Warm up the interior with a decorative faux fireplace – over 80 wonderful suggestions

If you like the warmth of a wood-burning fireplace but cannot afford a real log fire in your home, perhaps the decorative faux fireplace is your solution to creating a romantic and welcoming atmosphere. Remember that it has almost the same decorative qualities as a real fireplace and can create a wonderful atmosphere even if it does not perform the same practical functions. In addition, the decoration you put on your faux fireplace is easily changeable and you can use the fireplace as a display that changes, and of course as a place for seasonal decoration. You can make your own fake fireplace or buy one, including an electric fireplace that reproduces flames by drawing energy from electricity. If you’ve ever seen an electric fireplace, you know how realistic they are.

Several decorative objects can be placed on or in your decorative fireplace and draw attention to one of your walls. The false fireplace can also perform practical functions, such as becoming a place for storing books or accessories or sheltering your flower pots. It is even possible to install a TV in the fireplace or on it. And here are some original ideas for decorating your decorative faux fireplace.

  • Use books and vintage objects such as old candle holders and utensils, antiques, vintage suitcases and art objects that evoke the spirit of a bygone era
  • Display your children’s drawings or family photos to have an intimate corner full of your memories in one of your rooms
  • Arrange a small garden with fake plants or real flowerpots
  • Make a garland of cones painted in golden or silver color, or if you want, paint them in different hues and fill a few large jars with them

  • Decorate the mantle with pumpkins and dry leaves during the fall
  • You can take one or a few of these lamps which imitate the dance of the flames and install them at the bottom of the mantle to create the illusion of a real fire.
  • Arrange logs and tree trunks within the mantle. They will bring a touch of rusticity and warmth to your space. Spray paints will help you personalize the decor even more. Turn logs into real works of art with sparkling or bright colors
  • Put a mirror at the back or on the mantle which will capture the light and make the decor even more magical

How to style your fireplace in unison with the different seasons and how to make an easy faux fireplace?

As Christmas approaches, the design of your fake decorative fireplace involves the use of all the known arsenal associated with winter festivals – snowflakes, pine twigs, characters and scenes from the Bible, deer, Santa Claus and Snow White, socks with gifts, festive candles, fairy lights etc. But who said you can’t create a springtime or seaside-style decoration with sea anchors, ropes and shells and themed lanterns! You are free to create your romantic corner with the theme you want. And even if you don’t have a faux fireplace, there’s nothing stopping you from creating one with simple materials like a console table or a decently shaped shelf. Placed in the exact place and decorated, these elements can easily play the role of a fireplace mantel. Paint the console, shelf or TV cabinet in your chosen color, create a patina or an aged effect and rejoice in what you have made. If you like to get into creative projects, try making a fake fireplace from cardboard, plasterboard, styrofoam, plywood. See also how to make a fake cardboard fireplace.

There is also the possibility of offering you an electric fireplace which is easier to maintain, eco-friendly and has different designs and there is something for everyone – rustic, modern, traditional. Such a fireplace can be integrated or hung on the wall. It can also be integrated into a piece of furniture. What you need to know is that the electric fireplace costs a lot more than any other decorative fake fireplace and despite the pretty spectacle it offers, its flames do not heat up. However, an electric fireplace is to be preferred to the traditional gas fireplace in terms of maintenance. It is true that the running costs of the electric fireplace can make us hesitate, but by comparing the monthly expenses and directories, we quickly see that the gas fireplace will cost us more. The installation and maintenance of a wood or gas fireplace requires ventilation, regular cleaning and these chimneys emit harmful gases. Their installation is not allowed everywhere, while the electric fireplace is an ideal solution for those looking only for the decorative side.
