Regardless of the size of the project that you decide on, be sure to factor in any changes that you are planning to the living space. Are you planning on painting or getting new furniture? What is the style of your house and your existing furniture? Should the mantel be painted or are there other natural woods in the house that you would like to tie in with the fireplace? Tying the look of the fireplace into the style of your home makes it an elegant accent instead of oddity like our pink fireplace was before it was remodeled.
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.
