We hear it all the time here at Tri County Hearth & Patio Center: “I’m not happy with how my fireplace looks, but I don’t have the time/budget to replace it or reface it.”
Your fireplace is a natural focal point in your home, so being unhappy with a fireplace tends to make us feel unhappy about the space itself. Don’t worry, though — even if you can’t do a full fireplace reinvention right now, we can help you give it a makeover with some well-chosen accessories.
Problem: Your Fireplace Isn’t Putting Its Best Face Forward
We come across a lot of homeowners who feel frustrated with a dingy fireplace or just don’t get the wow factor they want.
Sometimes that disappointment comes from a perfectly serviceable but basic-looking shelf mantel. A new mantel can completely change the look of your fireplace, turning a run-of-the-mill appliance into something that feels pulled out of a luxury hotel or a cozy rustic cabin. Tell us about your taste, and we’ll show you a Grand Mantel or J.C. Huffman mantel that makes the bold statement you’re looking for.
In a lot of other cases, time and use has just taken its toll on a fireplace, leaving its face looking down and drab. When you’re not in a position to replace or reface the fireplace, new fireplace doors or a new screen can make a big difference on the appliance’s first impression.
We carry Thermo-Rite glass doors that can fit masonry and zero-clearance fireplaces, and a variety of Stoll doors for zero clearance fireplaces. Once installed, these can totally renew the look of your appliance, adding old-world iron charm or the brightness and boldness of brass or steel, in lots of different shapes and sizes. Talk to us about your appliance and what you do and don’t like, and we can show you how a set of doors that will bring it a new life.
Problem: You Just Want A Change And A Fresh Look
A new fireplace screen is a really easy and affordable way to add some fresh style to a fireplace. Tri County Hearth & Patio Center has an array of Pilgrim Screens — everything from sleek and sophisticated styles to more ornate ones. You only need to place your screen and admire the look — it’s hard to get easier than that. (That screens add protection from sparks and ash getting out of the fireplace is a great bonus, too.)
If you’ve been feeling unhappy with your fireplace, give Tri County Hearth & Patio Center a call — we’d love to help you love it again!
