Modernise your old Fireplace

Did you know that your old, unused fireplace can easily and cost effectively be remodelled, transforming the entire space around it?

Of course there are no limits to what we can do to make you happy but in this case, our client told us that he had not used his wood burning fireplace for years and disliked the hassle and mess associated with making a wood fire.

Our advice to him was to consider doing a flue-less gas conversion. This way he could save money using the existing wood burning fire-box structure and only need to replace the old grate with a new gas grate with a choice of a charcoal or white stone around the burner. We also felt that the face-brick fireplace would look better if it was wider and that the existing brick and wall colours made the living area too dark. 

The “After” pic shows the completed gas fireplace conversion with a white stone option and a combination of natural Travertine tile and duco sprayed Supawood front and mantel. We opted to use “lighter” colours and materials to finish off the project which has made the living area lighter and more inviting.
