Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

You've asked a pretty broad question regarding covering your brick fireplace, so you can get a broad array of choices.

If it's an active fireplace, you are limited to obviously non-wood products. Opting for tile is a great choice in your situation, mosaic and natural stone are just a few of many choices you can use.

Did you have an idea or preference? You can go in so many directions....let us know what decision you'd choose over others, and we can delve further into getting you the right information for updating your fireplace.

Hope to hear from you soon,

I agree with Josephs' replyThere are a few ideas to update or cover your fireplace brick. Besides painting, tiling, putting drywall over and completely removing the fireplace a good alternative would be using Faux Stone Panel.


The Superior stone panel is made from high density polyurethane. These panels perfectly recreate the look of natural stone. Each panel covers approximately 7 sq. ft. These faux stone panels fit together nearly seamlessly with their superior interlocking system.


 What once took highly trained mason hours to install, now can be done quickly and easily by the beginner do-it-yourselfer in very little time. Superior stack stone panels are durable, lightweight, cost efficient, authentic and cleaned easily with just soap and water.


Design ideas - superior stack stone panels are perfect for an interior accent wall, backsplash, outdoor kitchen or a complete exterior building facelift. Installing traditional stone would be a long drawn out process; however, those days are over with Superior Faux stone panels.


These panels can change the look and feel of any project in no time at all. Installation can easily be accomplished by the beginner do-it-yourselfer or the seasoned professional. The product is installed with screws, glue and can be cut easily with a hand saw or electric saw.


Panels can be mitered to create inside or outside corners. Also available are pre-molded corners that can be purchased separately. Available accessories (purchased separately): inside corner, outside corner, trim sill, top sill, touch up kit. Here is a link to show you more information:


Happy Building,
