hi recently moved into rental property with an ugly boarded up fireplace. the board has a plastic vent on it. tiles look like they have been painted cream with some tiles stickers placed on. the hearth is large and sticks out along the carpet. can anyone suggest how to make it look better of completely hide it.

are you trying to "hide it" reduce visual impact or make some substantial alterations ??
what every you do your not allowed to do anything structural or damaging to the tiles like painting them without permission
you must also leave the airflow from the vent to stop dampness
you could try contacting the landlord or there agent to find out whats allowed or expected :dunno:

i was wanting to stand an electric fire on it one of those wood burning effect ones. but with board at back and vent plus tiles painted with that ronseal tile paint that apparently isn't heat resistant im guessing it wouldnt be safe to do so although i know nothing about fireplaces. that was my plan but if it cant be done then landlord has said i can cover it but how i don't know. the main of the fireplace has got to stay, i cannot have it taken out.
