fake fireplace and mantel. In recent years, the faux fireplace has come of age. For instance, for those who hate to deal with real wood and ashes, a fake electric fireplace can be a viable alternative. If one wants the look of a fireplace—but not the warmth—a fake stone fireplace may do the trick. A fake rock fireplace can also be a natural conversation-starter. If you’re in the market for a fake fireplace and mantel, you have a number of choices available to you. For example, if your space is limited, you might opt for a fake corner fireplace. If you want the appearance of a fire—but not the mess—a fake fireplace log may be appropriate. You can build a fake fireplace yourself, or have a professional do the job.

Building a Fake Fireplace
If you want to make a fake fireplace, but you’re unsure of yourself, never fear. If you have the ability to read a set of instructions, you should be able to complete the task. By choosing the do-it-yourself option, you can create an imitation granite fireplace that can be a real treasure. This is because a fireplace can easily dress up a drab room, adding visual interest to a living room or family room. You can even make it look more authentic by adding a basket of real logs.

What You’ll Need
Of course, to make a good-looking faux fireplace, you’ll need the right materials. In addition to the pieces for the fireplace and mantel, you’ll have to have screws, a paintbrush, a paint roller, an artist-quality acrylic primer, a ruler, and masking tape. If these sound like they could be the materials used in a children’s art project, that’s not really off the mark. Creating a faux fireplace, is, in essence, a craft project—but one that can add a new dimension to your living space.

make a fake fireplace. Be Patient With Yourself
If your faux fireplace idea marks the first time you’ve ever tried home remodeling, keep in mind that you’ll need to take your time. Rushing the job might just lead to frustration. You can create a truly attractive, memorable design—but it will take some preparation on your part.
