One of the most popular elements for remodeling I have found is a fireplace mantel and surround. In this focal fireplace by architect Jim Rill, Pennsylvania flagstone distinguishes the fireplace surround and floor, and the mantel and trim are made of clear fir to complement the mission-style furniture and exposed beam ceiling beautifully. This room’s dreary decor carried over to its very boring fireplace This room was in desperate need of a redesign and a fresh look.
Plus, the traditional-style fireplace insert with the large stones looks out of place in this contemporary setting. When the homeowners decided to finish the room, they thought installing a fireplace between the two large windows would be a perfect addition to the room.
The brick you now see around the fireplace undoubtedly is bearing on a masonry foundation, or it could be on a concrete slab. For example, Custom Masonry & Fireplace Design can completely remodel your old brick fireplace with a variety of materials such as stone, tile, marble and stucco.
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.
Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to remedy this because a fireplace remodel is completely possible as a DIY project. We have a great selection of stone, including cultured stone to choose from so you will have many choices to get the exact look you desire.
