With a renewed desire for a simpler way of life, homeowners are once again turning their focus to transforming the kitchen into the heart of the home. A comfortable and cozy kitchen is a great place for family conversations around the dinner table, entertaining friends, and hosting parties.
If you add a linear fireplace to your kitchen, you can transform an ordinary kitchen into one that’s extraordinary through aesthetic beauty, ambient light, cozy warmth, and inviting appeal.
A linear fireplace will take your kitchen to a new level. With its flickering flames and glowing embers, the natural beauty of a fireplace will add the perfect touch of elegance to any interior design style. It will work well with neutral or bold colors and will always be in style.
A fireplace will add additional charm to the simplistic style of modern farmhouse themed kitchens. The rectangular shape of a linear fireplace will complement the fine and straight lines of contemporary or modern designed kitchens. And what could be more wonderful than a fireplace glowing in a cottage kitchen?
If your kitchen is short on windows or has poor lighting, installing a linear fireplace is a great way to bring more light into the room during daylight hours. During the evening hours, the ambient light from the fireplace will give the room a radiant glow. Ambient light can brighten up a dark kitchen and make it appear open and airy.
Additionally, a linear fireplace used to separate a breakfast nook from the main section of a kitchen can provide a pleasing pop of light in the center of the room.
If you don’t want to do an entire kitchen remodel on an outdated kitchen, the addition of a linear fireplace will enhance the existing features in the room.
Coziness and warmth go hand in hand, and a linear fireplace can be useful as a supplemental heating source in large kitchens. In smaller kitchens, linear fireplaces will have a bigger impact on the heat factor. A professional can address any concerns or questions you have about how much heat you can expect from your linear fireplace.
Placement of your linear fireplace will also play a role in the amount of heat distributed and the coziness factor. For instance, a unit in a wall next to the kitchen table will create a cozy warmth during mealtime more than a unit on a wall across the room.
Lastly, a linear fireplace near an area that tends to be drafty may help lessen the chilliness factor in your kitchen.
Do you want to spend more time with your family playing games or sharing meals around the kitchen table? Perhaps you want to make your kitchen the place where your teenager’s friends hang out after school. Maybe you want to eat out less and prepare more meals to share with your loved ones at home.
A beautiful fireplace invites people in and encourages them to gather around the fire. Placed in a wall next to a kitchen table, a linear fireplace promotes a relaxing dining atmosphere. When you work by a glowing fire during meal preparation for your loved ones, this can make the process more relaxing and enjoyable.
