Your fireplace is truly the heart of the room. Providing warmth and happiness to many, it is the main centerpiece, whether it is just during a larger party, or just a small family gathering. After many years, these fireplaces can start to wear and make you think about getting a new fireplace. If you are thinking of making the switch to a gas fireplace or an electric fireplace, it is a great idea to look at options. If you have a wood fireplace or a fireplace that you can not replace, as you don’t want to spend too much money, there are many inexpensive ways that you can switch this up. Let’s take a look at these revamping methods and see how you can implement them.
Paint, Tiles & Sealants: The Ultimate Inexpensive Update
Painting a Brass Surround: Painting your brass surround can be a great way to avoid replacing your entire fireplace. You will need to make sure that your paint is heat resistant, but also, you could just buy a fireplace insert instead of going through all that trouble.
Painting a Mantel: Mantels can be the perfect renovation on a fireplace. By painting this area, you can completely transform the look of the space. Just keep in mind, it does take about 3 weeks to dry, so be careful!
Retiling: Retiling can give a nice, sleek finish to your fireplace that was not there before.
Sealants: This material helps to make sure that your tiles or stones are never affected by the smoke and soot of the fireplace. By adding a sealant, you can preserve the beauty of the natural stone.
Painting Brick: Brick painting is always an option, and adding a color such as a matte black or a dark gray can really add a different layer of complexity to your living room.
