Expert praises open fires

Thursday, 04 October 2012

An expert in interiors has said that, in her opinion, nothing beats open fires of a certain sort – and her words could well be enough to spark the interest of home insurance holders, especially now that they'll be thinking about heating their homes.

"I personally think there is nothing better than an open fire with either logs or coal, with an over mantel and traditional mirror and lots of ornaments," commented Falchi Interiors' Marion Falchi. "It makes the house a home," the designer also said.

She explained that what she termed "traditional fireplaces with all the trimmings" won't ever fall out of use. Folk invest large amounts when it comes to restoring these sorts of fireplace, she said.'s Andrew Munro has commented in the past that fireplaces remain very popular because people want homes to have focal points.

"Depending on the alternative heating system they have chosen, they can complement this with a chimney, high-efficiency or flueless fire," he added.
