    When completing a home renovation many homeowners want to not only make their space more comfortable to live but also increase the value of the property. They want to know they are putting their dollars to good use with any updates made. While renovations in the kitchen and a bathroom are both popular, homeowners can also build their property’s equity with their fireplace.

    Here are three fireplace renovations to boost your home’s value:

    • Converting to Gas – Converting a wood-burning stove to gas is a great to make your home more attractive to others. Many times potential buyers are seeking the convenience and ease of a gas fireplace. Make sure to select a system that closely mimics the real thing to maximize its appeal.
    • Removing or Painting Brickwork – Few things make a home feel more dated that red brickwork at the hearth. One simple way to update the space is by removing this brickwork replacing it with a smooth wall or a more modern stone. If working with a tight budget, you may want to consider simply painting the brickwork a more neutral tone such as white or tan.
    • Adding a New Mantel and Built-Ins – The area surrounding the fireplace should be appealing too. Transform the space using a beautiful mantel in wood or stone – both popular design trends. Or consider increasing storage within the living space by adding new built-ins.
