Suggestions for beautiful bricked in fireplace in kitchen
jenigsmithFebruary 3, 2013
We just finished a kitchen renovation and need help figuring out how to use the space in front of a beautiful, old bricked in fireplace. We want it to be the focal point of the room. Art work? Butcher's block? Pot rack? It is 14' from floor to ceiling. Help, please!

There are some fun metal wall sculptures out there. Try a Google search. You may even find one in stainless steel.

I think it would be cool to dig in in a little and add some shelves for recipe books and thing like that

I'd love to convince my hubby to dig out an alcove as a shelf ;)

I'd hang a beautiful tray on it. Have you thought about adding more cabinets above your existing ones? Glass front ones would be nice.

how about a beautiful collection of tin tole trays...... if you go with the trays (which are usually not too heavy) you can probably hang them from removable adhesive hooks, and the size of the trays would allow you to use multiple hooks for strength. You can also buy adhesive plate hangers at the Container Store to attach to the back of the trays. Together these products would guarantee that you wouldn't have to put holes into the brick. I would love to see black trays with fruit arrangements, they would play up your black counters and warm colors........I recently considered using them for a project in my house and found a ton of nice old trays on Ebay......It's a great feature, have fun with it!

It would have been nice if the black (?) counter could have continued, but narrowed to follow the outside line, all the way across the front of the brick with black corbel type brackets. Higher above that I would hang two tall wooden exterior shutters tight together to appear to be closed, painted your wall color or black gloss. You could add black shutter hinges (they sell fake ones in shutter department).

Maybe it's because I have kids but I am imagining a large nicely framed chalkboard where you could write messages, draw etc.

I see a pot rack with well-used professional pots hung so lots of the wall shows through.
