What could I do to makeover this fireplace? Should I leave it white and add a big mantel or paint it?

This is at night so lighting is bad.

Excuse the mess on the floor and in front of the actual fireplace,but you can get the just of it. We just done a total remodel so still have a mess.

    It's hard to see what the room looks like beyond the fire, but if the walls are also white, I would suggest a rustic beam-like mantel. And/or a large painting as wide as the firebox, or a collection of 5 smaller, different sized things like baskets or mirrors with interesting shapes. These would have to be large enough to fill the space without crowding and hung asymmetrically.

    A traditional mantel might look odd against the high and wide brick expanse.

  • can't tell if it's brick. if so, maybe paint it, add a nice mantel like shown above. or tile over it, add some millwork above. examples of what you could do:
