Fireplace mantel help!

May 12, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I'm looking to put a shelf mantel bc of fire code we can't have the columns on the side. But I don't really like the tile. I was thinking of white tiles.... Any design suggestions? Oh we're also planning to mount tv above it. Thanks!

I would do a stacked stone fireplace. If you like white do a white quartz. Do the tiles up to the ceiling, it will make the fireplace look grander. If you have some more money, I would do some shelves in the alcove to the left of the fireplace and you can put your tv in there.

The tile looks tired. Go,a glass in a color. You need some in this room. Place mantel across whole firepl. 6" deep. If putting a TV. No need for anything except paint. I would paint whole room a gray. Get samples.

Thanks for feedback! I was thinking the same and will paint the area greige paint called Miners Dust from Dunn Edwards. Yeah tile is ugly and will look into different options to replace it. My husband is going to build a shelf on the left nook.

I would do what nikkiseashores suggested with the darker grey mix tiles up the whole wall and do a built in shelves in the nook where the tv currently is. Then mount the TV high in the nook above the shelves.
