  • GET A FIREPLACE

    Nothing brings the family together like snuggling up around a crackling wood-burning fireplace. Though it might seem like something from a movie, don’t completely write-off having a fireplace in Hong Kong. Depending on your square footage, you may want to consider having a smaller decorative fire feature rather than a full-blown fireplace.  Ecox also provides a lot of options for fireplace designs.
