Transformation Tuesday: 5 Fireplace Facelifts

Chris Loves Julia

If you’re lucky, your old fireplace is full of charm. But more often, old fireplaces kill a space. They are major focal points in a room, and when they are bad they can make an entire home feel dirty and dated. For those of you looking for inspiration, we’ve found five transformative fireplace facelifts. From simple DIY paint jobs to more major relocations, there are ideas for every budget. Take a look!

Remove Dated Molding

Clients often feel tied to woodwork, but trim from the 1980’s and 90’s is very defining. Create a more modern look by removing old fireplace surrounds and opting for a cleaner, more understated look. We are in love with this Modern Classic fireplace design by Jean Stoffer Design.

Relocate

Yes, it’s an expense but sometimes reworking the layout makes all the difference. This beautiful double-sided fireplace now separates the living and dining spaces without closing them off, while a full window wall where the fireplace previously sat floods the space with light.

Plaster

Stone elements can help create the trending layered organic look that everyone is loving right now. Consider keeping your old stone fireplace and simply revamp it. Adding plaster to old rock updates the space with a fresh white-washed look without sacrificing the rustic vibe.

Tile

Tiling your fireplace is a beautiful way to update it while adding color and pattern. We love a rustic cement or hand-fired tile in a Modern Farmhouse or Spanish Modern remodel. For a more traditional look, consider marble.

Cement and Wood

Painting old brick is the simplest fix for a cleaner look, but we also love this equally easy cement update. Read how Boxwood Avenue created this organic modern fireplace update using cement and wood here.
