When you are redesigning your living room it is important to consider not only the furniture and décor but also the fireplace. Some fireplaces can grow tired and outdated over the years. This can really let down a room no matter how much money you spend on redecorating. A newly updated fireplace can add a lot of charm to any room, but it is also a functional part of your house.
This can be as simple as adding a new mantel or stone surround to transform a room and give it a whole new feel. A well-designed fireplace surround can update a room and make it feel more current. There are many different fireplace styles available today, so you will have plenty of choices when it comes to updating your room. You can choose from replica Victorian fireplaces through to modern minimalist designs. These can provide a focal point to your room and enhance the overall style. A typical fireplace update starts at $1,500, and will update your entire room!
Where to begin with your fireplace renovation?
The first step to renovating your fireplace is to gather some inspiration, you can do this by visiting websites such as Houzz or Pinterest. When looking at inspiration, start looking the right team to help you bring this inspiration to reality. At Excel Builders, we not only custom build, we also have experienced designers on staff to work with you on fine tuning your ideas into a one of kind design made for your home.
If the main firebox is still in good working order, then you could save some money and just update the mantel, surround and hearth. If you have a gas or electric firebox that is not working, we can help you with swapping it out for a new insert.
