Our own project – Built in flat screen tv and cultured stone fireplace

We love our home, especially the main floor – but, we found that we weren’t spending as much time as we liked in our living room. The reason? Our television and fireplace were in the family room on the lower level (basement). We decided that we wanted to bring our tv and fireplace upstairs, and chose to transform an interior wall in our living room. No tearing down of walls! No costly chimney’s required! No venting! No damage or changes needed to our existing hardwood floors! Read on to find out how we did it…and how you can add luxury to any wall or room in your home too!

What you will notice from this picture is that we decided to add the feature wall to an interior wall in our house. This is possible because the fireplace we chose is an electric model – complete with 3 heat settings, 3 flame settings, a fan to throw the heat into the room, and (always a bonus) remote control! This unit simply plugs into a regular outlet. Plug in. Instant ambiance! The new technology out there makes it hard to distinguish between a gas fireplace and an electric fireplace.

  1. Hi,
    Beautiful work! I’m wondering how easily the electric fireplace could be replaced in the event of a breakdown?

    • Hey Chuck – thanks your comment. The electric fireplace could easily be removed and replaced with another if need be. The stone is built around it allowing for easy removal and installation of a replacement. I suppose it could happen, although I have never heard of one breaking down!

      Cheers.
