Why I’ve always wanted an inglenook fireplace

Posted on April 21, 2016 at 9:44 pm

An inglenook fireplace is usually large, traditional, rural and unique in its own way, but it also tends to take on the same style as the building itself. It’s a very British fireplace, and it’s one I’ve always dreamed of having, but of course, you have to have the house for it. Original inglenooks are really big in size and require a well-ventilated room to work perfectly, which isn’t always possible in a current build, but the again, it wouldn’t have the same stylistic effect in a modern home. I remember my auntie’s inglenook fireplace that we would sit around at Christmas, and it would always have around 10 stockings hanging from it at once. I only hope that one day I’ll have a cobble house in the countryside with a proper inglenook fireplace.
