The coziest place in your home is around the fire. Henry says a fast and simple answer is to simply wrap the brick in both tile or wooden, leaving the exposed brick for the firebox. A huge, ugly brick fireside and a hardly ever used wood-burning stove solid a dark, dreary presence over this decrease degree.
With a fresh coat of white hearth paint and colorful new tile, this fireplace turned shiny and welcoming. Ornately carved wooden makes this Mexican mantelpiece (discovered at a salvage store in Dallas) the point of interest of a colorful room. As a substitute of replacing the massive fireplace, the concrete stones had been professionally cleaned and etched to lighten the colour.
Repaired the fireplace by pouring new concrete and installing reclaimed brick from an old syrup chimney, located on the farm, as a new fireplace. The fireplace, completely proportioned crown moldings, white oak flooring, and a contemporary, calming colour palette fill the living room with charming, Cape Cod style.
We offer inserts that flip outdated, drafty fireplaces into high-efficiency heaters, whether or not you need to burn wood, gasoline or pellets. A new, taller surround made of rugged slate pairs with a white-painted wooden encompass that enables the feel and colour of the slate to face out.
Lastly, I built a mantel out of crimson oak, including particulars of wooden inlay banding and inset tiles from an artisan tileworks store in Detroit (Pewabic Pottery). This lounge is the fruits of the entire skills I built whereas remodeling the rest of the house and it is truly a point of satisfaction for me.
