Adding a fireplace to the restaurant can be a brilliant idea, and can change the current aesthetic of the restaurant. By adding a fireplace, you can change the ambience, and add a new decorative item to your restaurant. Furthermore, this can attract customers as well, because a fireplace will make the restaurant feel comfy and cozy. A fireplace will make your customers feel at home, prompting them to visit more often. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before you install a fireplace. With these few considerations, it will be possible to change your restaurant by adding a fireplace, thereby making a worthwhile investment.
The first thing to keep in mind is whether you need to make structural changes to your restaurant, in order to add the fireplace. If you are planning to add a traditional wooden fireplace to the restaurant, then you must make sure that the fireplace is placed in a secure position, and a grille should be added for protection. Furthermore, you will need to install a chimney, or some other form of exhaust, for the smoke to move out. One option would be to install a fireplace that runs on gas, or electricity. Though you will not have the pleasure of a proper smoke-and-wood fire, it becomes cheaper, more convenient, and safer to install a fireplace that runs on electricity.
Another thing to keep in mind is the maintenance of the fireplace itself. A traditional fireplace will generate a lot of ash, which means that your chimney must be swept out at regular intervals, and the fireplace must be well-maintained. Furthermore, once the fire dies out, the ash needs to be swept up immediately. This means that you will have to delegate the task of maintenance to your employees, and must ensure that this is done on a daily basis.
The last thing to keep in mind is the additional cost of the fireplace. For a traditional fireplace, the cost of wood (and oil) will become a monthly add-on – it is important to ensure that you always have wood and kindling for the fire, with a traditional fireplace. If the fireplace works on gas, then you will need a gas line. For electric fireplaces, you have to ensure that you have enough power for the fireplace, and will be able to afford the steep electricity bill. Therefore, it is important to ensure that you will be able to handle the recurring expenses, before getting the fireplace installed.
