There are many ways to decorate your house. The simplest way is by creating a lovely and unique theme for your space. People can underestimate the power a fireplace’s hearth can have on you and your guests’ perception of a living space.

Faux Fireplaces Have Their Own Charm
Decorating your hearth is a very important practice because it’s the focal point of the room. Not only does it make good conversation with your guests, but it makes your home feel more alive depending on the theme or on how often you switch your decorations. I usually change my decoration every 3 months, except in the winter where I change it twice, because it fills my house with the magic of the season; kind of like Disney movies!
Decorate That Empty Hole With A Fake Fireplace
Before even starting, you need to know what kind of faux fireplace you want. There are plenty of choices, from an ethanol fire bowl, to logs backlit with a soft light, or simply candles. First of all, you need to choose the colors and the kind of decorations you want. Then, place items on the mantel. Don’t forget to add a painting on top of it too. Another piece of advice I could give you is to add an accessory like a decorative fireplace screen, fireplace grates, or a pot with branches or flowers inside. These are all just general ideas.
