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HGTV fan Remodelando la Casa's living space wasn't a comfortable place to hang out because of the cramped space and outdated furniture.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 It made the space feel smaller and outdated.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 The outdated fireplace didn't blend with the design style they had in mind.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.

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.

Cigar Bar Garage Conversion

Edwin lives in a house where every room is taken by other folks and pets. The workout room belongs to his girlfriend, one bedroom is used for the dog, there's even a guest room solely dedicated to out of town company. Josh Temple is about to change it all for the aspiring rapper by turning the garage into a sophisticated dude den where cigar-smoking, fight-watching, card-playing, music-making fun can commence on a whim. The upscale lounge includes an over-sized triangle shelving unit framed in by a pair of cabinets featuring wire trimmed doors, a laminated front bar top that doubles as storage space for musical instruments and sound gear, a wall that hides the washer and dryer on one side and features a whopping 5 TV sets on the other, French doors that open out to the pool, soundproof cork floors, and a faux crocodile grid wall to swank up the livable space with style and comfort.

Bali Bedroom Retreat

Stylish Work and Party Garage

A diehard do-it-yourselfer turns his garage over to Josh to bring a sleek blend of work and play inside and out. The workspace begins with a folding room divider that blocks off the garage door and introduces rich wood textures. The work desk goes techy with a secret compartment to hide not one, but two computer monitors that are raised and lowered electronically. The long wall is skinned in aged metal, leading to the next gathering spot that boasts two whiskey bottle end tables, and a ceiling mounted flip down TV. As the guest list grows, revelers can spill outdoors onto the redwood deck that wraps all the way up to the fence to bring privacy and uniformity to this destination spot. A sexy U-shaped bench cozies up the conversation underneath an avant-garde pergola, creating a cabana vibe for VIP's only.
