Refacing the fireplace -- If you want to take the project to a whole new level, you can drastically change the look of a fireplace by using different materials on the exterior face of the fireplace. You can create a high-end elegant look with marble slabs, a modern look with concrete slabs, or a Craftsman look with small tiles in different shades and complementary woodwork. You can either add a mantel or remove one. You can change the shape or the size of the mantel to provide different proportions to your fireplace. Another option is to sheetrock or plaster parts of the fireplace. If the mass of the fireplace is too much for the room, you can reduce it by adding sheetrock or paneling to the exterior. There are even veneer stone and brick materials that are fairly easy to apply that can give your fireplace a very traditional look.
A gas fireplace design is one that is featured in a variety of different shapes and convenient sizes. This can help a great deal as a large number of homeowners simply do not have the large amount of space that are available in other homes. You will find several that are offered in natural gas options, and then there are numerous others that are available that will work with propane hookups. No matter what type of gas it is that you have in your home, there is a fireplace that will look perfect in your home. There are varieties that are available in gas fireplace design choices that offer the well known antique look that has become so popular today, Victorian styles are also offered, and then there are some unique styles that offer the contemporary and modern look of today.
The Victorian era was often referred to as The Battle of the Styles, due to the popularity of the many decorative designs from previous eras. Depending on a family‘s status, the Victorian fireplace mantel was made from slate, marble, wood or stone. The early and mid-Victorian period preferred the Gothic and Elizabethan styles: the Gothic was associated with the true Christian principles of morality, honesty and purity and the Elizabethan era invoked nostalgia for a chivalrous bygone age.
