When we moved into our new house there was a long list of work that needed be done in terms of updating and remodeling, but nothing stood out more than that ugly pink fireplace dominating the middle of our living room. It was one of our first projects and our neighbors were amazed at the difference it made in the way our house felt when you walked through the door. Since that time there have been many more fireplace remodels in our neighborhood. You can spend anywhere from $100 to $20,000 updating your fireplace, so it is best to consider both your budget and your goals.

For instance, if you have an older home with a traditional fireplace, then a mantel made from natural wood or stone would be best suited to complement the fireplace. For a more contemporary home, a sleeker wood or laminate may best offset the beauty of the fireplace and make the type of statement befitting of your home. Most fireplace mantels are built alongside the fireplace when a new home is built. When a homeowner purchases a home and wishes to change the mantel, there are a number of ways in which to go about it.
Isotta Milani Fireplace, February 08th , 2018. Consider the type of material that would be efficient as well as beautiful enough to put that perfect amount of pizazz into your living room. Sometimes you might want to use the standard brick style because it fits, but take that plain brick style and step it up a notch. You can do this by designing a layout that tells your guests that you are far from simple. Just because you want the traditional brick does not mean it has to be built traditionally. You can take any of the available materials and make almost any pattern that your mind can think up. Be creative and allow spontaneity to come into play.

Gilda Napolitano Fireplace, February 08th , 2018. Wood burning fireplaces are either listed as high efficiency, mid efficiency, and low efficiency. High efficiency units typically are meant to be burnt with the door closed and sealed. They have very low emissions which means that most of the fuel particulates are burnt and converted to flue gases. Mid efficiency fireplaces are designed more for the consumer that wants to enjoy viewing a larger fire and still maintain some of the efficiency features that wood burning offers. Typically, they can be burnt with the door open or closed and have a much larger firebox. Low efficiency units typically do not have a door that seals when the unit is burning and are strictly meant as an aesthetic addition to your home. While they do provide heat, most of the heat produced escapes up your chimney. This does however allow for a huge firebox and a great viewing area.

Gilda Napolitano Fireplace, February 08th , 2018. But what if you want a campfire to be a part of your outdoor living room? Well, this is where things get interesting. While you can build a campfire near your outdoor furniture, this can be messy and unruly at times, as anyone who has gone camping before can testify to. One option you have is buying a fire pit and loading up logs in that, however fire pits tend to waft heat in 360 degrees, and upwards. This is naturally not very advantageous if you want to provide some form of heat to your outdoor living room.

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.
