Most home renovation TV shows and specialists would agree that Fireplaces
will increase property value. The fireplace is a permanent fixture in any home (just like the kitchen or bathroom) and will create a focal point in any home. It is often difficult to decorate a room (especially large living room) without a central focal point such as the fireplace.
How much value will be created by installing a fireplace in my home?
The exact value created by fireplace is very subjective as it depends on the area you live in, the current value of your home and type of property you live in. Some estate agents believe that well decorated room with distinctive features can be the pivotal point between sale of the property or are staying on the market for several months (or even years). Well decorated homes for in excess of 300% more than similar homes are not decorated to that standard.
