I have just moved into an old Edwardian house where there seems to be chimney breasts and fireplaces in all the rooms - including the bathroom (guess it was a bedroom before indoor plumbing!). I want to remove it but have been advised it is a very costly job. I have seen houses where they make features of disused chimneys/ fireplaces by enlarging the opening to give space for storage - I think could work and give us a bit more space in a small bathroom..
How can I do it, or do I need a builder?
p.s. should probably mention that in the kitchen below there isn't a fireplace or chimney - not sure it if was ever there or already removed.. just in case that makes a difference.2 AnswersDecorating & Remodeling1 decade ago
