When it comes to interior focal points, nothing beats a masonry fireplace. Even a low flame in such a beautiful piece can add warmth to the atmosphere of a room surpassing any rise in temperature.
Finding a good mason can be difficult, however, and a fireplace built brick by brick is beyond the reach of many budgets. DESA Hearth Products offers a more reasonable alternative. Sold under the FMI (Fireplace Manufacturers Inc.) brand, the Mosaic Masonry fireplace kit is designed for any builder or do-it-yourselfer to install.
