Updating exterior of brick fireplace

Scroll down to see some fun before and after pictures. It made the room feel small because of its mass and the fireplace lacked style. The mass was reduced by using textured sheetrock above the fireplace mantel to match the existing walls.

This cinder block fireplace in a downstairs family room had been stained over time and was in need of a face-lift. A small mantel was added to the fireplace to update it and tie in with the crown moulding.

Tile should not be laid directly over a painted brick on a fireplace.The remodeled fireplace design matched the custom cabinets and bookshelves in the room.The surround was faced with used brick and the rest of the fireplace was paneled. In modern fireplaces, most of the surfaces are just facades covering a cinderblock or brick fireplace.This fireplace design was out of proportion - the sides were too narrow and the top too deep. The client was happy with the painted brick surface of their fireplace, so this fireplace was remodeled with a simple mantel and pilasters designed to bring the fireplace into proportion.This was another painted brick fireplace that needed to be remodeled because of the way it dominated the room.

The result was quite elegant and looked like it had been there for 100 years (Never mind that the house is only 50 years old). In remodeling the fireplace, the surface can be stripped off.
