I need a help

So we’re pulling trim down around the Towner project. Under all the heavy lathe & plaster is a red brick fireplace. The front of the fireplace faces the family room. The back (red brick) is in the Master Bedroom. Should I pull all the l&p down. Repair replace the brick as needed then seal it nicely, making it a focal point in the room? Or should I drywall over it just creating a flat wall, hiding the fireplace?

Crappy celly pics but help ideas appreciated.

      the front of the fireplace is in the living room. the picture is in the master bedroom. so a utility closet isn’t gonna go over so well. so far i’ve got a fireplace crew coming out to regrout and sand blast the brick then we’ll seal it. non shiny. to the right is enuf space for someone to put a highboy dresser. to the left is the enuf wall space for the electrical and then the door begins. i’ll get some better pictures up today.

      happy Tday!!
