Ideas for Integrating a Fireplace in Your Custom Home Design


As the evenings cool down in the coming weeks, your custom home’s fireplace will become an invaluable feature!

With the arrival of fall, chilly evenings are arriving in our area, making a fireplace an often desired feature in your new custom home. Columbia Builders designs their homes for all seasons, so we can assist you in choosing and installing the right fireplace for your needs – from our standard gas fireplace to many options you may choose. How can you best integrate a fireplace into the design of your new custom home? Here are some ideas.

Visual Centerpiece

A fireplace draws the eye, especially in a wide open living space. It makes a house feel more like a home, evoking a feeling of warmth and coziness. Our sales associate can help you choose the right materials – from stone and brick, to the style of mantel and surround – that will help you create the spot in your home everyone will want to gather around.

Subtle Design Component

Alternatively, some homeowners prefer a sleek, modern wall-mounted fireplace. We can help you achieve this look in a variety of ways, with traditional marble, slate surrounds, interesting tile products, or stone. This design element is ideal for any location from the family room or dining room to the owners’ suite.

Two-Sided Fireplace

Another consideration is a two-sided fireplace. This construction allows the warmth and beauty of a fireplace to be enjoyed in two separate areas. The most common areas to utilize this great effect are the kitchen and family room, living and dining room, and the owners’ bedroom and bathroom.
