A fireplace can bring warmth and coziness like no other décor feature, it’s especially important in the fall and winter. If you don’t have a fireplace, even an electric one, and can’t make it, you can always opt for a faux fireplace and decorate it so that it could bring no less warmth than a usual fireplace. Let’s have a look how to decorate your faux fireplace to get a maximal impact and add more coziness.
Putting candles is one of the most popular ways to spruce up a non-working fireplace or a faux one. Candles perfectly imitate real fire, just be careful if you use them without candle holders, don’t set everything on fire! Glass candle holders and even lanterns are a great idea for decorating and it’s absolutely safe. Mirror surfaces behind the candles emphasize the light.
Logs are another cozy idea for decorating a faux fireplace. These may be real logs, logs with candles inserted (don’t forget candle holders not to burn anything) or even faux log panels that just cover the whole fireplace. You can also make a cool decorative chevron board to cover the fireplace, it’s always actual.
Fireplaces are great for storing and displaying anything. Potted greenery, flowers and succulents can be placed inside to enliven the space a little bit, they’ll look unusual. You can even make shelves inside a fireplace and put anything you like there, it looks eye-catching and stylish.
