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.
You can get your design ideas from just about anywhere. Take some time to wander through some home improvement store isles or let your fingers walk through a nice magazine. Inspiration can come from anywhere you look. A beautiful garden scape can even inspire the look. You just never know what will come up if you look at the things that surround you. You might even have a base decorative design for the room that you want your fireplace in, and you can design it to be complimentary to that design. Your imagination can come to life if you let it.
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.
