Are brick fireplaces out of style?
We are building a new home that will have a gas fireplace and we are trying to figure out the design. We definately want a raised hearth and are leaning towards using the same brick we will have on the exterior of our home (tannish color) with a wooden mantle and wooden legs, most likely painted white. It seems like many people are painting over their brick or using stone tiles rather than brick.
Anyone have thoughts on this?
