Hello everyone, I have a metal box wood burning fireplace in a condo I am remodeling. The last owner had a mantle and brick hearth and surround, but I want to go in a different direction. I am thinking of doing a cast concrete pad for the hearth and faux concrete for the surround. I wish the wall it was on had some dimension to it but it is just flat. Options that come to mind are a. just a surround. b. taking the surround all the way up the wall. c. using faux concrete on the whole wall and wrapping it around the corner. I'm very undecided. I'm attaching some pics of this currently boring wall. Any thoughts/advice would be greatly appreciated...thanks!
