Fireplace dilemma
sheelzJanuary 9, 2013
Need help with this feature fireplace. It is situated in our great room. The ceiling is 18 ft. We like a modern, sleek look. There will be a tv on top of the fireplace. We are undecided on high to go with the wall. Go 10 feet or go all the way to the top. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This wall does not go all the way up. Orchard Family Room A

HI -- My question to you is - why are you putting the fireplace angled into the corner ? Corner fireplaces make furniture placement more difficult . Designers don't like corner fireplaces . Anyway to answer your question I would go all the way to the top .

frame all the way up. use a slick wall finish on the sheetrock only on the section of the fireplace and paint it a darker color on walls (than the other walls in the room) then choose a solid marble or granite and cut full slab pieces for your firebox surround. No mantle No hearth

olddj22 . Thank you for your suggestions. I also like your first pic better. I would like the tv to be lower though but like the overall look.
lefty 47. The furniture placement works out well since one of the walls is also on angle creating a nice square/rectangle for furniture placement. I will post more pics to get a better sense of the entire space.
Classic designs- thank you. We also prefer a solid stone and were thinking of using a brushed granite . I'm beginning to think that framing all the way to the top is probably the best way to go and take the stone up to slightly over the height of the tv. We were thinking of recessing the tv to avoid heat damage. The tv is 60". Also the visible glass area of the firebox is 2 ft from the ground- a perfect height for when you are sitting on the sofa. The ceiling height is 19 feet. I do like the idea of of the firebox surround but wanted to do something other than a painted wall for the rest.
These are looks that we really liked but just need to figure out how to work it with our space.
