Corner Fireplace--Need help!
This fireplace is part of an addition built in 1960. It is a corner FP, so it is open of 2 sides. It sits in the corner of the room. It has a floating cement hearth.
We do not like anything about this FP, but we do like having one in the room.
Is it possible to:
1. Make it only open in the front?
2. Build a "facade" to make it look like it is more traditional, with the opeing in the middle of a more symmetrical FP, with 18" on each side?
3. Include this FP as part of a wall of built-ins, housing a TV, media components, and storage?
Right now it is just an ugly spot for storage of toys, etc, not to mention a HUGE cold air wind tunnel in the winter.
Help! Ideas? Suggestions?
Thanks so much!
