Many of the new prefabricated metal fireboxes don't even require a chimney. Only if the fireplace is meant to be wood burning is there a need to vent smoke up and out. If it's solely a gas-burning fireplace a direct vent (directly outside behind the fireplace) or a no-vent solution works just fine.
Brick fireplaces are the most popular to replace. Henry says a quick and easy solution is to simply wrap the brick in either tile or wood leaving the exposed brick for the firebox. “It’s a more updated look that’s one of the least expensive” she says. And that way the brick will remain beneath the new material in case a future home buyer prefers brick. You could also choose to drywall or plaster over the brick creating a blank canvas that you can then do pretty much anything you want with.
