Need some ideas how to update this fireplace


I am remodeling a large portion of my house for a more modern look.
I am not sure what to do with the fireplace. As is, it will look out of place among a modern design.

Anyone have any ideas to update the look?

Need some ideas how to update this fireplace


First---The old wood mantle could be removed and sold---It has a certain charm.

Google Fireplace (images)----

Also-- John Whipple (a member here) is a fireplace specialist---See if he has any images in his profile.

If not Go to Contractor Talk and look him up----Chris Wright (another member) has some good examples of modern fireplace surrounds.
