Regardless of the size of the project that you decide on, be sure to factor in any changes that you are planning to the living space. Are you planning on painting or getting new furniture? What is the style of your house and your existing furniture? Should the mantel be painted or are there other natural woods in the house that you would like to tie in with the fireplace? Tying the look of the fireplace into the style of your home makes it an elegant accent instead of oddity like our pink fireplace was before it was remodeled.
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.
The important thing to remember when refacing a fireplace is to understand your local code. Combustible materials such as wood mantels and paneling must be kept a certain distance from the firebox (generally 6 inches or more). The building code also limits how far these materials project from the face of the fireplace, how large the hearth extension must be, and so on. Codes vary around the country - it is important to evaluate your project relative to the codes enforced in your area.
