Have you always dreamed of having an elegant fireplace and hearth to cozy up to on a cold winter's night? The feeling and comfort that are produced by a fireplace simply cannot be compared. With the embers crackling heartily, and the logs glowing peacefully, the air is warm, and the mood is just right. You and your spouse have discussed this idea many times, dreamily envisioning the endless romantic possibilities. It always comes down to the same bottom line, though. The costs are just not within your budget at the present. And so, sadly, the idea stays nothing more than an out of reach fantasy. That is, until now.

Would you like to turn that lifelong dream into a reality for you and your family? Do you want to know how you can finally have your fireplace and eat (near) it too? Here's how to do it. Purchase an indoor fireplace kit, and install the unit yourself! This will eliminate all of the normal labor expenses, literally cutting the cost of buying a fireplace in half. An indoor fireplace kit will include everything you might need to install your own fireplace within your home.

There are a few points to ponder before installing an indoor fireplace kit. Where is this unit going in your house? Will it be placed into an exterior or interior wall setting? This is important to specify because your fireplace will need a strong supportive foundation. I don't think I need to innumerate the severe safety hazards involved in mounting a fireplace without proper support. A cave in can cause immense damage to your house, and we won't even mention the tragic results if a child or adult were in the vicinity during such a collapse. This is assuming no fire is actually lit at the time. If there were a fire burning, how much more harm could be done? So suffice it to say, a well-supported fireplace is the number one priority. Another decision that thought should be given to is what type of finish will you be adding to your indoor fireplace kit? Any additional weight must be calculated into the foundation (once again). From a purely aesthetic perspective, you will certainly want to ensure that your fireplace finishings agree with the room's current décor. Take your time browsing through pictures and galleries of different fireplace hearths and designs to get an idea of what options are available to you. Don't worry if you don't like the first few you see. A whole plethora of motifs exist to choose from. Accessories should also be factored into the design plans.
