A fireplace can be a real asset in a house or an apartment as a real plague for your interior decoration. Put away the trinkets and veils that try to hide it and give your fireplace a makeover!
Here are some decorative tips to enhance your fireplace.
Makeover a fireplace with paint
Oh yes ! A fireplace can be painted! If you want to makeover an overly drab fireplace, if it doesn't match the look of your living room, fireplace mantel brackets can change that.
Phase one: clean your chimney thoroughly. Degrease, rub, remove soot using bleach, alcohol or black soap to respect the stone. A clean fireplace is painted more easily so pamper it!
Phase two: the fireplace makeover starts here! Apply an undercoat followed by a coat of glycerophthalic or heat-appropriate paint if the chimney is still in use. Choose the color according to the rest of your room: green for a Zen living room, gray for a designer room, pink for a romantic atmosphere ...
Sentence three: let it dry well and add a layer if necessary. Don't be afraid to be generous in painting! Dressing up a fireplace with paint is very easy; it's up to you to choose the color to blend it with your interior!
Express fireplace makeover with accessories
A fireplace does not only serve as a support for unnecessary objects. You can turn it into a real asset for your decoration by taking care to choose suitable accessories such as brackets. A fireplace makeover makes it possible to modernize it.
Goodbye, therefore, pockets, ashtrays, bank statements and other rubber bands or paper clips that collect dust on the edge of your fireplace! Clean up and choose the decoration carefully.
