Updating old tiled fireplace 18 teen sex dateing site no sign up
The whole room had recently been remodeled leaving the fireplace looking like the last vestige of the older house.It was also lacking a significant mantel, which the client found limiting.For a complete redo of a tiled fireplace including the hearth expect to pay around 00 including materials and about half that for a drywalled solution, minus electrical.Neither of the two costs would include gas/electric fireplace inserts or new screens.Since their original purpose was utilitarian, their looks were also mostly functional, not beautiful. Not so long ago I saw many of these painted over to hide the old brick.
This was another painted brick fireplace that needed to be remodeled because of the way it dominated the room.Our book on Fireplace Remodeling goes into detail on how to apply backer board to a painted brick fireplace so that you can attach the tile securely to the surface.If you would rather buy a mantel than build it, this shelf mantel is a good alternative. Take a look at our book for advice on "How to Remodel a Fireplace".The room was then painted to bring out some of the interesting colors in the tile.
