Want modern treatment that's easy to revert to brick

essdanaDecember 26, 2011

Is there a treatment that won't be too hard to remove if I or subsequent homeowner wants to revert to the brick? I know that paint is extremely difficult, and my taste runs contemporary anyway. I have a marble mantle with grey veining that I'd like to use. I was thinking of dark grey/black slate for the surround. Again, what would be involved in removing tile, i.e. what level of difficulty?

I also am leaning towards removing the bookcases; however this is a rental property and my contractor thinks I should leave them. If I do I'd stain them a darker color as I think they look dated.

Thanks in advance for the opinions!
