A basic remodel of a pre-existing fireplace can perhaps be achieved by a skilled DIY enthusiast, however if any building work is required there is a chance of running into structural issues which have to be handled by a professional. If you're lucky when you expose a boarded fireplace you might find a decent chimney breast, hearth and lintel that involves nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. However, what you'll more likely find is a patch of old, crumbling bricks that hides problems such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.

It is usually recommended to look to the experience and know-how of a certified fireplace fitter in Mountain because of the severe health and fire risks that can result from an incorrectly fitted or renovated fireplace. Ensuring that enough oxygen is available for the fire to burn efficiently is a key part of the Building Regulations for fireplaces. Deadly carbon monoxide can accumulate from an inefficiently burning fire in a poorly ventilated room.

To enable the fireplace to get enough oxygen to combust safely and efficiently all the time, it might be necessary for a professional fireplace installation engineer to install airflow vents in floor and walls. Blocked off and unused chimney flues might also need to have air vents fitted because they can trap moist air inside them causing damp to occur inside the chimney.

A trip to a fireplace showroom or a browse online will reveal the alternatives that are available for the different designs and styles of fireplaces. It is entirely possible that because of your current flue, chimney and airflow to the room, that certain fireplace designs may not be appropriate, therefore it's a good idea to follow the advice of your fireplace company with respect to this.

The all round style that you're seeking to create, your existing decor and in some situations, your home's age, will affect whether you go with an open fireplace, a wood burner or a multi-fuel stove. For instance, an inglenook fireplace can be a wonderful backdrop for a classic cast iron wood-burner stove, which highlights its character and reflects the heat into the room.
