Our kitchens get so messed up within a few years that it is very difficult to keep up with the kitchen remodeling costs. The face is the decorative surround which is usually made out of brick and installed to the sides and above the fireplace. Sooo…that left us with four terribly ugly bathrooms (one of them that we’ve recently transformed though-but more on that later) and a fireplace that definitely needed some major TLC.fireplace-design-ideas-newsletter3-5^jpg” width=”1026″ alt=”fireplace remodel”/>
Remodeling a fireplace can be a difficult undertaking and not considered a do-it-yourself project to undertake. Interior designer Susan Diana Harris, Allied ASID, is crazy about color, and she used it to great effect around this fireplace. Most people are reluctant to look into options for redoing a fireplace even though they know it will make a world of difference.
So, I had the contractor remove the furr downs and rebuild them further back along the wall so our stone tile could return back to the wall and give that fireplace a more solid look. If you provide DesignTheSpace with all the requested fireplace dimensions they will guarantee that the mantel will fit your space!
In this example we were working on an older home restoration project and needed to cut through the floor in preparation for laying a sturdy foundation for the fireplace and chimney. These one-step facelifts use a magnetic mounting system to completely cover the face of your fireplace.
Not only that, but I feel like I’ve learned an incredible amount as far as DIY goes. From traditional wood mantel shelves to stained or painted mantel surrounds that include pilasters, facings, and a frieze, we can help create the perfect custom mantel installation that will nicely frame your wood or gas fireplace.
