Hi All,

Simple questions: What is your opinion of this fireplace?
What would you keep? What would you change?

Lose the hood and the fireplace screen. Cover the brick with an appropriate tile if possible. If not paint the brick for a more updated look

I would not paint the brick. WOuld rather have the essence of the brick. Painted brick in my opinion looks cheesy.

I've never had a problem with painting brick. But that's me. If you have had problems then by all means explain to the individual. I'm sorry you seem do snippy. I answered a question. That's all. I also like my response.

No need to be sorry. You like the look of painted brick. I personally do not. Matter of opinion.

Do you like brussel sprouts??

Depends on the home style. I hate the gold screen but the hood could be cool IF the home style supports it. The hood seems to me a hearth type that needs a really large fireplace like the old days. You know, a cooking fireplace.

Look at your overall home style before you make drastic changes. Print your photos on plain paper and experiment with color and/or covering up.

Like this.

Or this. Embrace that funky hood. People pay a lot for them. maybe scale up the brick to balance it.
