    just got done gutting the living room in my artex palace and i'm thinking of opening up the fireplace and "doing something" with it, so I thought i'd start a thread for a bit of inspo, and a good opportunity for y'all to show off

    We are currently doing this. We have decided with our limited time and the fact we have a 2yo we are getting a fireplace company to do it for us. More than I wanted to pay, but happy with the face a pro will be doing it and it will be done in 1-2 days. Obviously no pics yet, but when done will post some. Hopefully will be done in 3 weeks

    There's a log burner thread on here somewhere which might give you some inspiration (although will all be log burner based :p)

    I do like the look they give, but the air quality issues bother me. However a gas fired lookalike is certainly an idea

    I started with a flat wall, I knew there was a chimney in there somewhere !

    I put a gas fire in, very pleased with it.

    In the living room I use mine for AV. Got a shelf in and all the cables go up the chimney via a waste pipe for tidiness.

    Upstairs we've just got the classic decorative logs so no point at all.

    Fair enough. Other than an actual fireplace, what could "doing something" constitute in a living room?
