How to Make a Brick Fireplace

To make a good brick fireplace, buy new bricks to make it look like new. Avoid buying used brick just because it has a lower price, as this can compromise the look of the fireplace in a short time. Another advantage of a brick fireplace is its installation, much easier than stone fireplaces, for example, and you may not even need an expert (video of how to make a brick fireplace at the end of the article).

Once you’ve chosen the place where the fireplace will be installed in your home, just buy the bricks at building material stores or building depots. Depending on the design of your fireplace, the amount of bricks may vary slightly. Some observations are essential to make your fireplace:

  • Fire chamber: It is the opening of the fireplace to the environment that will be heated. A sloping wall should be made at the bottom so that hot air is directed into the room.
  • Hood and fireplace duct: They will serve to stop the cold air that may come from outside and also serve to capture the smoke to throw it outside.

The wall that will house the fireplace should be tilted forward at 45° to keep warm air in and to blow smoke out.
