Five Signs You Need a Fireplace

October is National Fireplace Month, and there’s nothing better than watching the seasons change while curling up next to the fire. Think you don’t need a fireplace? Think again. We’ve complied five signs that point to you needing a fireplace.

 You Live in the Midwest

1.    With summer ending and cold wintery days ahead, having a cozy fireplace to warm your home is essential, especially in the Midwest. Picture it now: a fresh snowfall, a cup cocoa, a cozy fire. The scene has been set and all that’s left is for you to pick the right fireplace for your home. ­­

  You’re Always Lighting Candles

2.    Let’s face it, no matter how many candles you light, they just can’t hold a candle to the glow and warmth a fireplace has to offer.

You Love to Entertain

3.    If you’re hosting the holidays this year or having people over, a fire crackling in the background is a sure-fire way to set the tone for the season.

 You Usually Tune into The Yule Log TV Station

4.    This year, instead of turning on the TV to create an ambience, turn on your fireplace. Yule log TV will never be able to compare to the real thing.

 You Have Nowhere to Hang Your Christmas Stockings

5.    Instead of dreaming of stockings hung by the chimney with care, make it a reality this year. A fireplace sets the scene for an idyllic holiday season.
