how to style an antique fireplace 27 ideas cover

Fall is coming, and everyone is looking for ways to add coziness and warmth to the interiors. Fireplaces have always been used for keeping rooms warm, and you could find them literally in any space. If your house is old enough, I bet you have such a gorgeous piece or several ones, and you don’t even know how lucky you are! Vintage items are extremely trendy today, and adding just one or two will make your interior refined and will give it a character. An antique fireplace is one of such features that will create a gorgeous ambience at once, even if it’s non-working, if you style it right, you’ll nail it.

Non-Working Fireplaces

If you have an antique fireplace that you can’t use for some reason, you can always repurpose it. Place your books and magazines inside – such a creative storage space will give your interior a twist plus you won’t need any separate storage. You can turn the piece into a cool display that fits your interior, for example, place some vintage suitcases, a globe or some souvenirs. One more idea is creating your own fireplace with candles, just put lots of candles inside and maybe on the mantel, too. Light all the candles and you’ll get a very cozy atmosphere. Another way to style your fireplace is to display some firewood and maybe a forged screen, this way you’ll imitate a working fireplace and will add coziness.
