Faux Fireplaces

Faux Fireplaces - Why Use Them?

If you currently do not have a fireplace in your home, yet you would love to have the look of one. Faux fireplaces may be the solution you're looking for.

Installing an actual fireplace is no easy task, not to mention how expensive it can be. And when you take into account all of the maintenance and the mess, it's easy to see the advantages a faux fireplace brings to the home.

Naturally, there are disadvantages of these types of fireplaces. One of the major ones being that they produce no heat. Since there is no fire, there's no heat. (You can put in a heater underneath the logs though.)

They can also look cheap if you're not careful and pick out the wrong design.

Installation

When it comes to installing a fireplace like this, you have a couple of options. First, you can opt for a higher end model that is built on site and professionally installed.

You can also purchase one that is fully assembled and ready to be installed.

Finally, you can purchase one that requires assembly. I don't recommend going that route unless you're an expert or you'll have an expert doing the assembly and installation.

Faux Fireplace Options

One of the more important options you'll find is in regards to the finish. Don't skimp on the quality if you want the fireplace to last for years in the future.

You can also get more extravagant artistic features built into the fireplace as well. Finish it off with a beautiful mantle piece and you have something very special.

For those who don't want to go to the expense or have the upkeep that comes with a real wood burning fireplaces, then faux fireplaces are well worth looking into.
