Full House Reno: Fireplace

assistcharleston@gmail.comrenovation

When this family purchased their lovely Brookhaven home, they knew exactly what they wanted to do with the interior renovations.

We started work in their family room, focusing on the dull fireplace. The mantle was great and chunky, perfect for the family’s flat-screen TV, but the current surround of square brown tiles was not bringing the eye appeal they were hoping for. We installed a beautiful stacked rock to the exterior of the fireplace, and balanced it with a marble tile for the base.

After adding site-finished hardwoods to the bare floor, we sanded and finished the space with a rich brown stain. The natural light from the large picture windows brightened the space and played nicely off of the now white and bright fireplace.
