Notes from A Maine Interior Designer-Simple Fireplace updates

Home Stager with Fiore Interiors
Tiling your fireplace surround is a little change that has a BIG impact.
It can update an older fireplace without being a large demo project, or add style to a simple existing fireplace.
glass tile with a hint of metallic
Diamond shaped travertine
classic subway tile
Most of the concepts above require a MINIMAL amount of accent tile and produce a real WOW factor. I recomend staging the fireplace with birch logs prior to the MLS photos so it looks picture perfect and communicates VALUE$ to prospective buyers.

Vanessa, the fireplace tile is an often overlooked opportunity to make a big impact.  Great examples!

I love the first one! Do you have any more pics of the whole thing? Is it reclaimed wood?
