Here's a nice detail from a job that I am managing at the moment.
When I first met with my client, she wasn't too keen on this fireplace in her living room and I agreed with her. It didn't produce much heat and the surround was rather large, almost overwhelming for the space that it was in. In essence, we wanted to make it less of a focal point. So we got the top half chopped off, put in a new gas fire insert for better heat output and painted it white. It looks much better, don't you think?
