Fireplace Removal in Edinburgh

fireplace removal edinburgh

Edinburgh has some of the most beautiful, and the ugliest fireplaces I’ve ever seen. Of course, fireplace removal is entirely subjective. We don’t care how it looks, for us the important thing is doing surgical removal of the fireplace properly, and restore the wall back to a clean finish. Like magic, your fireplace will be gone!

Fireplace Removal requires a bit of care and actually involves renovation and restoration methods to remove the fireplace correctly. Removing the fireplace is actually the easy bit, the skill and effort come in restoring the space around the fireplace to a seamless transition that avoids any noticeable change or damage from before the fireplace removal.

Paintworks and Plastering receive many fireplace removal projects. Here’s one from a recent Morningside fireplace removal job.


The customer wanted to utilise the wall space. We removed the fireplace, framed the void, fitted plasterboard, and plastered the area. We then had a new Dado Rail run-up to match the existing and made a new box skirting to match the existing. The wall was also papered with lining paper to complete the project.

Next, this Edinburgh fireplace removal job required the skirting and Dado Rail to be removed.

Next, we had to recreate the box skirting.

Then we framed it, plastered it, and built skirting and a Dado Rail.
