20 Painted Brick Fireplaces in the Living Room

The fireplace becomes a focal point of the house wherever you place it, but usually it can be seen in the living room and has different finishes made of different materials. Some used concrete, other wood. But a common material that has always been used for a fireplace is the bricks. These not only look beautiful, but also give your home a natural look. And if you’re tired of looking at the natural brick finish, you can paint it anytime. Yes, brick fireplaces can be painted in any color you want!

I know, it sounds amazing that you can actually paint on your own brick fireplace! For this reason, we have put together some pictures of painted brick fireplaces in the living room. The common colors for fireplaces are white and gray, but I think nothing is wrong if you try to use other colors as well. However, what you will see in this list is white, gray and beige. These are of course the perfect colors for a fireplace, especially if you want a more neutral look. Scroll down now and see what we have for you.

I love this! Instead of painting the fireplace in one color, the owners decided to turn it into an accent wall with a geometric pattern. I also like the colorful cushions used in the house and the striped blue and white curtains. And of course, this chair looks really interesting!
