Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Modern Fireplace - $6,800
fp with raised hearth removed. we would have trim package above, bot TV.
we won't have much room (for granite/tile) between fireplace frame and mantle uprights.
Traditional Fireplace - $5,500
we don't like the large metal frame present on most/all gas fireplace inserts. We would either look for thin frame option or choose to "gasify" the fireplace, add logs and traditional, good looking fireplace frame/doors.
Modern Fireplace - $9,000
this is something like we want, although I don't think we want that SPACE between fireplace and the cabinet left side.
this is type of cabinet for next to fireplace.
i think we're going more for gas f/p, instead of gas insert......it will give larger viewing area and allow us to find much nicer (and thinner) frame and doors.
