Are you thinking of improving the value of your home and updating some of its features? Homeowners are constantly working towards making their homes more efficient, more beautiful, and more enjoyable. Most often, homeowners focus on remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, as these are the crucial and most important rooms that carry the most traffic. But smaller projects throughout your living space can make a significant difference and improve the value, efficiency, and functionality of your home. Among many home remodeling projects, a fireplace installation or remodel can be overlooked as a smaller and not as a crucial home improvement project.
While fireplace remodel and installation won’t break your bank or take too much of your time, it can give your home a serious facelift and give you an opportunity to truly enjoy your home. Plus, remodeling or installing a fireplace is much easier than you might think! Also, if you ever decide to sell, the fireplace will boost the value of your home, make it more desirable, and enable you to get more than what you originally paid for.
Take a look at our fireplace installation project in Purchase, NY, see before and after photos, learn what kind of stone we used to make it look its best, and get inspired for a fireplace installation or remodel in your own home.
Calacatta Diamond quartzite by Reliance Stones features dramatic gray, dark blue, and faintly gold veining. This solid natural stone has a translucent quality that adds visual interest to any room where it’s installed and added to upgrade the look and quality of the space. The background of Calacatta Diamond is whimsical, gentle-looking, white, with faint waves of blueish tones. We love this almost magical looking stone that reminds of some of the most beautiful marble stones. Its precious diamond look boosts the value of any home instantly.
Calacatta Diamond quartzite embodies the very essence of contemporary sophistication, elegance, and refinement you crave in your home, and especially in the room where you and your family spend most of your time.
Besides its amazing appearance, Calacatta Diamond quartzite has other important qualities as well. Calacatta Diamond stone we used in this fireplace installation project is a 3cm polished quartzite with the polished surface finish. This is a solid stone that is ideal for indoor applications, from kitchen countertops, wall applications such as backsplash, to fireplace surrounds, bathroom vanity counters, and shower steps.
Calacatta Diamond Quartzite is very durable and strong, as well as heat resistant, which is such an important feature for countertops or fireplace surrounds. Also, Calacatta Diamond, as well as other quartzite stones, won’t scratch or etch as some surfaces can. Plus, its unique look will give a personal signature to any room where it’s added.
Calacatta Diamond Quartzite is a unique natural stone that also comes with the strength and durability necessary for the success of any of your home improvement projects. Thanks to its lovely appearance, it coordinates beautifully with a wide array of surfaces and styles equally in homes and commercial properties.
We are thrilled with the look of this beautiful fireplace in Purchase, NY. Calacatta Diamond Quartzite was absolutely the best choice possible to create such a must-have element in any true family home.
Fireplace a must-have in any modern family home. It gives the home that true, homey, warm feeling that cannot be replaced by anything else. The fireplace is a feature that will make any new home buyer happy. This confirms the fact that over 60% of home buyers would pay extra for a house with a fireplace, as stated by Angie’s List survey of real estate agents and homebuyers. Overall, fireplaces increase the value of a home by $1,000 – $5,000 in 80% of the cases, according to this survey.
A fireplace is not just a decorative element. If your home witnesses frequent power outages, having a fireplace during the wintertime is a necessity.
Furthermore, a fireplace won’t boost just the monetary value of your home. It’s usually placed in a room that presents a gathering place, a hub of a home where everyone meets and relaxes. It’s linked with memories, laughter, and time spent with the loved ones. This is why a fireplace is the heart of a home.
