By using Fireplace Pebble Tiles remodeling you get an excellent opportunity to bring nature into your home design. The firebox itself is pretty straightforward, and like the hearth, generally is designed in relation to the floor. Now, there are natural gas fireplaces that can be inserted in to the mouth of a traditional fireplace. Another option that can sometimes work with the right house and the right fireplace is plastering.
The greatest element of your design style will be the hearth, surround, trim and mantel choices. Note that gas or electric Fireplaces typically usually require less facing on the wall around the opening than wood-burning fireplaces and the fireplace owner’s manual (or its manufacturer) can provide minimum clearance information.
Unlike “real” stone, cultured stone can be put on the face of a fireplace without additional support under a floor deck although some additional support is suggested on a 2 – story application. Floating fireplaces sit suspended from the ceiling and are an interesting option for homes with high ceilings or with large living spaces.
Painting was not an option for our fireplace, as the tile hearth was chipped and needed to be replaced or repaired and we were not happy with the overall look of the fireplace. Keep air inlets on wood stoves open, and never restrict air supply to fireplaces.
Get creative and have fun, combining your imagination with your own signature style, and your fireplace mantel Christmas decorations will be an important part of creating a memorable holiday experience. In modern and contemporary styled homes, fireplaces are not just for practicality.
