As we creep into winter, it’s essential for your home to be warm and comfortable. A fireplace can play a great part in providing your space with a relaxing ambience and perfect temperature.
Apart from the warmth they emit, gas fireplaces are also environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
Not only is a fireplace an excellent investment to keep your home warm and cosy in the cold winter months, with the right features it can also deliver an elegant, eye-catching feature for your home. At Arden, we offer fireplaces as an optional extra in all our homes.
And to make your fireplace feature all the more eye-catching, here are three design elements you can implement to add some extra comfort and flair to your Arden home this winter:
On a cold night, nothing sounds better than cuddling up on the couch in front of a warm fireplace and watching a great film. Make this dream a reality by installing a wall TV above your fireplace for a polished look. Or perhaps you’d like to install a fireplace in your home’s theatre room – a standard inclusion for some of our home designs.
Whether watching a light-hearted family flick, a girly rom-com or an action-packed thriller, the TV and fireplace combo makes for the perfect winter’s night in!
Liven up your living space and fireplace with some fresh indoor plants! Low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing, position some small pot plants above your fireplace to add a touch of colour and greenery to your living area.
Why not create your own flowing indoor garden by using the fireplace mantle as a flowering feature?
Read our blog here to explore which indoor plants would suit your home best.
To add an even more inviting and luxurious feel to your Arden home, place some candles on top of, or around, your fireplace! Candles are a beautiful way to emphasise the warm and tranquil atmosphere of your living space, while filling your home with a pleasant scent and glow. Paired with your gas fireplace, this combination is a brilliant way to heat up your home in the chilly winter months.
If entertaining guests and relaxing in front of a fireplace sounds like your interior design dream come true, take a look at our beautiful display homes. Both of our Luxe homes, found in Torquay and Keysborough, feature beautifully dramatic fireplaces that ooze elegance and comfort.
