Similarly, electric fireplaces offer ease of installation, ease of use, and a variety of design options. But also like gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces do not provide a real wood burning fire. Another question that needs to be asked is where in your home do you want to position your fireplace? The best placement is near an outside wall with ample room for framing of a chimney chase to house the unit and venting components. For installation in Canada, the chase would need to be insulated, vapour barriered, and drywalled in order to meet building code requirements. Each fireplace comes with an installation manual that details the framing and installation requirements. Typically, a fireplace installer would require that the chase be framed and prepped prior to the installation of the fireplace.
Painting the fireplace Do you have a tight budget? A fireplace that is made from brick can be painted whether it is in its raw brick form, or even if someone has already painted it another color. If you like the overall look of the fireplace, then painting is a good option. There are many colors available the will tie in nicely to the other colors in your room. Be sure to use paint that can hold up to high temperatures. One vendor that sells products specifically for painting a fireplace is Brick-Anew. Painting was not an option for our fireplace, as the tile hearth was chipped and needed to be replaced or repaired and we were not happy with the overall look of the fireplace. Also, there are a lot of people (including us) who don‘t really like the look of painted brick.
A fireplace can be the centerpiece of a room, breathing personality and life into an otherwise ordinary room. It draws families together for warmth, conversation, and entertainment. But fireplace mantels - more than the fireplace itself - reflect the home owner‘s unique personality and create a focal point for an entire room. The style and material of fireplace mantels - as well as the way in which they are decorated - tell a story about the homeowner and their very specific tastes. But more than anything, a mantel should be integrated into the overall design and theme of the home.
