Decorative fireplace — a beautiful symbol of comfort
My old house already has a real fireplace, but in the new one, I still plan to lay out the oven and make a decorative version.
The reason is simple: the stove is necessary as a functional, and in addition to it, make a fireplace with a closed firebox (open to white interior is not suitable) for a budget building — unreasonably expensive.
Actual for the inhabitants of high-rises and just apartments.
Of all the options for imitation, I personally always prefer those where it is as reliable as possible. That is, if it is a fireplace, then there must be a fireplace portal and a flame. These requirements are met by two types of «fiery» decor: a bio-fireplace and a fireplace with candles.
A real fireplace is laid out of brick. But the material is heavy, it gives a load on the floors. Yes, and the design will be stationary. And most decorative fireplaces are mobile designs.
Finishing on GKL, you can choose any from plastering to pasting with flexible stone or tiles.
Will add chic to the design of the future fireplace «stucco» and moldings made of polyurethane, expanded polystyrene. However, the classic material — gypsum — is not excluded.
It all depends on your skill and budget.
Imitation of a wooden portal is best done from plywood with a thickness of 12 mm or more. To fasten the cut out elements together in a box, you can use the corners and small self-tapping screws (10 mm), called “fleas” by the finishers.
To finish the plywood base, I recommend choosing carved rosettes and wood moldings. A clear matt acrylic lacquer is suitable for finishing. It is tinted in the desired color with a universal pigment. The varnish dries quickly and is almost odorless.
My opinion: when the fireplace portal is made according to all the canons, the biofireplace will be the best option for “fire”.
- the walls of the furnace must not be made of flammable material,
- the distance from the flame to the side and rear walls should not be less than 15 cm,
- from the top point of the flame to the top of the “fireplace” firebox, a distance is observed that does not allow the material to heat up (it can be determined empirically even before the start of design — just hold the tile over the candle, adjusting the height).
It will be absolutely safe to decorate the firebox with LED candles, garlands, logs, figurines, books and even flowers …
If the interior design does not at all imply the presence of a fireplace portal in it, and sometimes you still want a little romance, you can build a structure symbolizing a fireplace from a console table, if any)))

Decoration interior mirror tiles — a fashion trend. Therefore, like everything fashionable, it can become obsolete. In order not to be disappointed in your choice, you should familiarize yourself with some of the nuances of «Through the Looking Glass» at the stage of interior design.
The tradition of decorating the interior floor with tiles came to us from the Mediterranean countries. Later, this practical idea “crawled” onto the walls. You may or may not like such a unique and comfortable finishing material, but it is quite difficult to completely abandon it in the interior.
