to install a new fireplace or modify an existing fireplace, choosing the gas option can be beneficial in the long run.
Of course, there are few things that can beat a true, wood burning stove. This type of stove gives you the ability to burn different kinds of wood and create the size of fire you want any night of the week. You can install a grate around the fireplace to keep embers and coals in, as well as pets and children out.
A fireplace could add unique style to your master bedroom. Traditional fireplaces are made of exposed brick, and can create a fun aesthetic on the outside of your home as well (in the form of a chimney). Having exposed brick in your master bedroom allows you to use this piece as the focal point for your room’s interior design. You could integrate the material used for the fireplace mantle as a place to store books or other objects.
The fireplace mantle may be made out of wood, marble, or another material. Whatever this material is, you could connect it with other similar colors or materials in the room around the fireplace. Brick can be painted or remain its normal color, which opens up a number of other design opportunities.
Master bedrooms with fireplaces
The fireplace you choose for your master bedroom should match the space you are putting it in. Fireplaces come in small, medium, and larger sizes, so you can match the fireplace you want with the room you are able to set aside for this feature.
Fireplaces can be made out of metal and other materials that may blend in with your room’s interior design. Items like bookcases or a writing desk could be fun additions to your bedroom, and make your space incredibly cozy.
If you are looking for a way to make your master bedroom stick out from the rest, consider adding in a fireplace.
