Fireplace update
March 7, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We have high ceilings and lots of angles and have just updated our great room which we use daily - along with the fireplace in winter ((very cold winter). We need help with the ifireplace. It is wood and has to stay and the vents are meant to circulate the heat and work well - They are ugly as is the whole of the fireplace.. Looking for advice on what to do with the fireplace. Do we break it up, add glass tiles - paint darker and to the top - add a smalll shelf - NO WALLPAPER... My husband will not tolerate it in our home ... He will do anything else however.
Thanks for any tips.

You need to send some pictures and not just of the fireplace but the whole room.

nicoleplouffe, have you considered re-facing your fireplace with stone - panels or strips? It adds real character to the room, and with the many products available, you can choose something that goes well with the room and the look you are going for! Check out our website for some more ideas!
