What type of puck lights did you use? - I am creating a fireplace wall very similar to this in my master bedroom. We are having difficulty figuring out how to put puck lights in a 3" tall shelf, where the light will be totally enclosed in the shelf. We have considered halogen pucks, but because of the transformer they need to use, we would need to increase the shelf to 3 1/2" tall, which is too chunky. We are currently researching whether we can fit LED pucks in a 3" shelf. Just curious how you made this work? Thanks!

Does putting a TV over the fireplace ruin the TV? - Always curious if you have a real, wood burning fireplace, with a TV, how does the TV not get ruined? Also, if you have a stone fireplace, how do you get the TV to attach to the stone without ruining the stone?

No it does not ruin the TV. The mantel blocks any heat that might escape the firebox. This TV is sitting on the mantel, but the plug and cable connection are behind the TV. In other applications, we just the screw the TV mount to the stone. Are you ever going to have blank stone with nothing on it over your fireplace? Probably not!

Ellen is correct.

Plus, woodburning fireplaces produce very little convective heat (hot air) versus radiant heat (which travels as light), so the area two feet above the fireplace opening is in very little danger, even without a mantel.

If you are trying to mount to an actual masonry fireplace, the trick is usually related to getting all of the wiring done.

We did an orange peel mist. It's almost no texture. Since then, I have had several clients ask for even smoother walls. What I have been doing lately is imperfect smooth. It's not museum quality, which can be really expensive, but smooth walls with some small imperfections. It seems to be acceptable without running the price up.

They were purchased at the McGannon Showroom in Dallas. The manufacturer might be Bernhart but I would have to confirm. Thanks.

No, it looks like perfectly smooth walls - no texture! It's just not as perfect as Level 5

I don't, but the tile come in 3 sizes - 2x9, 3x16, and 4x24. Each row only has one size tile in it. The tile came from Materials Marketing in San Antonio and is called "Vintage Vein"

My kitchen and counter top are white. The family room is seperate but adjoining. We were considering putting in decorative beams like these. Would you put dark beams or paint them white to continue the theme of the cabinetry in kitchen which is white. I feel as though the fireplace mantle should be the same as the ceiling beams. Our floors are a warm honey hardwood. The window frames are also white in kitchen and family room.

Mahogany. We built the beams out of solid stock - 1x8's cut to be exactly 1x7 (the distance between the doors). The beams could have been made from mahogany plywood since the edges are mitered. We used the 1" strips left over as a border in the dining room floor. It looked really nice.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Floating shelves above and on both sides of the fireplace give the family room a clean, crisp feel; the strong horizontal lines of the shelves are repeated in the mahogany ceiling beams. "My clients didn't want the rustic look of old beams and really love the crisp look of these mahogany beams," says Grasso. Turquoise throws and earth-tone glassware add splashes of color to the otherwise neutral palette. Natural light floods the space through two lofty windows and wood panel doors.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
8. Rearrange your furniture. In the living room, symmetrical arrangements usually work well. Pull your furniture off the walls and use pairs (of sofas, chairs, lamps) to create an inviting conversation area.
Put your sound system on one of the far ends of the room, along a short wall rather than the long wall. This allows the sound to travel out and diffuse and reflect toward the listener.
