Kitchen

Any Ideas on how to make the fireplace appear smaller or blend in as a nice focal point?
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.
