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.
What makes the rock fireplace designs attractive is their flexibility. Whether you have a traditional or modern interior design theme, it can be a beautiful addition to your home space. You don‘t even have to try to adhere to the straight line concept when using rocks because you can place them together without always going straight and still create a beautiful fireplace.
The Victorian architect William Burges reveled in the middle ages and he had the privilege of designing the amazing fireplace in the medieval great hall at Cardiff Castle. The stone over-mantle represents the Cardiff Castle itself and the Earl of Gloucester is shown riding out to war through the castle gates, to a fanfare of trumpets from the battlements above. The scene was colourfully painted in natural colours.
