Fabulous Fireplace Remodel

Posted: August 21, 2010 in Living Room

This is by FAR my favorite feature in our house and one of the main reasons we bought the house…the HUGE fireplace feature. It is the central feature to the home with the livingroom on one side and the dining room on the otherside. Here is a picture of what it looked like BEFORE the remodel:

I actually thought the fireplace was fine before (besides the fact that there was no mantel to hang stockings on for Christmas). But I’m sure glad I was talked into upgrading it! It was built out a little bit, framed with beautiful glass tile, added a nice slab of absolute granite and after trying a few different mantel options we topped it with stained concrete to match the kitchen counter color. Here it is:

And here is a close up of the mantel and tiles:

I LOVE how it turned out! What do you think? Has anyone else completed or thinking about upgrading your old fireplace? Do tell…
