Does Your Fireplace Need a Facelift? It’s Makeover Time! By Rachel Cronin

Fireplaces can add personality and warmth to any room. If they are neglected, however, they’ll draw unwanted attention to that very same area. Whether you want to modernize the fireplace or just give it a few touch ups, making over the fireplace can transform a room from drab to fabulous instantly. Before you start on your fireplace revolution, be sure to mark any painted areas off with painting tape and put down a plastic drop cloth to cover the floor. Once the area surrounding the fireplace is covered properly, you are ready to dive in!

Remove Grime

Prior to beginning any major projects on your fireplace, you will need to remove any soot buildup. First, sweep out the fireplace with a small broom to remove any debris and coal dust. To remove buildup off of the brick, spray an oven-cleaning agent on the grimy areas and let the product soak in before scrubbing the area with warm soapy water. Let the area dry completely and vacuum any fallen debris before moving on.

87721.25.10.014 & 15 Fireplace Facelift filler.indd 1

Remove old paint or finish

If you would like to deepen your fireplace makeover, you may choose to remove an older paint or finish on the bricks. This step should definitely be considered for chipping and peeling paint, which is not only unattractive but also produces paint chip litter in and around the fireplace. After you have cleaned the fireplace of any soot or debris, use a paint stripper to remove unwanted paint. With this product and a little elbow grease, you can restore your fireplace back to its original glow.

2017-11-28 3:13 PM


15

Find a Mason

After you have analyzed your fireplace foundation, you may have decided to contact a mason to aid in the structural integrity. In other situations, you may choose to contract a mason to install a stone veneer or simply replace a few crumbling bricks. No matter what your reason is, choosing a mason to assist with a fireplace makeover can save you time and stress. Leaving the more tedious jobs to the experts also ensures the safety and reliability of the final product, and can ultimately save you money should a DIY foundation repair go awry.

Replenish Mortar

If the foundation of the fireplace appears to be in good condition but the mortar needs some touching up, consider adding grout filler to these areas. To match the mortar, try using a chisel to chip off a small sample. This sample can be taken to your local home improvement store to find a grout that matches the mortar. When choosing your grout, pick one that is fire resistant. Prior to applying the grout, be sure that the area has been recently vacuumed. For a clean look, spread the product with a tuck-point trowel, and let the mortar dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Make Additions

Consider adding components to your fireplace, such as fireplace doors, a screen or a mantel. Doors and screens are particularly helpful if you notice soot buildup on the face of the fireplace. If your fireplace is lacking a mantel, consider adding a floating mantel shelf, which is available in store or online. You may choose to add a DIY project by simply drilling a finished wood block into the wall above the fireplace.

87721.25.10.014 & 15 Fireplace Facelift filler.indd 2

(Re)decorate the bricks

Whether you have stripped an old paint off of the bricks or are looking to touch up the unpainted bricks, adding some color can bring life back to dull bricks. Fortunately, you have multiple options for every paint project. For a quick and easy job, you may choose to do a simple clear gloss coat, or to use a paint color that matches the room. To rejuvenate faded bricks, there is also the option of painting a concrete stain directly onto each brick. While concrete stains or multiple paint colors on the fireplace bricks are more time consuming, they often offer additional depth and detail that one gloss or color may provide. After you have completed painting, spread clear masonry sealer over all of the bricks and wait until the product is completely dry before moving on. Applying the sealer is an important step in the process, as it protects the hearth from environmental damages, makes the area easier to remove soot, and provides a shiny finish to your fireplace.

Accessorize the Surroundings

Pull up the tape and drop cloth and pack up the painting tape, it is time accessorize your fireplace! If there is a mantel, add or swap out the current accessories for a fresher look. Simple decorations, such as candles, vases, and centerpieces can add a chic appeal. Another simple yet dramatic piece to consider is wall art to hang directly above or around the fireplace. After you have added your finishing touches with the decorations, you can enjoy your newly made fireplace!

PATTERNED TILE DESIGNS TO INSPIRE YOUR NEXT PROJECT BY RACHEL COLLAR If you are looking for a project to change up any room in your home, consider taking on a project with patterned tile. While the dramatic visual impact is a fantastic reason to add patterned tile, added value and ease of cleaning are also enticing motivation to add these ideas to your to-do list. With many styles, textures, and tiling patterns to choose from, tiling is a fun way to spice up any room of your house. Check out these inspirational ideas and hit up your local home store or specialty tile retailer to design your own tile masterpieces.

MAKE A SPLASH IN THE KITCHEN Add a backsplash between your counter and cabinets, or take on a smaller weekend project by just adding tile to the back of the sink. Try slate or subway tile arranged in interesting patterns, or go old school with a cement printed variety to customize a look that is vintage chic. The backsplash in the kitchen has the added benefit of being easy to clean and prohibits bacterial growth. Most importantly, adding tile anywhere in your kitchen will elevate the entire space and add value to your home.

STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN Adding mosaic tiles to your stair case is an inspired way to add visual interest to an otherwise forgettable area. Try framing out the face of the stairs with trim and choose a bright and fun pattern to add whimsical detail. You could alternate contrasting tiles on each stair or choose or go for the uniform look.

SHOWERED WITH STYLE Though the bathroom is an obvious place to start with a tile project, do not rest on the tried and true traditional tile ideas of yesteryear. In fact, the shower area is an excellent place to splurge on unique and high-end tile because such a small amount can be used. A garden tub wall also holds potential for dramatic innovation. If you are conserving cash, try using a less expensive base tile, and trim the area out with printed porcelain or concrete tiles. Do you want to take on the whole bathroom? Black and white vintage is making headlines in design journals as the new direction for the bathroom floors!

NO COMMITMENTS If you are feeling inspired by this article but you are not ready to commit, indulge your tile envy by creating a tile mosaic art piece that will bring in the look without any permanency. Using a small piece of plywood, apply trim and fill in with the tile of your choice. The board can be secured to your wall for an artistic mosaic touch in any room.

A MARVELOUS MASHUP If you are feeling innovative, take a page from the Designer’s handbook and tile your floor out in an irregular pattern to meet your hardwoods. This unfinished yet stylish look is sure to make for a unique space that feels like a mix between Tuscan ruins and a downtown loft. Hexagon tiles and terracotta prints are excellent choices for this mashup. Sources: www.tileshop.com, www.pinterest.com, www.domino.com
