Episode Summary

EDIT
The dreaded corner gas fireplace has long been one of the prime targets of attack from the Slow Home front. The reason the corner gas fireplace is such a bad idea is that it shifts the focal point of the room to the corner and often prevents an effective furniture arrangement. Furniture groupings in living spaces work best when they are organized around a focal point like a fireplace, television or view. Sometime back in the 1980′s, designers and builders began to set gas fireplaces on 45 degree angles in the corners of the living spaces sending the design world into a downward spiral that we are still trying to get out of today. Gas fireplaces need to be thought of as part of an overall composition, and not as an appliance that is drywalled into a corner. Gas fireplaces work best when they are positioned to center on the furniture grouping and properly relate to any other features in the room such as a window, built in storage or a flat screen TV.moreless
