Changing the look of a fireplace involves more planning than most people realize. If you want to give your fireplace a facelift and revitalize the look and feel of your hearth, contact us today. Even the fireplace has a touch of modern with it’s straight lines and smooth surface, but it’s softened by the traditional mantel. A quick search on shows that out of 1,588 homes for sale in Overland Park, 1,206 have at least one fireplace.
An overmantel is actually just a second mantel installed above the main fireplace mantel, built to either identical dimensions or sometimes narrower and either shorter or taller than the main mantel below. If you enjoy vintage looks, another popular look is adding reclaimed lumber to create a vintage fireplace.

Tonya and Ross’ fireplace had good bones, but the mantel and brick made it look tired and dated. I painted the area around the fireplace box with Olympics Flat latex Zero Voc paint in Black Magic and the rest of the fireplace in Cloud White (flat latex) a Benjamin Moore color.
Before making cuts, I laid out the tiles around the fireplace to get the configuration right (although it appears an extra corner piece snuck into the photo…hmmm). When we had our house built (almost 10 years ago) I was never a big fan of our plain, builder’s grade fireplace.
