As any good designer will tell you, the fireplace is the focal point of a room. Each of these fireplaces were boring, builder spec’s that came with the house/condo and hardly worth focusing on.
New firebox inserts come in many interesting sizes now that can achieve a much larger view of the flames. Surround the firebox with a stone that is fitting to the home’s interior (marble, bluestone or black slate), create a mantle surface, add some storage, and why not celebrate the chimney with a wall covering? Now that’s a focal point in any room!
