It’s that time of year again when Christmas is well and truly over and some people are starting to think about moving home. We’ve all heard that adding a bedroom or a bathroom can add value to the average home. But did you know that adding oak fireplace beams or rustic floating shelves, could actually make your home more attractive to buyers?
There are a wide range of surveys out there that place period properties with character, right at the top of many buyers’ wish lists. Some have even suggested that fireplaces can add thousands to a property’s value and in recent years, industry regulator HETAS reported an unprecedented interest in wood-burning stoves.
Whether you prefer a rustic aged oak beam or think a natural shaped oak fireplace beam would be a better fit in your home, an oak mantel can add a great deal of character to any fireplace. Some fireplace beams, such as the rustic aged oak beam, enable you to add an authentic-looking period feature with very little cost and effort.
All of our beams are supplied with concealed brackets that are capable of supporting your beam with ease. Our beams also come with professionally pre-drilled holes in the back of the beam, so your installation can be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
Full installation instructions are supplied with all of our beams and shelves, as well as being available on our website.
Don’t have a fireplace that you can install an oak mantel above? You can still add character to your home by installing oak shelves. As we leave the natural edge intact, each shelf will be different, giving the illusion of our oak floating shelves being a unique period feature in any home.
No need to worry if you don’t want to sell your house immediately. Made from a solid and durable wood, our oak floating shelves and fireplace beams are made to last a lifetime, so that you can enjoy them for many years to come.
So if you’re thinking about selling your home this year, it could be worth adding an oak fireplace beam or some rustic floating shelves to add that little bit of character that your potential buyers could be after.
