4 Affordable Ways to Upgrade Your Fireplace

The fireplace typically serves as the centerpiece for your living room area. It’s the perfect spot for you, your friends and family to gather and get comfortable. It’s a good idea to upgrade your fireplace because an appealing fireplace can grab attention and tie a room together. Today, Handyman Connection® of Alpharetta discusses a few affordable fireplace upgrade ideas:

  1. An Affordable Way to Whitewash Your Fireplace – Try making your fireplace look brighter by brushing white paint with an eggshell finish on small sections of it. Next, wipe the fireplace down with rags to remove most of the paint. Do this two times and then use a medium grit sanding sponge to sand all over the bricks. This will lead to a bright fireplace with a rich texture.

  1. Consider Using Your Fireplace as a Backdrop – The fireplace is the perfect spot for tightly grouped collections of decorative materials or artwork. Don’t worry if you don’t have art. To decorate your fireplace on a budget, buy some art books, cut out the pages, and then frame them. Then surround and decorate the fireplace with the framed art.

  1. Paint the Fireplace – You can also turn the fireplace into a piece of art instead. Consider painting murals above the fireplace and then decorating the interior. You can also try perspective tricks using artwork, or painting a log on the interior, so the fireplace always looks busy even when there’s no fire.

  1. Affordable Marble Look Fireplace – This is a good idea If your fireplace incorporates dated tile. Consider cutting marble-looking adhesive paper into squares and then covering the existing tile. This can greatly upgrade the appearance of your fireplace without you having to undertake an expensive remodel.
