This is the fact that it seems to bring every member of the family into one room. It’s just something about having that warm and cozy living room with a freestanding wood fireplace right in the center of your house that calls out to your family members. Before you even notice it your whole family will be sitting around you.
Now this is just the first step. You may have all your family together in one place but you still need to do a bit of work to get them all interacting with one another. Chances are good that your kids are still texting on their phones and your spouse is still deep into their favorite magazine. Here are a couple suggestions of different methods that you can use to make your freestanding wood fireplace more than just a meeting area; but also a full-fledged family interaction hub.
Add a stack of games: By adding a small collection of board games on a shelf near your freestanding wood fireplace you will quickly notice that as your family gravitates towards the fireplace it will become natural to grab a game off the shelf and start playing it together. Now just sit back and enjoy the moment.
Make a point of starting conversations: Whenever two or more of your family is sitting down around the freestanding wood fireplace be sure to ask people how their day / life is going. With a little work you can turn this area of your house into an important bonding center that brings your family closer together every time you sit down.
A few snacks go a long way: Once your family is all sitting down together try saying “what’s family fire time without snacks!” Then make a few snacks and eat them with your family. Rest assured many days won’t go by before your family is all sitting together by the freestanding wood fireplace once again.
These are just a few ideas of the possibilities to get your started. With a little bit of creativity, you’ll see what a huge difference adding a freestanding fireplace to your home can do. We believe that there is nothing stronger than the pull of a warm living room with cozy couches once you add in a freestanding wood fireplace.
