Help with plain fireplace wall in living room!
June 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hey everyone. Buying a house and need to change paint colors along with some other things. I have a wall with a fireplace centered and the cable and outlet wired to be mounted above the fireplace. I want to do something really cool with this wall. I was thinking about putting tile from the floor all the way to the crown about 5 ft wide (width of fireplace) and ripping out the crummy mantle. Other thoughts were to cover the entire wall making recessed paneling. Another was to find a cool acrylic tile or something light weight and cover the entire wall, or installing staggered wide plank wood strips across the entire wall. The wall is 15 ft. long and the fireplace is perfectly centered. What would have the largest impact for the money spent? Please post pictures if you have some! Thanks in advance for the help
