When you have carte blanche to design your future interior, you can also choose your dream fireplace. For their newly built property, Ifaf and Hussam had a clear idea of what they wanted, but would they find the right fireplace to meet their expectations?

Welcome to blog 10 of Home Is Where the Hearth Is, introducing people who have chosen a Kalfire fireplace for their home and giving you the insider’s perspective on where, why and how they went about it.

Turning a 100-year-old house into the home of their dreams was a project close to the heart of the Carsouws, and they ultimately added three fireplaces.

When Debby and Koen bought their new home, they immediately knew they wanted a fireplace.

Johan from restaurant KOKS wanted to place a fire in his new restaurant without having to compromise on space, but with safety. And so his search for an electric fireplace with realistic flames started.

Ingrid and Jan decided to rebuild their house. They need less space in their house since their children moved out. They want to stay in their house for a long time, even on their 'older days'.


In September 2017, Ed and Marita decided to pursue their dream of building their own home, designed entirely to their personal tastes and specifications.


Jan and Carina* began a new chapter in their life in September 2019, shutting the door of their old apartment and moving into a new home. 


Two years ago, Eliane and her family embarked on an exciting adventure: they built their dream home, designing and furnishing their home entirely to their personal style and needs.
