Fireplace ideas

2 months ago

Interested in views about whether and how we should paint or tile/surface the fireplace surround. A major redo is not in the cards. Some background:

The entry of our house is both a foyer and a game room. It may be surprising, but tons of people come into our house and don’t even notice the pool table - we intentionally oriented the rug and entry table for that reason.

The wall to the left (with the mirror) will soon get the wallpaper pictured below. The main photo is taken from the center of the entry door - and if it seems like the fireplace falls halfway between both the “foyer” and the “game room” area.

So - do we paint/resurface the face of the fireplace? And if so, ideas? Or do we leave it as is since it spans both “rooms”?
