Remodeling Options for Fireplaces

Remodeling Options for FireplacesWhen you wish to make a change to the appearance of your fireplace, you have many options. You can choose from those that are temporary and more easily changed, or you may prefer a more permanent transformation for your fireplace.

Permanent changes often involve replacement of the mantel, surround, and hearth. You may even want to add an overmantel for an extra touch of elegance that will fully reach to the ceiling. If you are thinking about upgrading one of these items, make sure your replacements meet local codes for the proper dimensions and materials.

Because the fireplace mantel, surround, and hearth are meant to last for many years, many people choose a temporary remodeling option. These involve switching out decorations or display items as you wish, which can be based on a theme, such as by season or holiday. Displaying garlands, crafts, and other small items on or around the mantel are popular choices that are easily changed whenever the mood strikes. If you are going to hang something near the mantel, either attach the decor to the wall near the mantel or have a professional install the proper hardware to avoid damaging your mantel.
