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.

MikiHope said...

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!

mail4rosey said...

I've never had one, I'd like to though!

mail4rosey said...

Agreed!

Pat Hatt said...

No fireplace at all at my hall, but 50 bucks would be grand, buy cat toys across the land lol

mail4rosey said...

Canadians eligible, woot! :)

coach-daddy said...

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

Anonymous said...

I keep telling my husband that we need one of these in our Master Bathroom! So far, my plea has fallen on deaf ears LOL

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R said...

When looking for a home a fireplace was on our list--but it got cut for an extra bedroom--would love to get one of these =)

Kim Croisant said...

Very nice - I love fireplaces and wish I had one in every room!!

Elisebet F said...

If I won the GC, I'd probably use it to pay for gas or groceries.

Mama to 5 said...

very pretty, wish we had a fire place, not needed here in South Florida! If I won I would use it in our family time - maybe dinner and a drive in movie!

Maddi'sMommy said...

That's really cute, I wish we had a fireplace. It would be great on days like today when its 18degrees!

Susan Zutautas said...

I'd love one too, and have the perfect spot to put it :)

Jennifer Clay said...

I have a fireplace but it needs repair :/ But I would save this if I won and use it for diapers/wipes or anything that my baby would need. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary @Capturing Magical Memories said...

We have a gas fireplace and like you am so glad there are options to make it cozy.

lisa said...

Very different. I've never heard of these, but a practical alternative to a traditional fireplace.

Corinne Schmitt said...

We love having a fireplace! It's one of our favorite family times together--gathering in front of the fireplace to play a game or drink hot cocoa. I agree, keeping the traditional kind clean is such a pain.

Cheryl Chervitz said...

I have always wanted a fireplace, but sadly I don't have one. I would use this to pay bills if I won.

Mimi Baker said...

I wish we had a fireplace! I had no idea there was even such thing as an ethanol fireplace. I love the look of the one above.

Sandee said...

We have a gas one and it's beautiful. Can't burn wood here since we live in a valley and our air quality is pretty poor most of the time.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

J. Cutshaw said...

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

I have a 1920's home with a brick fireplace but NO chimney...been look at ventless Ethanol fireplaces inserts

Robin said...

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.

HarleyC said...

I'd use it for groceries

Angel said...

We have two 'fireplace' heaters in our living room at present. I find them very cozy. We would love to win the gift certificate. We would put it to good use! God bless! :)

Mistee Dawn said...

Joanna Sormunen said...

Ethanol fireplace sounds like a great idea! It's real fire and you get the warmth and the lovely atmosphere but it is much more eco-friendlier than log fire. Thank you for sharing!

I wish we didn't take out the artificial fireplace that we had in our house after we moved in. I remember going to coldstone and they have a nice artificial fireplace there and even though it's just decorative, it does help being warm by thinking and just watching the flames. wish to use the gc for something else if I win :D

Mel Cole said...

as for the gc, wish to buy a new pair of sneakers :)
