Off Centered Fireplace
October 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This is a house my husband and I are hoping to flip for a profit. But I can't decide what to do with this fireplace . It's not centered and my husband doesn't want to get into moving pipes and all. Where do you think I should go from here?

Frame the firebox with wood...have mantle go all the way to wall / corner. Use resultant box for stacking firewood. Makes useful and perfect for flip.

Easy-peasy - balance it with a bit of built in low storage on the right for media and cable / power for a wall hung television to its right. Use open shelf above and clean lined mantle all to match so people know how to use it. Stage it with big art over the mantle - gauge size of tv for size of room but dont build in sides so any scale could work - search houzz images for fireplaces and build an inspiration file for those long hearth off-center types - they are typically a bit more contemporary or mid century so you may want to use that as a gauge for other choices.
