Keeping this in consideration, is it OK to paint a brick fireplace?
Paint the Brick Once the primer is dry, it's time to paint. Choose indoor, latex, heat resistant paint—either flat, semigloss, or gloss—rated to withstand temperatures generated by the fireplace (generally about 200°F) and a roller designed for textured surfaces.
Also, is painted brick a good idea? Painting exterior brick can certainly be beneficial, but it's also a task that comes with some important considerations. Painted brick is permanent. The good news is that you can change the paint color as often as you'd like, so you don't have to be married to one hue forever. Moisture can cause paint to chip.
Similarly, you may ask, what color should I paint my brick fireplace?
Tan, beige, cream and light gray blend in for a natural look. Soft shades of black and gray work well with contemporary style rooms. Whitewashing, painting a solid light neutral color, or using a product such as Brick-Anew to create a “real brick” look will blend in with any decor.
Which is better stain or paint on brick fireplace?
Staining Brick Quicker and easier than painting, brick staining accentuates the natural texture of the brick rather than masking it. It absorbs into the brick rather than covering the surface like paint, so ultimately a stain acts like a dye.
