When it comes to Highlands NC homes, fireplaces can add a great deal of appeal.  If you are doing a remodel with the intent on selling, consider enhancing your current fireplace or adding one or more.  Here in Highlands NC we see fireplaces in expected places, like the living room, as well as in unexpected places like master bathrooms and on the deck.  The advent of gas fireplaces has enabled them to be placed just about anywhere in a home.

The evolution of the fireplace has negated the need for a chimney, unless of course you are after a wood burning fireplace.  More modern homes in Highlands NC and around the country are seeing sleek fireplaces added to dining room walls, where our more traditional homes are still showcasing magnificent floor to ceiling stone fireplaces that are often a focal point of a great room or living room.  The beauty of the modern gas fireplaces is that they can be installed in areas in a home where you formerly could not have one.
