Fireplace - beach house
pdeltondo
January 22, 2013
Looking to completely remodel my fireplace in my living room. The living room is the first room once you enter the house and a focal point in this room. The hardwood floors are not in yet but will be a cherry hardwood floor (see photo). Should I do tile or stacked stone is the first question and second is should I just do an inner lining with the tile / stacked stone and a mantle /hearth or bring the tile/stacked stone to the ceiling. Thanks

Most beach houses I've been in have sandy colored floors. For a casual look stacked stone all the way up the wall. A wood mantel and tile surround would be more formal. your choice depends on the style you like.

With you dark floor, I think I'd do stacked stone on all of it, with a modern "floating" mantle that complements your wood floor. Here is a stacked stone, but how about wrapping the mantle on on three sides? But, after looking...is the "back" wall bare? Can you sheetrock that? Or, will that be stone too?

i think that you should go with a lighter floor. I cant really tell but the walls look average height, so a dark red-toned wood would really take away length of the ceilings. And I would do a traditional white sculpted wood. Just like the photo below.
