We just bought an older home and are working on a tight budget. The kitchens fireplace is the first thing you notice upon entering the room. We have toned down the dark red & cleaned up the fireplace by removing the old doors & mirror.
The fireplace sits right at the kitchen and is large. I have started to tile but stopped, concerned that it may clash with the floor if brought to the bottom.
any Ideas on how to make the fireplace appear smaller or blend in as a nice focal point? or just in general for the room?
