Before & After: Gorgeous Fireplace Makeovers

Share It

Having a fireplace is on the must-have list for most people I know that are house-hunting. It’s a focal point around which to anchor a room — other than a television. It welcomes conversation and encourages guests to stay a little while longer. Depending on the shape they’re in, the era they were built and the materials used, not all fireplaces are automatically cohesive in a space. While they seem untouchable and hard to transform because of their size, character or style, there are actually several ways to update and make-over such a prominent element of a space. These 10 Before & Afters showcase what some imagination can do to create cohesion between a homeowner’s style and the fireplace. –Lauren

    love these series… some of the above are amazing, 3, 5!!!! 7. only 10 seems way too dark ´after’ but also the ´befor’ looks depressing. 1 is like a modern style icon, i want to flop at that table and might never get up again!
