Valeria Fiorentino Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:51:59. 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.

You can easily adjust the heat rate as per your requirements. But you need to understand its functioning beforehand. Most of the heaters come with a specific warranty. You need to look for such options all the time.
Nunzia Beneventi Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:58:55. 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.
Gilda Napolitano Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:57:46. 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.
Roberta Trentino Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:59:01. 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.

Especially for those who live in very rural areas, a fireplace can be a potentially incredible investment if you have the means to gather your own wood. Heating your house doesn‘t have to cost money - if you have the motivation, you can trade a little hard work for some heat.

Isotta Milani Fireplace, 2018-02-10 00:54:40. 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.
