tear down fireplace
Hello. I am new to this forum. We have hired a very reputable interior designer and she has advised us to tear out our fireplace and sheetrock over the existing opening. The fireplace was placed in a very awkward spot making furniture arrangement and wall decorations almost impossible without looking awkward. Has anyone had experience tearing out the fireplace? I would still leave the brick on the outside of the house. Need advice is this is a good option or not. It is a woodburning fireplace and in working order but very drafty and not energy efficient.
