fireplace refresh

I recently visited friends in Ottawa who purchased a 1950's bungalow and are renovating. They've done an amazing job opening up the kitchen, living and dining spaces, creating a modern and cozy living area while staying true to the mid-century vibe of the home. What a fantastic way to live in a modern and functional space without building new.

The fireplace was recently re-surfaced, and shows the amazing transformation that can happen with tiles. Well done!

    I know it really turned out amazing didn't it? A bungalow is a lovely style home with so much potential! Thanks for reading and commenting.

  3. I have been coming to your site for Electric Fireplaces a long time. They have done such a great post with it. You cannot go wrong at all. Keep up the good work.

  4. The house looks very stylish and modern, you wouldn’t think it was built in the 50’s style. I like its simple, clean look and the fireplace is a real centre piece to be admired. My brother-in-law recently updated his town house in Brisbane, and from the outside it looks like every other house on the street, but once you step through the door it is as if you are in a trendy apartment in the city!


I'd love to hear from you. Thanks for making my day!
