We have a large tiled hearth infront of a neat hole in the chimney breast,currently housing the router and digital box. Up above it is the tv on the wall.I want to move the tv off the wall onto a unit at the side however that will leave an empty wall, empty hole and large hearth. We dont have the budget for a log burner.Whats in/on your hearth if you dont have a fire/fire surround.
We have a clock on the mantel piece and 2 photo frames. On the hearth itself we have a glass vase that has either fresh flowers or artificial ones. Above the heath and mantel piece on the wall we have a massive collage photoframe.
Thanks, we have a good collection of pictures we could put into a nice frame above the "hole".
I had mine bare for ages until I figured out what to do with it. I always think that pictures are one of the best decorations!
Do you have a fire?
No I don't we have just like the same as you described.
Glass vase and artificial flowers sounds great will look for something that will fit.
Used to be just a wicker box. Now I have an electric fire thing that looks like a log burner. We don't use it because it is noisy, but it looks nice!
Next door neighbour has pillar candles.
We have a metal fire basket and some logs. It just doesn't do anything because there is no chimney on the floor above.
Mixture of logs and candles gives a nice effect. Alternatively an electric fire that looks like a wood burner? I've seen a few on our local Facebook buying and selling page for about £50 second hand.
I'd go metal fire basket with pillar candles inside in a range of sizes. Then you can light the candles and it provides a warm cosy focal point in the same way a real fire would.
