Outdoor Fireplace Design

While completely renovating his living room and kitchen, customer Scott Tomlinson needed a DIY solution to cover his outdated brick fireplace. Been wanting to do something with our fireplace…this may be the inspiration I needed to commit to! Our design team is experienced at helping our customers match new stone or woodwork to the existing structure making the renovation seamless. Necessary Improvements & Wish List: Make a list of what needs to be done and what you’d like to do. If your fireplace doesn’t work, or there are structural issues, these will need to be the top priority for your remodel.

In building or remodeling a fireplace it is extremely important that materials be installed properly. 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.

Best time of year to do this project: This is a year-round project, but if you’re considering adding hardwood to a room or doing anything to the walls, including painting, it’s best to do the fireplace first. In addition to facing on the wall around a fireplace opening, wood-burning fireplaces require a non-combustible hearth that extends outward 18 to 20 inches in depth from the fireplace and 8 or more inches to either side of the fireplace opening.fireplace remodelfireplace remodel

Patterns and designs can adorn the stone, even cutting out the homeowner’s country, state or county of birth carved out of the stone pieces. From conception to construction and everything in between, a professional will be the most useful tool during a re-facing of a fireplace.

The design pro and blogger transformed her dark and dated fireplace into something bright and beautiful by whitewashing the brick. If your fireplace is operating great, then your focus would be on the aesthetics of the hearth. Now, almost ready for homeowners to move-in, the new Fireplace (featured above) showcases simple yet stunning floor to ceiling stacked stone with a cedar beam mantel and leaves no chance of going unnoticed.fireplace remodel
