Fireplace Makeover Ideas
You do not have to plan a major construction project to give your fireplace the new look you desire. Sometimes a coat of fresh paint on unfinished or previously painted brick could do the trick.
Covering up old brick with tile can give your fire place a new fresh and clean look. Tiles come in all colors and shapes which means you can make the fireplace fit perfectly with your current decor. Most wall tile is suitable for a fireplace. Ceramic withstands heat well and is durable enough to withstand the demands of the fireplace. You may want to select a thicker tile for the fireplace for extra durability.
If would like to change the look of your possibly outdated fireplace completely, you could simply install a new mantel. Remove the old mantle. Take your measurements and head to a home improvement store or an architectural savage warehouse to find a mantel that matches your decor perfectly.
