You might imagine a fireplace in a home, but it can add a unique touch to your business, too. Customers or clients will love the comforting, cozy aura a fireplace will bring to your space.
You may be wondering how to implement a fireplace at your company. Generally, gas fireplaces are recommended. These require less maintenance and are a better fit to keep everyone safe. Gas and electric fireplaces are much easier to maintain than wood fireplaces, and are also more economical. Let’s look at some considerations for bringing a fireplace into your business.
Can you have a fireplace at a commercial business?
The short answer is yes, you can. While you’ll want to check your local regulations, businesses are generally permitted to use fireplaces. Here are some types of businesses that can really benefit from the installation and use of fireplaces:
- Restaurants: Diners will love the addition of a fireplace, as it will take the atmosphere of your establishment to the next level. Whether it’s for an indoor area or for a patio to make outdoor dining more comfortable during the colder months, a fireplace is a good addition. Some restaurants and bars may favor fire pits or torches. These can be excellent lighting and heating solutions that will offer a different look and feel for your restaurant.
- Retail shop: Adding a fireplace to a store will make your customers feel like they’re at home. That means they’ll be more likely to stay in the shop, which means more sales of your products. This can be a boon during the holiday season.
- Waiting rooms: Nobody likes waiting around for an appointment. That said, a cozy fireplace will improve their experience and make that wait a bit more comfortable and calming. While you may not be able to control how long it takes for an appointment to start, you can help people have a pleasant wait.
Where and how to add a fireplace
If you believe a fireplace is a good fit for your business, now you have to consider exactly how to install one. You want the fireplace to be a focal point when customers walk into the business. Adding a fireplace in the lobby or dining area accomplishes that goal. It will draw attention and create an aesthetically pleasing design. People are drawn to a fire’s warmth and light, which will offer your business an advantage over others.
You’ll also want to make sure the fireplace is adding just the right amount of heat. It’s easy to set the temperature of a gas or electric fireplace so it makes the space cozy, but not too hot. In the long run, you’ll save money on your energy bills, as a fireplace is a cost-effective heat source.
