Style Your Home Office
Adding a faux fireplace to your home office may seem unusual, but it can add a lot of ambiance to your workspace. And the great thing about fake fireplaces is that you can put them on any convenient wall.
Amaze your clients with the added style a faux fireplace imbues on your office space. If you're considering a fake fireplace for your office, think about more modern elements like LED or electrical insert. Even in a classically decorated home office, a minimalist faux fireplace can add a warm yet professional focal point to the room.
Warm Up Your Kitchen
The kitchen is the home's communal hub, so it's a great idea to introduce a faux fireplace as a soulful centerpiece.
Pay homage to Victorian-era, stone-paved kitchens, with their steel ranges and blazing coal fires, by creating a fake wall fireplace with decorative tile insets and a marble hearth.
You can also add character and atmosphere to your kitchen by installing an electric fire insert. These vent-free faux fires have built-in coils that heat cold air and integrated fans that push this warm air back into your kitchen. You won't need to purchase charcoal or wood, and you'll have no problems with setting the heating system up. You can just plug the unit into any wall outlet, switch on its power button, and you're good to go.
This energy-efficient, ergonomic fireplace design takes up very little space in your kitchen and will warm you and your family up during the colder months of the year. Look for a unit that is Energy Star rated for the most eco-friendly option.
Create a Cozy Patio
One of the best places to install a new fake fireplace is in your outdoor seating area. A faux fireplace is a perfect way to pull any outdoor living space together with or without a flame display.
Outdoor patios and deck areas benefit from well-placed lighting elements, and a fake fireplace provides the perfect glowing ambiance for your outdoor space.
Ensure that the housing for your faux fireplace is weather-resistant so that they won't get ruined in inclement weather. Don't use an indoor fake fireplace outdoors unless it is also outdoor rated, as the heating elements and electrical components do not have adequate insulation against the weather.

Styling a Faux Fireplace in Your Living Room
The remarkable aspect of faux fireplaces is that they are so easy to put in, are compatible with every style of decor, and don't require upkeep.
Choosing the opposite style to your prevailing aesthetic is an exciting way to change up your aesthetic. If you have predominantly traditional decor, consider a sleek modern faux fireplace to give your classic look an edge.
If you have a simplistic, modern space, go for a baroque style faux fireplace for an exciting juxtaposition and talking point. Any way you want to style it, a fake fireplace will add extra aplomb to your living space.
