According to top real estate companies, a fireplace isn’t only a beautiful focal point, it’s an opportunity to increase your property value. To optimize on both your home’s value and style, take a step back and examine your fireplace. Does it fit the style of your room? Does it fit the style of your home? Does your fireplace look dated? Maybe tired? Does it have universal appeal with either wood or stone? Would a potential homebuyer like it? Does it open up the room or make it look smaller and constricting? Is it wood-burning, gas or electric?
Whether you answered yes to all of these questions or just one or two, potential homebuyers do focus on the fireplace. It’s important to have a fresh, updated hearth that adds style, warmth, and of course value.
