instylerooms-2017-11-how to choose a faux fire place

You don’t have to become a certified chimney sweep or know how to chop wood to experience the warmth and coziness a fireplace can bring to your home. A faux fireplace can provide that same warmth and charm without the mess and hassle of a wood-burning fireplace. Read our tips below on what to look for when buying a faux fireplace.


A faux fireplace can become the focal point of any room. You can choose from several different styles, depending on your preferences. Styles vary and can be old-fashioned, modern, contemporary or somewhere in between. Add elegance to any room in your home that you can only get with a fireplace.



If you’re into convenient and easy, then a propane faux fireplace might be for you. Propane fireplaces create a beautiful flame while warming up the room. They are safe, plus propane is a clean-burning fuel. Propane fireplaces are available in a variety of styles to fit any taste.


Electric can provide the fuel for your fire in the form of LED lights. An electric fireplace is often a good choice because they are:

  • Easy to maintain
  • Cost-efficient
  • Energy-efficient
  • Odorless
  • Safe
  • Easy to use


A faux fireplace that uses steam to produce life-like flams is an innovative choice. A steam fireplace is built to withstand everyday use while consuming extremely small amounts of water when in use. It is safe to touch and uses clean steam energy.
