Following on from my (eventually) successful exploits with coving, I'm now having to look at the fireplace. This is the original from when the house was built in 1955 and is a tiled affair for a real fire. We want to keep the real fire so I'm looking for advice. Can they be taken out with not too much trouble...how are they fastened to the chimney breast? I did wonder about re-tiling it but I don't know whether my tiling skills are up to the job! Any input gratefully received.
