    What is the size of the fireplace insert?

    This is only an educated guess, because this is not my project, but it appears to be a 36" fireplace model.

    By the way, when the unit is installed into a framed wall, it is a fireplace, not an insert. By definition, an insert must be installed into a woodburning fireplace.

    Hi Mikal, let me compliment you on the cabinets, they are gorgeous, like all other projects I saw on your website. We have replicated these cabinets but now we are struggling to find a mesh. Could you please advise what kind of mesh did you use and what size (how fine is the mesh)? Thank you so much.

    What about a sort of Gothic-style door? The attached photos are of the existing kitchen cabinetry and I'd want the dining room cabs to be similar/complementary. See the attached photo.

    Could you please tell us the item number for the mesh at Outwater Plastics? I have ordered mesh attempting to match this picture twice now, and I have had to return it each time as it's so hard to replicate from a picture. An item number would be much appreciated. I really love the mesh you chose!

    We have ours above the fireplace (gas) and it's not a problem. We mounted it with a bracket that allows it to turn and tilt, so it's easy to see from any point in the room.
  • PRO

    There's another really long-winded answer here on houzz.com (mine), but I'll offer the condensed version . . .
    The short version is: If you can mount the TV over the fireplace where the TV doesn't get hot, then go for it.
    The distance away from the fireplace opening, whether or not there is a mantel shelf between the fireplace and the TV to deflect the rising heat, and what type of fireplace it is (gas vs. wood, vented vs. unvented, etc.) all make a difference in how hot it gets up there.
    At least half of the fireplaces we install have TVs over the top. That being said, it's not usually the best place to put a TV because it may be too high for comfortable viewing.

    Vanguard furniture has a custom ottoman program 60 x 60 is available, I also believe they work with c.o.m fabrics so that could be an option if they do not have a fabric you are looking for

    Re: ottoman purchase inquiry, I found a similar gorgeous 60x60 tufted ottoman at Arhaus. They have this beautiful furniture chain in IL, STL for sure. You can customize with your own fabric & w/o nail heads, etc.

    Hi. For some reason, your question about the cabinet paint color came to me. I am a decorative painter who had commented on the cabinets, but I did not paint them. I noticed that in an earlier post, the designer noted that the paint is a custom color with a glaze.

                          Anne Colby added this to Key Measurements for Your Living RoomFeb 1, 2019

                          Stools and BenchesWhen you want a decorative touch or when you will occasionally need an extra seat or ottoman, consider placing stools and benches in your layout. Stools may be 16 to 20 in. (41 to 51 cm) square; benches are around 14 to 18 in. (36 to 46 cm) deep and 36 to 60 in. (91 to 152 cm) long.

                          Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Those Built-Ins Are Going to Look Smashing in ColorDec 7, 2015

                          But don’t worry, the color doesn’t have to be quite that bold to have a big impact, as illustrated by the muted blue-gray built-ins flanking the fireplace in this living room. An upholstered ottoman and accessories continuing the color theme complete the design.

                          Catherine Funkhouser added this to Give That Coffee Table an Extra Shot of StyleJul 12, 2014

                          The smaller tray here doesn’t cover up too much of this elegant ottoman’s velvet tufting, and it provides a flat surface for a vase of flowers, with room to spare for a few books and a greenery sphere. I love the pop of organic green in this room’s subdued palette.

                          Becky Harris added this to 15 Ways to Enhance Your Cabinets With GrillesJul 11, 2014

                          1. Display your favorite things without creating clutter. This is one of the most popular living rooms on Houzz, and the unique built-ins are a major reason. An open shelf, cabinet doors, drawers and glass doors compose the facade, but the wire mesh doors are the largest fronts. They tie the books and objects together in an uncluttered way — the mesh tones down the color but still gives us a peek inside. The feeling is open without complete transparency.

                          Laura Gaskill added this to 13 Strategies for Making a Large Room Feel ComfortableMar 3, 2013

                          3. Swap Your Coffee Table for an Oversize Ottoman Large seating arrangements can feel a bit empty if there is too much distance between the sofa and coffee table. Choosing a big upholstered ottoman instead of a traditional coffee table will close that gap and add softness at the same time.

                          Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The 10 Most Popular Living Rooms of 2012Jan 3, 2013

                          4. Blue built-in cabinetry in Denver. Built-ins were everywhere on Houzz this year, including in this popular living room. The blue cabinets add visual depth, but their gray undertone keeps the color scheme simple.

                          Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Two Sofas Double the Design PossibilitiesJun 11, 2012

                          If you like the look of a pair of sofas but are afraid they seem too overwhelming, use more modern and nonskirted options to make the room feel more open — especially when the curtains reach the floor.More:Could Your Living Room Be Better Without a Sofa?Choosing the Right Sofa for Your Room6 Reasons to Float a Sofa

                          Kristie Barnett, The Decorologist added this to Mood Makers: Create a Peaceful PlaceMay 15, 2012

                          Too many people make the mistake of ignoring their architecture. Use your architecture as the axis on which to create balance and symmetry. A fireplace, a bay of windows or another significant architectural element can be the center point of a seating arrangement.
