A Cozy Fireplace Focal Point: Before
Who: Justin H.
Where: Carrollton, TX
I replaced the carpeting with wood floors, removed the picture frame molding and the wall paneling. Removed the popcorn ceilings and had the walls and ceiling textured. Removed the fireplace hearth, boxed in the top of the fireplace with drywall, tiled over brick with travertine tiles and added travertine to the floor in front of the fireplace. Built a custom mantel to fit around the fireplace, which is the focus of the room. Added large crown molding and 10-inch baseboard to scale in the room. Added thicker architectural door casings to scale in the room. Walls were painted a soft green to keep the room open yet cozy. All the work was done by myself except for laying the wood floors and texturing the walls and ceiling.
