like this finish on fireplace better than one we have. Other things we like that could be incorporated into a new fireplace in sunroom are: the above floor hearth and simple mantle. Also, like use of matching rock for a column in the wall.
We are thinking the new fireplace in the sunroom will be wood burning, may want to plumb for gas in the event we bring natural gas and city water in from Dallas Lane.
maybe some glass tile with a good color mix would be good on the existing fireplace, although, may have problem getting something that goes well with the black Country Flame front.
nice fireplace, like small stone and rough texture but not a lot of places to catch dust and make it hard to clean. Good lighting too.
need to keep in mind need a place to keep wood, starter, etc. I don't like the racks on the hearth. Right now we just stack the wood up on the hearth not far from the fireplace opening. Probably not a great idea. Fyi, this is an example of a fireplace we don't like, too busy in form and materials. Don't like the way part of the fireplace juts out, the mantle, TV, wood racks, and light fixture attached to the stone - none of it. Too much going on.
