During winter or any cold night for that matter, most of us would commonly congregate nearest to the source of heat. Apparently, that would be the fireplace.
This does not only provide us with warmth but could also help us clear up the thoughts that have bugged us all day. Often, when we are not in the bathroom for stress treatment, we would be sitting in front of our fireplaces where we could unwind and replenish our drained spirit.
On summer nights, however, the fireplace becomes the source of life in the room. This is usually the place we hold flowers and plants and could also serve as the main focal point for the entire house.
Undeniably, fireplaces can give our entire living room a unique feeling that could not be provided by other parts of the house.
