I thought I would share my newest project with you in my lounge refurbishment. Unfortunately I do not have a chimney breast wall and feature fireplace in my lounge, the chimney breast wall was removed many years ago by a previous occupant of my home. I have been researching my options for some time now and have come up with a temporary solution which I think will work well. I found this charming gas bottle heater on my research on the internet which replicates a wood burning stove. It is my intention to have the hearth area tiled in a slate effect to house the stove and to give the appearance of a fireplace but at a budget cost.
Above and below are pictures of what currently lies beneath the carpet underlay...this area will be tiled to make a permanent home for the heater to stand on. Some of the original tiles are still in place, some are damaged and the remainder are missing so re-tiling is in the only option at the present time. Updated photographs of the finished project will be available upon completion.
