Brick Fireplace Makeover

Above, is a photo of a brick fireplace from floor to ceiling, common in 1970's build homes. Bookshelves were removed from both sides of the fireplace. A woodburning stove was also removed, leaving discolored brick with an unsightly appearance. After removing the bookshelves and stove, the room already feels more open.

Installing Drywall over a Fireplace

The above photo shows the removal of the bottom of the brick fireplace and the beginning installation of drywall overlaying the brick.

The fireplace is now covered with drywall exposing the existing brick which can be either can be cleaned and left exposed, tiled over or dressed with a multitude of coverings including granite or marble.

A decision was made to lay slate tile over the exposed brick. This particular tile will match a myriad of furniture styles and colors and have a modern elegant look.

It looks like you had to extend the height of your fireplace since the actual box wasn't near the floor, is that what you did? I have the same problem where the contractor stuck the fireplace a bit too high off the floor. Can you tell me how high off the floor the bottom of the fireplace is?
