Metal Beauty

Contractor and designer Chip Wade of Elbow Room replaced this family's dated brick fireplace with a metal surround for a sleek look.

Before: Dark and Dreary

The brick fireplace in this drab living room took over the space. The homeowners wanted something fresh and modern.

Fireplace Adds Height

HGTV fan Remodelando la Casa wanted to add height to her living room, so she extended her fireplace mantel to the ceiling. She kept the mantel accessories to a minimum to open up the space, but she added a signature piece of art as a bold focal point.

Before: Cramped and Nonfunctional

HGTV fan Remodelando la Casa's living space wasn't a comfortable place to hang out because of the cramped space and outdated furniture.

Before: Bedroom Eyesore

This bedroom had no design element, including the bland fireplace.

Nautical Inspiration

Designer Emily Henderson of Secrets From a Stylist chose a concrete fireplace surround for a rustic look. She hung a Cub Scout diagram above the fireplace and chose an ocean blue color for a nautical look.

Before: Small and Bland

The homeowners wanted their fireplace to be a focal point in their living room, but the fireplace was too small. Nothing in the space coordinated, preventing it from having any design aesthetic.

Fireplace Wall

The designers at b+g design created the illusion of more space by stretching the fireplace from one wall to the other. A Louise Nevelson sculpture conceals a flat-screen TV above the fireplace and adds a visual effect.

Before: Too Much White

The white tile surround of HGTV fan katylady09's living room was straight from the '90s. Its all-white look did nothing for the neutral space.

Chic Neutral

HGTV fan katylady09 kept the space neutral, but she refreshed it with a contemporary tile fireplace surround and a sleek mantel.

Before: A Brick Wall

HGTV fan fjames74 didn't know how to deal with the entire wall of brick in his living room. It made the space feel smaller and outdated.

A Modern Twist

White paint instantly adds a modern touch to RMS user HGTV fan fjames74's living room. The stainless steel fireplace surround enhances the contemporary look.

Before: No Distinct Style

The homeowners wanted to turn their drab living space into the ultimate master suite. The outdated fireplace didn't blend with the design style they had in mind.

Handmade Tile

House Crashers host Josh Temple of installed a handmade tile fireplace surround that acts as the focal point of the new master suite. It's so intricate that it needs only a simple sunburst mirror to dress up the fireplace wall.

Before: Too Bare

The wall behind the fireplace was too bare and made the space feel uninviting.

Custom Cabinetry

Instead of remodeling the fireplace, the designers at b+g design installed custom cabinetry for a completely remodeled look. They incorporated vibrant red accents to counterbalance the traditional architecture.

Before: Unsightly Brick

The bulky brick fireplace surround made it difficult for HGTV fan Renovatrix to decorate her living space.

A Traditional Look

HGTV fan Renovatrix wanted an antique look, so she replaced the brick with an intricate mantel she found online. Bronze accents complete the traditional look.

Before: Mismatched Furnishings

The homeowners collected the furnishings in their living space over time, but nothing coordinated.

Modern White Marble Surround

Designer Elizabeth Gordon incorporated cool blues and greens to mimic the adjacent garden. She replaced the fireplace surround with white marble to create a striking contrast with the home's Neo-Colonial architectural style.

Parlor Panache

It's a French flashback to the 30's and 40's when entertaining guests was done in impressive and luxurious parlors. Josh Temple enhances the usability of this living room and dining room by creating two sophisticated areas. First, for the living room, is an inviting cinematic sitting space featuring a fireplace accentuated by thin brick veneer and a 60-inch TV, art deco niches with a vertical aquarium backdrop, and chesterfield seating. For the dining room, there's a banquette built into a pony wall with ironwork detailing, a bar cabinet and draft tower unified with tile en pointe and sculptural spindles, a reclaimed table made from original flooring, and a hand painted silhouette of a French 75 field cannon.

One area of the room is dedicated to the bar, with a long table that lights up, a back bar with beer tap and a barn wood ceiling soffit. The other side of the room turns into a cozy hangout with a sectional, custom coffee table, huge TV and warm carpet to make the once cold basement a warm inviting space.

Dividing the Family Room

Josh finds a young LA couple that have a family room issue. The space is pretty large, but serves as everything from space for the kids to play to office to hangout for darts night with the boys. Seeing a real need for direction, Josh and the House Crashers crew first tear off all of the paneled walls and add hardwood flooring. Next the space gets divided using first a gigantic door with a distressed Union Jack flag on one side and cork board on the other. Then the rest of the room divider is custom built using huge basket weave patterned modular puzzle pieces. In addition to new furniture, lighting, paint, storage cabinets, and massive desk space, Josh also designs and builds a custom bar height table distressed with blow torches. Speechless is one of the only words the homeowners can come up with when they get to the final reveal of two completely new spaces.
