Decorating Your Ethanol Fireplace

Disclosure: Mail4Rosey is helping promote this giveaway, and is not responsible for prize delivery!

One thing a lot of people love about their fireplace, is the visual it creates in a room.  When you have an ethanol fireplace, though they are oft times beautiful in their own right (Have you seen some of the styles they are sporting? Stunning!), until recently, I have not come across a way for owners make them look cozy & comfy, like their original counterparts.  That is no longer true!!  With a variety of authentic-looking decorative pieces, right down to the ceramic log set, you can now create a setting for your ethanol fireplace that beckons one to sit next to it, prop up their feet, and enjoy a hot cup of something, read a book ( or both!!).

Ethanol fireplaces are so much cleaner than the fireplaces of old.  I love me a pretty fireplace, but keeping it clean and attractive is no easy matter. With one of these newer types, clean is no longer an issue, and the fuel, made from renewable resources, is environmentally-friendly.  Have you seen some of the great styles going on with these things?  I can totally envision one in our entertainment room...and if we had one, I can also envision myself spending a lot more time in our entertainment room than I do at present.

If I've piqued your interest, and you might be interested in getting one of your own, I bet a $50 Visa gift card would be nice to help get you started, yes?  Enter to win below.  US & Canada only.

  2. I live in a small apartment so no fireplace here although I sometimes wish there was--I used to love sitting in front of a fireplace when I went visiting people who had one. It creates warmth both mentally and physically!

  4. Fireplaces would be stellar here, when the temperature dips to the 30s or 40s in the Carolinas. Hey, it's all relative!

  29. We are in the midst of considering changing our regular fireplace over to gas type. And if so, I would use it to buy the realist logs that ethanol firesplacepros offers. They look so very real & indeed would lesson the mess to clean after real wood & ashes. thanks sewitupjulie@gmail.com http://www.ethanolfireplacepros.com/9-piece-ceramic-log-set.html

  31. I live in Florida and we have a wood fireplace in our living room. I often wonder what the builders were thinking when they made that choice. This is FLORIDA. How often are we going to put wood in the fireplace for a rip roaring fire? Who wants to to locate and store said wood? How many really cold days do we get? And we have one full wall that is Good For Nothing. Since this winter has been unusually cold, I have thought maybe I should pay someone to come out and check the flue. But then I think, "Why?" So that I can burn wood for two days. Not worth it.

    That said, most of the rest of the country could use a fireplace of any kind.
