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?
Use it to showcase your books
The irony of adding something as flammable as paper to the fireplace is not lost on us. Trust us, it’s a great conversation-starter!
Paint it white and add a picture
Prop your favourite paintings or pictures against your faux fireplace to add some character to your room.
Fireplace within a fireplace
Inception, anyone? Here’s a great alternative if you’re looking to keep your tiles clean and manage your fireplace.
Add some funk using tiles
It’s not often your find prints framing your fireplace. Add an interesting mosaic pattern if you’re looking to give life to an old 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
A dash of colour never hurt anyone! Painting your fireplace is a great way to spark life into a featured wall.
