Why You Need A Bathroom Fireplace

What’s more relaxing on a cold day than a luxurious soak in your bathtub in front of a crackling bathroom fireplace? This fall, research shows that bathroom fireplaces are the hottest bathroom trend.

The living room is the most popular spot for a fireplace, followed by the dining room, bedroom, or even the patio. They’re all great places to cozy up by the flickering flames. But now, homeowners are taking it to the bathroom. And it’s hardly surprising – the bathroom is an underrated cozy haven. Who doesn’t love to soak in a bubble bath on a cold, dark evening? Throwing a fireplace into the mix means you’ve got the perfect evening ahead. 

Why you need a bathroom fireplace

It will give your home some character.

While bathroom fireplaces are on the rise, it’s pretty rare to have a fireplace in the bathroom. As we mentioned, everyone expects a fireplace in the living room. Bedroom and dining room fireplaces are pretty standard, too. But the bathroom? You’ll probably be the only one of your friends with a bathroom fireplace. It will add a unique feel and a touch of avant-garde style to your home.

It will increase the value of your home.

That unique feel we just talked about? That will translate to your real estate value. If you ever plan to sell your house, a bathroom fireplace is uncommon enough to be a unique selling feature of your home. Considering there are some low-cost options for installing a bathroom fireplace, it’s a great return on your investment.

It will create a cozy oasis for the colder months.

Arguably the most important reason why you need a fireplace in your bathroom. With a fireplace, you can turn your bathroom into a relaxing and cozy oasis for the fall and winters month. Run some hot water, add some bubble bath or Epsom salts, pour yourself a glass of wine, and soak with your favourite book. Could you imagine a nicer evening? It could be like that every night with a bathroom fireplace.

Wood-burning bathroom fireplaces

Wood burning fireplaces are a popular choice because of their authenticity and ambience. However, they also require the most maintenance, as they can be messy and need to be cleaned regularly. Remember that the humidity in your bathroom may also affect the flame.

Vented gas bathroom fireplaces

Vented gas bathroom fireplaces produce a beautiful, authentic flame without the high maintenance of a wood fireplace. They also offer the most variety of styles and designs. The downside is that they’re the most expensive fireplace to install and because they need external venting, finding a suitable placement can be tricky.

Vent-free gas bathroom fireplaces

Vent-free gas bathroom fireplaces have all the pros of a vented fireplace and allow for easier and more flexible installation. However, because they’re vent-free, they may affect the air quality in your bathroom. Most come equipped with a built-in carbon monoxide and oxygen level detector to ensure your safety. To be extra cautious, open a window to keep the air flowing.

Electric bathroom fireplaces

Electric bathroom fireplaces are the most affordable and the easiest to install, and you don’t have to worry about the air quality or a mess to clean up. Although they don’t quite match the authenticity of other types of fireplaces, they’re a perfect convenient, low-cost, and no-fuss option.
