Rookwood Tile Fireplace

What Houzzers are commenting on:
I grabbed this one as it includes a few design elements not in my previous examples. The vertical elements on either side of the surround are pilasters (legs) which are then flanked by an an aditional pilaster being used as a return to the wall. The mantel is topped by a built in with crown molding. In your use-case I would assume the center cabinets would be a single panel (or just drywall) and the TV would be reinstalled. I like the shelving on either side of the TV location as well, but it may not "fit" with the room or the look you want. The primary stain is lighter than I think you are interested in in this example, but the stain can be changed.
