Barudoni Construction is known for updating and modernizing kitchen and baths efficiently and quickly. We have become so good at this that many times we can do this cheaper than modifying an existing fireplace with considerably better results. We purchased a couple of leather chairs at World Market to create a comfortable sitting area in front of the fireplace.
We have a rustic-style, mountain home… and this fireplace has never really fit in. White plaster isn’t the best choice for a fireplace anyway- it gets dirty every single time we had a fire in the fireplace… and you can see that the plaster was starting to crack along the bottom of the fireplace too.
Labor prices can also be all over the map depending on the experience of your stone contractor. Perhaps one of our most drastic transformations, the old wall was removed and a modern limestone tile fireplace with clean, crisp lines built in its place! From majestic, pre-finished mantels to stone surrounds and unique hearth designs, the possibilities are truly endless.
After all, the fireplace wall makes such a significant design statement and, I find, can really speak to the design aesthetic in other areas of the home to help balance the design and keep a flow to the overall look. Pacific Hearth & Home designs, manufactures, and installs beautiful fireplace inserts that offer all the heat and ambiance of a traditional fireplace, without the hassle of cleaning and maintaining one.
The color combination of cream-on-white left the fireplace washed out and boring. If your fireplace is still sporting the honey toned wood that was popular in the ’90s, maybe it’s time for an update! These digital tongue-in-check flames are printed on canvas and made to fit any non-working fireplace opening.
