I need to redesign our fireplace. We were thinking of hiring someone to do a floor to ceiling stackstone/legdestone and putting a mantel shelves which would cost around $2K. But wifey wanted to change the 10 yr old carpet to hardwood as well which is more than $2k materials alone. Now we were just thinking or replacing the tile surrounds around the fireplace with maybe slate and do the hardwood floors. I am just wondering of what would that look like or stick to the plan which may take us a while to save for the project. Your thoughts are appreciated.
