There’s something about a fireplace that instantly makes a room feel cozier and more inviting. Fireplaces can also serve as the focal point of a room and a centerpiece for the room’s decor. If your home was built without one, there are still ways to get the look you want.
You can create that feeling of coziness and create the perfect place for the whole family to relax with a faux fireplace. For a fraction of the cost of installing a real fireplace and chimney, you can use a faux version to create the perfect spot to relax. And faux fireplaces aren’t limited to the living room; they can provide character and warmth for bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and even bathrooms.
Once your faux fireplace is finished, you can add an electric log warmer to get the warmth and the beauty of a fireplace for a fraction of the cost of the real thing. And you don’t have to deal with the mess and maintenance of a chimney.
You can also go for the faux fireplace look if you have a non-working or less than appealing fireplace by renovating it—adding a new mantel or installing woodwork, stonework, or other design elements. It’s amazing how transforming the design elements around the fireplace can turn an eyesore into the showpiece of the room.
This elegant reclaimed fireplace mantel makes a lovely faux fireplace, with the interior painted black and piled logs to create authenticity. The room’s décor is built around the provincial French design of the mantel.
Your faux fireplace plans can include stonework or tile that can help add more formal touches to the room. Homeowners often put real logs in their fireplaces—in a variety of eye-catching configurations.
Placing candles inside a faux fireplace can give a cozy, glowing effect without an actual fire. While some faux fireplaces strive for authenticity, this one’s biggest feature is how well it fits into the room’s all-white décor.
A faux fireplace can become a focal point even for a small apartment. In this space, a small, simple fireplace design works best. The mirror inside the fireplace reflects the candles’ glow back into the room, doubling its output.
Faux fireplaces are a terrific way to dress up a bedroom. This one suits the room so well, it’s hard to believe it’s not original! The straight lines and carved details on this mantel echo the design of the molding, and the ornate fireplace screen adds a touch of authenticity.
