Fireplace 8

We know how it gets sometimes. You move into a new apartment and everything is pretty amazing except for this raggedy fireplace that either: a) doesn’t look attractive whatsoever or b) doesn’t even work to begin with.

Instead of letting it collect dust and ruin your otherwise picture-perfect space, how about trying either one of these neat tricks?

Paint it white and add a picture

Prop your favourite paintings or pictures against your faux fireplace to add some character to your room.

Inception, anyone? Here’s a great alternative if you’re looking to keep your tiles clean and manage your fireplace.

Burn some candles

If it lights up then it might as well be used in place of logs, right? Candles work great if you have a faux fireplace. Consider painting your fireplace black and adding white candles to create a striking feature.

Splash of colour
