“When the weather outside is frightful, the fire is so delightful.”

When it is cold and snowy outside, nothing warms up a home like a fireplace.  The glow of a fire transforms the mood in your home. Suddenly, it feels more cozy. You are more inclined to leave the television and screens, and decide to just sit and stare into the flames. Listen to music. Talk to a loved one. Relax.

This is the time of year when we spend more time indoors, more time inside our homes, and we want to find ways to make it warm and comfortable.  When we can hear the cold wind and see the snow blowing outside,  we enjoy feeling cozy inside together with our families.

There are many ways to make your home feel warmer in the winter besides turning up the thermostat.  Gas and natural fireplaces can create radiant heat as well as a warm visual atmosphere.  You can add candles, other lighting features, and warm colours to your décor in the winter.

You can also add a fireplace to a room other than a family or living room.  Have you ever considered a fireplace between your kitchen and dining room? Or between your ensuite bathroom and your master bedroom?  At Hearth and Home, we are experts at seeing the possibilities to combine great design with the practical features of fireplaces in your home.

But the greatest source of warmth in your home in the winter is your family.  Nothing replaces the love, affection, laughter and memories you create together in your home.  Your home is your sacred space, and also the backdrop for special times with family and friends.

At Hearth and Home, we take great pride and pleasure in transforming homes into the best possible spaces for families to share life together.  We understand how to add the warmth of a fireplace to any room, with all the design and style considerations needed to fit your décor and taste. Whether it is a traditional stone natural fire, or a sleek contemporary gas fireplace, we have a wide range of possibilities available.

What we can do is set the stage in your home for the real warmth to be front and centre, you and your family, and the many great memories ahead that you will create together.

Meanwhile, “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.”
