Autumn is coming and everyone is looking for ways to add coziness and warmth to the interior. Fireplaces have always been used to keep rooms warm and they could be found in literally every room. If your house is old enough you must have one or more beautiful pieces and you don’t even know how lucky you are! Vintage items are in trend these days and adding just one or two will refine and add character to your interior. An antique fireplace is one of those features that instantly creates a beautiful ambiance, even when it’s not working. If you style it right, you will pull it off.
Chimneys not working
If you have an antique fireplace that you can’t use for some reason, you can always use it again. Put your books and magazines inside – such creative storage space gives your interior a special touch and you don’t need a separate storage space. You can turn the piece into a cool display that suits your interior, for example by placing some vintage suitcases, a globe or some souvenirs. Another idea is to create your own fireplace with candles. Just put in lots of candles and maybe on the mantel too. Light all the candles and you will get a very cozy atmosphere. Another way to design your fireplace is to display firewood and possibly a fake screen. In this way you mimic a working fireplace and create a cozy atmosphere.
If you can use the fireplace, you’re incredibly lucky! An antique fireplace turns your room into a beautiful one, it makes it warm, refined and beautiful. Remember that the fireplace should be safe: you can surround it with marble, stone or metal, and add a metal or glass screen. Design the mantel too – you can display your photos, paintings, figurines and candles on it. A vintage fireplace fits perfectly in any space, especially in a bedroom, living room or bathroom, turning the latter into a spa.
