Fireplace suggestions for great room

27 days ago

We just renovated our house by taking down the wall between the great room and the kitchen, redoing the kitchen, and replacing all floors. This included removing a 3 way fireplace in the wall between the kitchen and the great room. We now would like to put a linear electric fireplace on the wall opposite the kitchen. There will be a television above the linear fireplace where we have one now. We want open shelving on each side, thinking in white oak like the island and coffee bar in the kitchen. The great room wall where this will go is 19.5 feet. There is a challenge with the ceiling being vaulted - 10 feet at highest.


1. Should the shelves extend to each side of the room?

2. Suggestions related to fireplace extending into the ceiling?

3. Suggestions on material around fireplace - drywall?

4. Other thoughts?

The first photo is looking from the great room to the kitchen. The second photo is the wall of the great room where fireplace/tv/shelves will be.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
