Bring New Life To Your Fireplace

There is nothing more comfortable than sitting by a warm and crackling fire. Unfortunately, these days, many old and beautiful fireplaces are not safe for actually burning wood so we have to think of unique ways to use these spaces and keep them cozy focal points in our homes.

Many people add candles to their fireplaces to achieve a warm glow similar to that of actual burning embers. Another way to create a rustic and homey feel is to stack chopped wood in the firebox...



Use your non-working fireplace to display some of your book collection. We like the look of neat stacks or an artful, haphazard approach...



Try moving some of your displayed accessories and artifacts from the mantel down to the firebox...


Add a touch of the outdoors and bring new life to your fireplace with one large plant or an arrangement of potted greenery...


And, if you're open to converting the fireplace more permanently, you can design a custom storage space for your wine collection...
