New Ideas For Your Fireplace (Even If You Don’t Have One!)

Nothing says winter like curling up by a fireplace. Unless of course you’re terrified of an open flame in your home, in which that full winter cozy effect never seem to come. Well cheer up because you don’t need a raging fire in a brick box to make the season seem bright.  We’ve got some stylish ideas for your home’s hot spot and even some DIY fireplace inspiration in case you don’t have one.

  1. Let’s start with the faux fireplace. Fake it till you make it! Well then kick your but into craft gear to make sure you’ve got the perfect place to hang your stockings in time for the holidays. Not the crafting type? Don’t worry, you can still chalk it up!

  2. Get your cozy on. Stock your fireplace full of baskets filled with blankets, throw pillows and a sweater or two. Top it all off with a lush rug and bam, you’ve got a new storage spot and a fireplace that will keep you warm sans flame.

  3. Utilize an unused fireplace for storage. Coffee table space comes at a serious premium, so go ahead and add some stacks of your beloved magazines to your fireplace. Or, if your kitchen is home to a fireplace, use it to hold cookbooks and tools.

  4. Keep it colorful! Take that dark fireplace and liven it up with some pops of color. Paint the fireplace itself, or go a little more subtle by painting the ends of logs. Either way, that fireplace is bound to pop!
