Fireplace remodels can be accomplished using stone, wood, mosaic tiles, glass tile, mantles, concrete or paint. Budgets determine which materials to use for fireplace makeovers or additions.
Real or faux stone can be used over the front surface of the fireplace, leading up to the ceiling, to create a larger surface area for the fireplace. Glass or mosaic tile on the front of a fireplace helps create colorful centerpieces or accent pieces in a room. A wooden mantle or built-in shelves around the fireplace add more display space for knick-knacks and create a rustic feel. Concrete facilitates an industrial look for a modern home. The most budget-friendly option for a fireplace remodel is a coat of paint over existing brick.
