Our family room is the focal point of our home – and our family room corner fireplace is, in our opinion, an eye sore!
•Transform the ugliest fireplace in Las Vegas into a contemporary, functional family room focal point.
•Identify new flooring materials to replace existing flooring in the family room and kitchen/breakfast nook and entry foyer.
•Identify new paint color(s) for the family room, kitchen/breakfast nook and entry foyer areas.
•There is currently a mechanically sound, functional gas, vented fireplace.
•The fireplace has an on/off switch as well as an on/off gas valve located on the wall to the left of the fireplace.
•Modifications to the existing fireplace, including replacement of the fireplace with a new fireplace, or use of a new fireplace insert or replacement of fire logs with a modern alternative are all options to be considered, but gas should remain the fuel for the remodeled fireplace.
•The footprint of the existing fireplace can be changed as required, but the new fireplace should function with minimal modifications to the existing venting and meet local building requirements.
•Redesigned fireplace should not utilize traditional gas logs.
•The ceiling height in the corner where the fireplace is located is 14 ft.
•The family room is open to our kitchen/breakfast area as well as a large central raised (one step) foyer. The kitchen has light wood cabinets with Silestone Brazilian brown quartz countertops, black/stainless steel appliances and stainless steel sink/accent pieces.
•The wall to the left of the fireplace is currently our entertainment center (56” flat panel TV, and supporting hardware components housed in and on an entertainment console) centered on a wall that is 14’2".
•The wall to the right of the fireplace has French doors that lead to our pool area.
•See building plan and photos for additional information/detail.
**A traditional fireplace with mantel is NOT what we are looking for**
Creativity is encouraged! Primary consideration will be given to submissions that meet the design objective - a contemporary redesign of the existing corner fireplace. Options for fireplace designs that offer additional functionality and/or options for expanding the scope of the project to incorporate the design of an entertainment center area in conjunction with the fireplace redesign will be considered as well. Budget is a consideration - but visual impact and value per dollar spent will be weighted when reviewing all submitted designs.
