Create Holiday Magic With a New Fireplace this Christmas

The holiday season is here, and with that comes all of the nostalgic trappings: beautiful light displays, ornament-spangled evergreens, nutcrackers and snowmen, bright reds and deep greens, and, of course, crackling fires.

Few things provide that warm, nostalgic Christmas feeling like an inviting fireplace, which is why you might want to consider adding one to your home this year. Of course, there are plenty more reasons than that to get a fireplace. Take a look at all they have to offer you and your family this holiday season.

The Beauty of a Brand New Fireplace

No matter how many other ways of heating a home there may be, there will always be something magical about a classic fireplace. Below are just a few of the unique advantages of adding a fireplace to your home.

Bring the Family Together

Each member of your family may have a different idea of how they’d like to spend their time this holiday season, but there’s no doubt that spending some time around a crackling fire is one thing you can all agree on. Bring a little warmth and light to your family this year, and you may find that you’re all a little closer together for it.

Enhance the Holiday Ambiance

The roaring fire in the fireplace is such an important part of the Christmas tradition that there are TV and YouTube channels dedicated to simulating them for those who don’t have their own. While the Yule log channel might offer a decent approximation of that holiday ambiance, there’s really no substitution for the real thing. Adding a fireplace to your home is the ultimate way to set the holiday mood.

Create a New Tradition

Christmas is about tradition, and every family has their own during this time of year. Upholding those traditions is a whole lot easier when you have something to center them around. A brand-new fireplace can become the focal point of your family tradition. Light it before you watch a holiday movie or open gifts on Christmas morning, and soon, it will become integral to your family’s beloved holiday rituals.

Lower Your Energy Bills

There are plenty of strictly pragmatic reasons to add a fireplace to your home, too. The holiday season may be joyous, but it can also be incredibly costly. Keep those energy bills down by heating your home with a beautiful fireplace, and you’ll have more money to allocate elsewhere during this expensive time of year.

Increase Your Home’s Value

All of the amazing advantages that a new fireplace brings you and your family are things that another family is bound to value, as well. This means that adding one to your home can improve its value so that if you ever decide to sell your home, you’ll have another item to add to the list of things it has to offer potential buyers.

The Different Types of Fireplaces

If you’re now feeling inspired to add a fireplace to your home, you should know that you have some options available. Take a look at the different styles of fireplaces you can choose from below.


The traditional fireplace is something that needs no real introduction. They’ve been in use for thousands of years, and they’re still among the best ways to heat a home. However, you now have more fireplace options available to you than ever before. Those options include wood-burning fireplaces, gas or electric styles, open fireplaces and encased ones, outdoor fireplaces, and more.


If you have a traditional fireplace in your home already, you have the option to add an insert to it that can enhance your experience and reduce your workload. Inserts can use electric, gas, pellet, or wood fuel, and they offer a higher level of efficiency than a traditional fireplace.


Free-standing stoves can provide an amazing ambiance while heating your entire home with great efficiency. These options can burn wood or pellets or use gas as fuel.
