Fireplaces can add so much to a room, but only if they are done right.
This large room had a small fireplace that was dwarfed by the size of the room that you can see in this 'before' picture.
By raising the fireplace, adding a custom mantel and topper with accent lighting and stone hearth, this fireplace was transformed into the focal point of the room.
For added functionality, behind the glass doors beneath the hearth houses the stereo and DVD units that are connected to the TVand is also storage for DVDs and CDs.
The customer found a mantel design from a magazine and I was able to duplicate the design to the exact profile.
This one is in a large commercial setting on a corner wall, making very difficult angles for the mantel.
