Check out the hottest winter trends for your renovation

Posted 19 June 2019

Winter is officially here and when the temperature drops, a warm haven is a must!

When it comes to home renovations in winter, the key trend is creating warmth.

Heating your home to withstand the chill is a common renovation goal for retreating in the cooler months.

According to the Style Studio by Summit, feature fireplaces are a popular choice.

They not only look great and bring a great focal point to a space, but bring much welcomed warmth to a room.

For heat, it is best to install a space heater as opposed to an ambient heater.

Space heaters, such as balanced flue Heat & Glo fireplaces, bring fresh air into a room for better air quality and warm a space better than an ambient heater, which are more about the aesthetics than function.

Space heaters come in the form of a traditional fireplace look (think modern mantle), to long line low landscape styles.

When installing these type of heaters to a living area, you must consider the placement of your television as due to the heat they omit, you cannot place them on top but a heat shelf or mantle can combat this.

Fire pits are another great winter addition to an alfresco area.

They look great and bring amazing warmth to the space and best of all allow you to use your alfresco area all year round.
