The A+ team keeps tackling new projects! We love completing custom kitchens and bathrooms, but we also enjoy changing it up from time to time – time to install a new brick fireplace! We completed a bathroom renovation, kitchen renovation and a large deck for this client in the past. This time around, they contacted us to renovate their front room. We removed an old wood burning stove and large brick hearth to add some much needed floor space to the room. Our client’s home is nestled in a beautiful country setting, so keeping a fireplace was a must. We removed the old laminate flooring and the stone from the old stove wall. Let’s look at the old space:
Our client desired to still have a fireplace, but wanted to modernize the space a bit. To accomplish this, we framed an enclosure to house a vent-less electric fireplace to alleviate the need for the large brick hearth. The home owner chose a beautiful retro brick color that offered a clean, updated look. We also installed an outlet above the mantel for a future television to be mounted. Once we completed the fireplace and the new vinyl plank flooring, the room provided a completely new feeling. The great feature of an electric insert is the ability to have the fire on without producing heat, providing an amazing ambiance to any room.
While not a huge renovation, the results added a big difference. We have thoroughly enjoyed renovating this clients home over the years, and we hope they have received as much satisfaction with the results as we have.
