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.

In working-class houses the fireplace was plain, but the over-mantle was very ornamental and made of wood, which was stained or painted. The industrious middle classes were able to mass-produce designs that would have only been previously available to the wealthy, and thus they had impressive fireplaces in the drawing and dining rooms - fireplaces presented in other rooms too, such as bedrooms, but these were on a much smaller scale. The wealthy were lucky enough to be able to choose any decorated designs that appealed to them.

But also like gas fireplaces, electric fireplaces do not provide a real wood burning fire. Another question that needs to be asked is where in your home do you want to position your fireplace? The best placement is near an outside wall with ample room for framing of a chimney chase to house the unit and venting components. For installation in Canada, the chase would need to be insulated, vapour barriered, and drywalled in order to meet building code requirements. Each fireplace comes with an installation manual that details the framing and installation requirements. Typically, a fireplace installer would require that the chase be framed and prepped prior to the installation of the 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 scene was colourfully painted in natural colours.
