Hi all , just after some ideas as to what I should do with this fire place , I want to keep it but hate the brick work on it , any suggestions on how to hide or transform this fire place?
Welcome to Workshop @Scally96. It's great to have you join in the discussion. I'm sure you'll find our Workshop community members to be helpful both for this project and for many to come in future. I'm looking forward to seeing what the community comes up with.
Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.
I would paint the brick and the wood panelling white. It would transform the room.
You could also incorporate some cabinetry, like this:
I actually think it looks pretty funky. I'd just look at replacing the tiles and removing that wooden boarder/guard on the floor.
But if you did want to change it, painting it would be quick, cheap and easy. You could also paint the metalwork if its scratched. You'd just need a high heat paint like this https://www.rustoleum.com.au/product-catalog/consumer-brands/specialty/high-heat-spray
Hope all is well.
Hope you found the suggestions from community members helpful. Have you decided what you want to do and/or made any progress?
