Outdated Brick Fireplaces 

Do you have an old brick fireplace that is looking a little outdated?

This is a kitchen and living room that I helped redesign. The fireplace, as you can see, was looking a little outdated…
Not only can the color and style of the brick become out-of-date, but so can the mantel. But a simple thing can be done to enliven an out-of-date fireplace. 
CHECK OUT WHAT WE DID TO ENLIVEN THIS FIREPLACE.

A very simple way to enliven old brick fireplaces is to fill in the mortar between the bricks. This way, the mortar becomes flush with the face of the brick. This softens the texture and makes the fireplace look a little less busy. Next, just replacing the mantel with a simple timber mantel will do wonders. These days mantels are much less decorative, but not at all less alluring.
I hope you enjoy the information in my blog! Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions! – Richard
