Choosing a painting color for a fireplace

by Resh

I have a red brick fireplace that is very old and I need to paint it.

My living room is beige in color so what color do you think I should paint the fireplace.


Hi,

Your color choices are vast and it would be very difficult for me to choose just one. Color selection depends not only on your personal preferences but said colors would also have to flow with other items in your living room.

Keep in mind too that since you live in a very old home selecting an historic or vintage color would probably be your best bet.

Some paint stores do have specific historical colors for your color selection. So with that said, you should take a sample of your wall color and room pictures to a few paint stores. Once there, you should easily be able to find a coordinating color, or two, for your fireplace project.
