For homeowners looking to update their fireplace, they usually only consider one way to accomplish it – a fireplace remodel. While this type of project can add beauty and value to the home, it is not always feasible. Budget concerns and time constraints can play a large role in deciding whether or not this project is right for your immediate needs. Fortunately there are other budget-friendly ways to refresh the fireplace without undergoing a typical remodel.
Here are three easy fireplace upgrades to consider:
Change the Fireback – There are many decorative firebacks on the market today that can enhance both the beauty and function of an existing fireplace. Available in both contemporary and traditional styles, these firebacks help the fire burn more efficiently while adding decorative touches to the hearth.
Replace the Mantel – The mantel is often one of the main focal points of the entire space. Replacing a dated, worn piece with a new, updated one can enhance the look and appeal of the area while offering a great topper for your fireplace.
Consider the Surroundings – The area around the fireplace can help to minimize its flaws while adding warmth to a room. Adding accessories such as hearth rug and decorative wood holder can draw the attention away from your fireplace’s imperfections.
