Where the hearth is
There is nothing more welcoming in your home than the cosy warmth of a fire.
Nothing beats sitting and relaxing by the fire. A roaring fire stirs up something primal within us, and we can’t help but be transfixed by the flames’ elemental beauty. For this reason, whether you choose gas or electric, a fireplace from Eden Hearth & Home represents the perfect focal point for every home.
During the past 12 months, many people have been spending more and more time at home and are therefore looking to create a cosy living space to be used at any time of the year. Eden Hearth & Home owner, Tracy Johnson, tells us that there have been many new and exciting products coming onto the market over the past 18 months, products which can really give your home the wow factor.
With many families now living in well-insulated houses, there was not always the need for a huge roaring fire. Customers are demanding a little more technology from the main focal point of the room, and do not want to compromise on looks or style
“We have seen a huge shift in the way people heat their homes,” explains Tracy. “With many families now living in well-insulated houses, there was not always the need for a huge roaring fire. Customers are demanding a little more technology from the main focal point of the room, and do not want to compromise on looks or style.” Indeed, with mood lighting and app controls, for example, Tracy tells us that today’s modern fires have really caught up with the 21st century.
From new build projects to refurbishments, Eden Hearth & Home offers a complete service to its customers, taking them from the initial survey right the way through to installation by a professional team of fitters. “From start to finish, including plastering, electrics and gas work,” Tracy continues, “we can do the whole job for you, and all work is fully guaranteed by us.”
Another great product available is the latest high-efficiency radiators. These are a useful alternative to the old and outdated overnight storage heaters. They’re also ideal for a cold spot in the home, be that a hallway, utility room or conservatory. Eden Hearth & Home offers a range of radiators that come with digital controls, plus WiFi capability, giving you total control over your heating. Even if it’s not your home that you’re updating, but a holiday let, high-efficiency radiators are ideal for any property, and again, Tracy’s team of fitters can take care of the entire process for you, from the initial survey through to the final installation.
Of course, as anybody who follows us here at Cornwall Living will know, what Eden Hearth & Home does best is bespoke fireplaces! These can be made in a whole spectrum of colours and materials, and with more than 60 designs for you to choose from, you’re sure to find just the right style for your home. Everything within the range can be made to size, and if you don’t want to replace your existing carpet but would still love a new fireplace, no problem! The surveyors will measure up and make your new fireplace to suit.
Due to the current Covid-19 guidelines, the Eden Hearth & Home showroom is temporarily closed. That said, Tracy and the team are offering one-hour appointments during the week for customers who wish to purchase or discuss a future heating solution. Safety measures are in place to keep everybody as safe as possible, but the best part is that you’ll have the team’s undivided attention when it comes to finding the perfect solution for you. Alternatively, if you are unable to visit the showroom, there are also online consultations available – simply call the showroom and arrange a time that’s convenient for you.
