Easy Fireplace Makeover Ideas

I think fireplaces are not just for function.  It can be a wonderful design element for a room.  Whether you use it or not!  And its the perfect time to give a fireplace an update!  Easy changes include cleaning it up and adding new decor.  You can paint brick, change tile, and of course, re-do the mantel..... or add one that wasn't there before!  

ADD A MANTEL

BEFORE

This home was built very recently.  It is a gorgeous house.  They hired us to furnish and paint the master bedroom.  Adding a mantel to the existing fireplace was on the top of my list.  We used a piece of maple, stained it, and installed it.  Very simple but big difference!

CHANGING THE FACE OF A FIREPLACE

 
BEFORE

During the planning stages for this clients first floor renovation, we were going to simply white wash this fireplace and get a new beefier mantel, but then the homeowners decided to change to a gas insert and reface the front with stone.... And we re-used the original mantel but re-stained it and beat it up a bit to look aged.   :)
