Fireplace advice

10 September, 2019

Hey Houzzers... some advice needed please. We bought an Edwardian semi in Surrey thar has a few lovely fireplaces including the one fireplace in photo. The surround is cold to the touch so I presume it’s made of slate that has been painted in this “slightly” gothic red marble effect to match the tiles. I was hoping you could tell me:

  • is this original paintwork or a later addition?
  • I don’t really like the look of it and would like to change it however how can this be done? Painting? Changing the surround is not an option at this stage as the Reno work is limiting our budget

Thanks a lot!
