These are so cool! I found your hub by surfing about Hubpages – I am not sure why I have not heard of these before! I Enjoy the way the way that the a fire tends to make a room feel. I made use of to have a ‘real’ fireplace but did not use it as typically as I wanted mainly because it was such a discomfort. Now I have a gas fireplace and use it a lot in the winter – but it sits untouched in the summer time. I used it a lot last winter and but then promptly scaled back as soon as I got the gas bill (which quadrupled.) I like the notion of obtaining the ambiance of a fire with out the heat – and then becoming capable to ‘turn on’ the heat in addition to the flame in the winter.
That is lovely. We also constructed a faux wall fireplace, but we place our flat screen television in the major and utilised the sticky tiles and grouted about them to make them look like true stone tiles, it looks awesome. We place an old fashioned electric heater that appears like a wood burning stove and faux flames..so cute, on the hearth. Under the mantel my hubby added a shelf to place all the electronics. I would post a picture but we had to wipe out laptop not too long ago and the photos didn’t get saved..sigh!!
Choose mantel props that have varying colors, textures, shapes and sizes. Just as you’ve carried out with the rest of your staged property, keep away from compact stuff and go for significant, clean shapes. That doesn’t mean you can not use found objects from nature. Branches, pinecones, shells, rocks, feathers, and driftwood can be great mantel props.
