3 Ways to Style a Faux Fireplace for the Holidays

There isn’t anything quite like a fireplace to help warm up your home and add some holiday spirit. Don’t have a built-in feature fireplace in your home? No problem – build one! Something as simple as an old desk hutch or bookshelf can easily be rehabbed into a chic fireplace surround with the help of some paint and a new wood backboard. Such is the case with this thrifted desk hutch turned faux fireplace featuring the stunning chevron Zanzibar.

We’ve rounded up three ways to style a faux fireplace using items you likely already have around your home! But before we get to style inspiration, here’s a look at the “before”!

The Before

It may not look like much, but a little paint goes a long way!


The After

1. “Electric Stove” Space Heater

Perhaps our favorite option for a faux fireplace insert would be a “stove” space heater! Completely electric, this space heater has realistic flames that lend both a warm aesthetic and practical heat on chilly nights!

2. Rustic Tray & Electric Candles

Simple and understated, a rustic tray and battery-operated candles allow you to see more of the gorgeous wood backboard and yet still adds a warm glow!

3. Cozy Blankets & Pillows

A few festive blankets and a fluffy pillow provide a simple, casual aesthetic. Bonus points if your pillow has a snowman or other Christmas character!

When it comes to decorating a faux fireplace, the options are truly endless. From stacks of books to candles and birch logs, there is no wrong way to style it!
